    5-15´╗┐ minutes is a good starting point. Less for birds that can’t pay attention that long. Over time, challenge the bird to focus for longer to teach better behavior.

    So funny that your other bird off to the side is paying attention, waving like crazy and getting nothing for the effort. Wouldn’t it be best to remove him from the area when doing 1:1 training so that the other one doesn’t feel as if he’s working without´╗┐ a reward?

    Towards the end of the video the smaller bird dropped his food and tried to take the bigger birds food. The bigger bird chirped at him to back´╗┐ off. So funny and cute. Good job on teaching the trick.

    Ignore only. Don’t try any other kind of punishment. Make sure your bird´╗┐ wants to do the trick and wants the treats.

    I have the same kind of parrot as you (senegal parrot) and I have taught mine this trick too.

    When I give the command, he often waves´╗┐ back at me like he is supposed to. However, he doesn’t ALWAYS wave back at me. He only does it when he feels like getting a reward. Sometimes he is just lazy and ignores the “wave” command.

    How do I respond when he “failed” to do the trick? Ignore it? Or some kind of “punishment” (back in the cage) ?

    He does it a few times but gets tired of it fast.

    Parrots catch on to visual cues very easily. It’s no big deal to get the parrot to do tricks with simply visual cues. Teaching them to do it from the word is the tough part. So if the parrot can learn the trick and catch onto the visual cue in 3 days,´╗┐ it may easily take weeks to learn that verbal cue and differentiate it from other verbal cues. So I put big emphasis on teaching the verbal cue from as early on as possible to give the parrot more time to catch onto it.

    The video shows about half to a third of the actual training. Plus there is down time in the process. The video is stretched across multiple sessions. So in reality each session was about 10-20 minutes. That does not necessarily mean I encourage your sessions to be that long. Your parrot has to build stamina for training. You may only be able to do a few minutes at a time at first. Kili can go on´╗┐ over an hour.
