My attempt with bird training - video

I just started a little training with the conures to see if I can get them to do the 'turn around' trick - so far only Maroon bellied conure Tai is co-operating a little bit.

Please get out the popcorns, sit back, and I hope you enjoy the training movie.

Not them, just him which is the Maroon belly(Tai) others can't be bothered. I first just circles the treat around his body and get him to follow it in a spin, I would use the command 'turn around' when he does a spin, then when he's used to hearing me saying 'turn around' he'll turn sometimes, other times he does need slight more encouragement.
