How strange that its posted them twice?? I think there's something wrong with the urls. It looks like its duplicated part of it. It took ages to load so it may have found an error along the way?

Hope the second video works now though? :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Awwwwww bless her heart!!  What are you giving her as a treat?  She obviously doesn't want it.  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:  If I was you, I'd just play with her until you can find out what she would like to eat.  So you can still do the touch stick, but as a treat, just praise her up lots.  When you find something that she likes to have as a treat, just give her a piece about half the size of a sunflower seed so that she eats it quickly and carries on with the training.

You'll get there, she's doing well.  Always end on a a high then she will want to do it again next time.

I was trying to give her a quarter of a grape Pat. She usually loves them!! She's a daft bird!!

Still, tomorrow is another day!!  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I will try a bit of sunflower seed tomorrow, she likes those.

Thanks Pat. You are a star!!

I tried with treat training for Thabo, he wasn't interested at all. He prefers praise. Toilet training him at the minute and every time he goes on paper out of the cage he looks up at you for praise bless him
