    Hey! I want to deeply apologize for the late replies. But I have A LOT of video request for that and other videos so that is at the tip top of my list along with dog training videos :). Sorry if it takes a while to get up I’m just super busy.

    Thank you! That’s an awesome question! Well first when he bites it’s not really biting its actually using his mouth as leverage when getting ready to step up. I’m not sure why he was doing it here but you are more than correct about rewarding him for both the bad and good! If he’s still doing this now I really don’t know because I’ve been SO BUSY that I don’t even have time to train him anymore. Hopefully ill start soon again! Thank you though! 😀

    Hi, great video but wouldn’t you be rewarding him for trying to bite your finger too? every time you say wave and put your finger by him he tries to bite, as well as wave, but you’re saying good boy to both the biting and waving. I’m just wondering if he’s still doing that.

    Also bringing all of your current birds in their cage by the window might help of course leave it closed so that the others don’t escape but it may help for him to see some friends.

    First off you have my sympathy and you must remain calm. You should probably get a net like a huge fish net and try to catch him. Dont try to grab with your hand because he’ll most likely fly away. The bird will probably get tired and land rapidly and then you can catch him. Also if you can’t catch him please call your local fire department and have them get him down. I hope you get him down. 🙂

    I think cockatiels still have a “dominant” foot but it’s harder to tell. It should be the foot they step up with first. Pay attention to yours and see if there is a usual preference. This may affect which foot to wave or which direction to turn around.

    loo but that is a really good point but sadly cockatiels don’t eat with their feet butfor other parrots what you are saying definetly applies. I was informed a bit about this but not enough to state it in my video thanks for the comment.

    Just wanted to point out that it has nothing to do with what “handed” you are but what “footed” your parrot is. Since most parrots (bigger than cockatiel) will eat/play with one foot, it’s best to teach them to wave with the other foot. It doesn’t look as nice when a parrot waves with its right foot and then eats with its right foot (and poor exercise as well). So watch to find out which is your parrot’s dominant foot and then use the hand closer to it when facing the bird to make it it up.

    Yeah, my birds are tame enough to fly to my hand, but weirdly sometimes nip my finger aggressively when I try and pick them up.

    yea its going to be Rowen’s first real trick. He’s still learning though. you can start this when the step up is perfected.
