Default Jimmy wont be joining the NBA anytime soon

Teaching Jimmy how to use his basketball and bless him he is more interested in chewing the hoop and tapping the ball, looks like Jimmy being in the NBA will have to wait a bit longer Jimmy wont be giving up on his dream yet

Even though Jimmy is not shooting hoops yet, it's good that he is already playing with his new toy. Maybe if he sees you placing the ball onto the basket, he will take it out and through practice will realize to put it back in.

We have that same play gym. My guys prefer doing the rings rather than playing basketball. They are getting quite acrobatic flipping themselves through them.

Have you tried clicker training? If you wanted to encourage Jimmy to play basketball I would try doing it with clicker training. First condition him to the clicker, click offer treat. Then everytime he touched the ball, click offer treat. Making sure the click occurs when he is touching the ball. Initially you offer treat immediately upon the click but when then get good at it the treat can be offered after a slight delay. And so the process grows as you chain together each stage of the whole trick.

You are welcome. Wiki (AnnMaire) is the bird clicker guru on TB, though I do use clicker training for my dogs. It is a great, easy use system once you get the hang of it.

Here is a link to Karen Pryor site, she is the clicker trainer guru. There is some great info on her site. Karen Pryor Clicker Training | The Leader in Positive Reinforcement Training

That's very cute!

It's too bad you missed the October 2014 Budgie of the Month (BOTM) contest.
