Stick em up!

So I went with the least intrusive way of teaching this, by tilting the hand so she would flap, now she flaps consistently when given the cue, how can I shape the behavior into just opening her wings when I give the cue (shape hand into a gun), any ideas?

I find it less intrusive than poking underneath her wings, seems to really irk Shyla.

Myrtle is very verbal. She once said awh and flipped her head sideways. My daughter shot her with a finger and did the same thing. Myrtle now acts like she has been shot when we do it.
