All the Bells and Whistles

Dear Parrot Lover,

Some parrots are prone to developing bad habits just like a three year old child is prone to having a tantrum. Just like with a child, a parrot will need to ‘unlearn’ those behaviors and replace them with acceptable ones. Ignorance is not bliss in this case as those bad habits and behaviors can cause your parrot to injure himself or worse. Every parrot can be trained out of their bad habits and behaviors. It is simply a matter of learning how to properly train your parrot and have lots of patience.

Training Recommendations:

Decide on a training time that does not interfere with your family’s busiest times, such as during breakfast or when everyone comes home from school or work.

Set a time limit. A good timeframe for any training session is 20 to 30 minutes. It best to keep them on the shorter side as your parrot may become bored and act out which will have the opposite effect of what you are trying to accomplish.

Make sure that you are in a calm and relaxed frame of mind before taking your parrot out of their cage to begin a training session. Parrots are sensitive creatures and will mimic your emotions.

Study your parrot’s body language as this will help you to quickly identify when your parrot is stressed out or about to lash out and bite you. Their body language is the only true way in which they can really communicate to you. A stressed out or nervous parrot will not learn anything during a training session simply because they will be too consumed with being stressed out and nervous. Offer your parrot a treat to calm them down.

Positive reinforcement is the best method of training any parrot anything. Immediately after your parrot has obeyed your command or responded to your training request, whether or not he was successful, you should give him a treat or praise. However, if your parrot is not truly following your command or is obviously acting out, it is best to simply ignore him.

Regardless of how frustrated you become, you should never punish your parrot by withholding food or treats or by hitting or throwing things at your parrot. Negative attention, such as in the form of punishment, is still deemed to be attention from you by your parrot and so punishing him will simply condition your parrot to become used to the negative attention which will simply perpetuate his naughty behavior.

Once the allotted time for the training session is completed, return your parrot back to his cage or play stand so that he can have some well-deserved playtime.

Bird Training That Is Easy!

Dear Parrot Lover,

Can you imagine the surprise on your friend’s faces when, while visiting you, your parrot all of sudden starts talking and joins in your conversation?

“Polly said what?”

Beaming with pride you’ll have to explain that your parrot is so smart that she learned to talk and carry on conversations with you.

But how do you know if your parrot is smart enough to learn to talk in the first place? And how do you teach her to talk and have a conversation?

Well, firstly, all parrots are very intelligent creatures; more so than what we humans sometimes give them credit for. Typically speaking, the larger the parrot, the smarter they are and the better their aptitude for learning to talk and do other tricks. If you want a parrot to talk purchase an African Grey, Macaw, Amazon or Cockatoo as these have the largest propensity to speech. However, smaller parrots such as Conures and Cockatiels can often be taught to talk as well.

So now that you know what species of parrots can talk, you just have to learn how to teach your parrot to talk. Do not be too intimidated by this process. It can be fun for both you and your parrot if you learn a few basic steps first.

The first major point to keep in mind before starting any type of training session with your parrot is to make sure that you have plenty of patience. You may want to have your parrot speaking a few words almost immediately but do understand that it may take a while, sometimes a few weeks of solid training before that will happen. The more your parrot trusts you and the better your rapport with your parrot, the faster she will learn to talk.

Since parrots typically have the intellectual capability of a two to three year old toddler, not only can they learn to talk just like a toddler can, but they can also be subject to tantrums that toddlers usually have as well. Therefore, having lots of patience with your parrot is the best way to begin any type of training session.

The next thing to remember is to keep your parrot’s training sessions short, sweet and straight to the point with lots of fun and games thrown in for good measure. The more fun a parrot can have, the faster they will learn! Keep the sessions between 20 and 30 minutes each. Once you’ve realized that your parrot no longer has any interest in their training session, then it is time for the session to end. Do not force your parrot to continue with the session; allow your parrot to set the pace of the training.

Begin by only teaching your parrot to say just one or two words. You can slowly
start adding in more words to your parrot’s vocabulary as the training sessions progress. Always pronounce the words very clearly to help your parrot to be able to learn them and repeat them. Soon you’ll be able to teach your parrot to have a conversation by repeat whole phrases.
