Common girly - don't be shy - turn around

I have never yet failed when birds have their legs in the air like that, they're always satisfied and always totally cool with it

Awesome pics! How do you get them to do it?

Thanks. With my senegal I trained him from a young age, he now loves being touched and doesn't mind if I grab him and flips him about. I would not be able to train older birds to do this.

And now a little detail about this grey. When I adopted her the previous owner showed me that she will lie on her back, and after 2 days of her being with me, I was able to flip her over she didn't make any fuss about it. The training was done with the previous owner, I didn't do anything

Cute! I can get my Skyler to lay on his back in my hand. I'll have to try Karma next.
