Advice for training/ enrichment activities

Hello parrot moms and dads,

With the new addition of a GCC to my flock, I need an arsenal of training and enrichment activities to do with my baby for 3-4 hours a day. Can anyone offer advice? We started yesterday with learning to step up with treat training. She is doing well so far and seems quite smart.
I'm yearning for more info to make her happy and stimulated.

Any suggestions are welcome!

Thanks!

Try clicker training!
There Is TONS of info online for it and my green cheek responded VERY well to it.
Try playing with your green cheeks toys as well.. You may look insane LOL but your bird will be grateful and will love bonding with you.

With mine, I used target training, they loved it! What would you like them to do? And what would you like to know?

I would like to train her NOT to poop on me lol! Also, recall to me. Once we get those two down, maybe some tricks, like turn around, shake hands and play dead.
At first I just don't want her bored.
