I am wondering how do you train a bird to know what Millet is?

I have a feeling that Sketch is a bit afraid of the mllet treat and may not know what it is. I am wondering if theres a way you can train birds to like millet?

Also with hand training I know theres millet and the food method which is the best method to start off with first?

I appoligize in advanced with the 2 in one question.

Along with the 3rd question in the same one in advanced..

Also, will each different method work for any type of bird?


Sunny and snowy are taking well to the millet training method agian after waiting a few weeks after messing with there training slowly working with Sketch. Ziva originally shown no interest on being hand trained but, is now starting to be interested. I know pumpkins hand trained but, I'm re-teaching him so that each time he's out he won't shake. He even does shake when my hand or any other hand is in the cage.

Millet is suggested for people to use when training their birds because most birds do love millet, but that doesn't mean your restricted to only using millet when training your birds. Really, any treat will work. Pick something you know your bird will love (you've seen them obsess over it) and only ever give it to them when training them. Whether it's a certain seed, fruit or vegetable, as long as it's little and they like it, it should work. Birds are very curious, and they'll probably try many of the things you give them.

Pop it in the cage and watch how fast it goes haha. If they really like it it will be gone before you know it. I've never had a bird dislike it. If they do like it limit their food a tiddly bit so they're a tad hungry and get them to come onto you whilst you hold it for them
