Parrot Learns to Step Up for Me - Rachel Blue and Gold Macaw

Published on September 15, 2014

http://TrainedParrot.com/Pos_Reinforc...

Rachel the Blue and Gold Macaw learns to step up for me. This is a video from a while back but it very clearly illustrates the process of using positive reinforcement to teach a parrot to step up by itself.

You might notice how much I don't care. This is actually intentional and part of the process that leads to success. I allowed the bird to come and go at her own pace and get comfortable stepping up on her own terms. I did not impose or make it step up. I made the situation such that the parrot just really wanted to get to the treats so she had to figure out how to step up on her own anyway.

Rachel is a young bird and not particularly aggressive. However, she was developing a habit of biting people to avoid having to step up and she did not want to step up for me either. That's why I did what you see in this video to get her comfortable. Later when Rachel was boarding with me, I had no trouble having her step up for me or my brother because of the process we had already done.
