You are confused because you do not understand the role that foraging plays in behavior, including training. Seagoatdeb nailed it, and is right.

OK, maybe I don't understand something so why don't you explain it and provide reputable links that support your theory? It would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry, when it comes to parrots, the only 'common knowledge' is that there is no such thing :lol: But if you can't provide links or explanation, that's OK, not everybody is willing or able to debate a subject.

With the limbic system there certainly is. It isn't my job to educate you. It's your job to educate yourself.

I dont think its finished just because you didnt understand where Cage Cleaner was coming from when she said to go back and reread, or when she pointed to where to look for your own answers. Most people do not want to debate and some people do not want to be told they must find links for someone else. But that doesnt mean they dont want to continue on a topic that is of interest to them.

We can all talk about if we think our parrots enjoy training, its a great topic. We can help each other to understand our parrots better, and the role training plays. We all have different perspectives and what we say will resonate with different people.

One of the ways I have trained Gaugan is through my play fighting with her. Since she already flipped herself upside down on my hand , i would say upside down when she did it. She loves her play fighting so when I started to say upside down and she "got it" i would praise her and make my clicking sound and play more. Her rewards were being able to play longer and praise. She learned "right side up", "feet" when i wanted her to hang on to me with her feet. She enjoys it, i have no doubt.

Another thing I trained her to do is to shake her head for no, so when i ask her if she wants something, like a treat she will either shake her head vigourously for no, or tip forward for yes. If I say "take a taste" she will take a small taste before she shakes her head no.The more she disikes something the more vigorous the head shake....lol...Banana pieces are very disliked.

So far Sunny likes everything so no point in teaching him the head shake.
