Now that you’ve picked treats for you parrot, it’s time to begin clicker training. A clicker is just a very simple plastic box with a metal piece inside. It makes a click sound when you push the button. We use this as a tool to tell the parrot when it’s doing the right thing that we’re trying to teach it to do.

This is a very useful skill for teaching additional tricks. It’s not a must. You could teach your parrot to do tricks without a clicker. But it’s much easier with a clicker. It helps to note the time when the parrot’s doing the behavior that you want it to.

Also, it’s easier to reproduce with other people. If you want someone else to be able to handle your parrot, you’ll be able to let them use the clicker and receive the same results and benefits as you doing it yourself.

It’s very simple to teach the parrot what the clicker sound means. It means that a treat is coming. You just click the clicker and give it a treat. Whenever the parrot hears the sound of the clicker, it’s going to get a treat to follow. At first, you can click it at the same time as you’re giving treats. But, over time, you can click first and give the treat second.

Just remember, every time you click the clicker, even if you didn’t mean to, you’ve got to give a treat to the parrot so that it learns that clicker means treats are coming on their way.

Wings? Good boy.

Eventually, you’ll be able to use the clicker to mark the time the parrot does the right behavior.

Wave. Good boy.

As soon as he does the right thing I can click and give him a treat.

Wave. Good boy.

So, I’m going to be using a clicker throughout this series. Whenever the bird does the behavior I’m seeking, I click and give the treat. That’s how you clicker train a parrot.

    Wait, if you want the bird to do a trick LATER on, but you've used the clicker before….would the bird still do it without the clicker?

I'm picking up a blue crown conure today who has spent 5 yrs with 2 ladies who have taken great care of him , but claim not to be bird people , although they've done a great job with him , I know I will need to do some training , so any suggestions regarding treats will be great !

    You can actually perches a clicker for 2.00$ or less at your local pet store, I found them in the training section for dogs, and some pet stores give them out for free, They can also be found online (eBay or amazon).
