Bird tricks training

I wondered if anyone has used the bird tricks training program?
I'm looking into it but am not sure about switching Bob's diet and weighing his food?
I don't even know how much food an IRN eats in a day.
He bins loads of it!

They do seem to know what they're talking about though.

Bob's diet is currently mixed seed, dried fruit. fresh fruit, rice past and veggies and for a treat he has bread or biscuit but very small quantities.

Someone told me to keep his diet the same and use his very favourite food as a treat to tame him?

I don't know what to do?

its funny that you said this, because I just received my train your parrot to talk package in the mail from them. I am going to test it out. no harm in trying. the only thing I do not like is he says you always have to keep your bird a bit hungry for the training to work "faster". hmmm I also do not have them on a feeding schedule either and they say to do that right away.

I wouldn't bother with the food thing. Bob has a wonderful diet! But do find out what his favourite is and try and use that

I've never used food really, except for flying across the room to me and stuff. Working with my birds of prey however is a different thing. That's all about food haha!

I get grumpy when I'm hungry and I figured Bob probably would to!
I'm going to try and introduce a training session earlier in the day.
I need to clean faster!

You could do what they do when training dogs. Instead of giving their whole meal just give half and then use the other half for training, that way they don't get fat from getting more food for use in training. :P

Yeah, thats what bird tricks do.
I just worry if the kids are sick and I have no time he'll go hungry.

If you're not doing training that day just give him his regular meals?

That's true... that would be inconvenient and not fair to the bird.
You could do training first thing in the morning if you have time, give him the food for training and then put the other half or amount into his food dish afterwards? :P
That way if you did have to go away for an emergency and needed to skip training int he morning you could just give him his food, and if there was a need to leave later in the day he would already have finished training and have his normal food in his cage already.
