What are the benefits of training my parrot?
Training with your parrot using kind, respectful and positive reinforcement training methods is extremely beneficial to their overall well being and is 100% guaranteed to vastly improve your relationship with your birds.
Parrots are extremely intelligent animals. Did you know that scientists have found that parrots have the intelligence equal to a mid-sized primate and a five year old human child? Training your parrot gives them a sense of challenge and achievement which enriches their mind.
Parrots are flock animals and require a lot of attention. Training with your birds is a form of giving them attention which is a great bonding experience especially when they associate you with fun playtime and desirable rewards. Training is a great way to build trust especially with an untame and handshy bird.
Due to their intelligence and need for attention, a bored parrot is likely to develop undesirable behavior and habits such as screaming, aggression, chronic egg laying, feather plucking etc. Training regularly with your parrots will help keep them stimulated and occupied, reducing or preventing those problem behaviours.
Recall training with your parrots provides them the opportunity to practice flying, keeps them active and improves their stamina and fitness too!
Prickly ash wood, non-toxic plastic, human-grade natural dehusked sunflower seeds
Never starve, weight manage or restrict your bird from an appropriate diet when training!
Feed the sunflower seeds sparingly as the seeds are high in fat. It is recommended to break the seeds into smaller pieces when rewarding smaller parrots to minimize their intake as well as training efficiency (less time eating the seeds during training)
The dehusked sunflower seeds included in the Bird Training Pack is meant to be used as a training reinforcer (aka training treat). It’s effectiveness as a training reinforcer largely lies in its perceived desirability to your parrot. Parrots on a full or high seed diet are unlikely to find the reinforcer (treat) attractive enough as a training motivator. It is highly recommended to first convert a parrot to a varied, low fat diet, and remove sunflower seeds from the daily diet for general health and training effectiveness.
