Sorry but I can't help with this one. I don't teach any tricks to any of my birds. They know A LOT of commands and they are actually quite obedient but no tricks.

I don't teach tricks either as I've said before just basic commands, But have you taught him to drop objects? I taught Oscar in one day and it comes in handy so I would call that a basic command, You can use it to play a game.

Ducky knows how to fetch and give me an object on command, but I haven't really taught him to just drop it. We love playing games of fetch together, where I will put the ball on his cage top, send him back to perch, he grabs the ball, I call him over and he flies with the ball and drops it in my hand. He will also do it running across the top of the cage to get the ball and bring it back.
