Yes, the amazing Norman Barrett and his budgies.. I would love to be a fly on the wall and see how he trains, because he's been doing this for so long. It'd be old school methods, but very interesting nonetheless!

I agree! It would definitely be interesting to see how he trained his little ones. They are quite the talented little bunch!

Default Hi

Were older methods not maybe so ethical or just different. Those guys must be caged up permanently and not get out in a room of house etc.

The animal welfare investigators (and yes, I've read the reports, because circuses are required to have this checked) says that all the birds were very healthy according to the vet checks, the troupes live in converted aviary trailers with access to natural light and that they often go into Norman's trailer at night, so they do get out regularly.

I'd also add that there would have to be plenty of rehearsal in the big top.. Which is far better keeping than most budgies get.

Some traditional methods are not based solely in positive reinforcement - incorporating elements of negative reinforcement, negative punishment, force and reconcile methods in training. The divide between training methods is seen in many areas of training, and is really quite pronounced in the horse training world where it can get quite ugly!

I'd love to see how Norman does it, because the conditioning is so good - I would imagine it has a lot of positive reinforcement, but I could also imagine there would be some force and reconcile as well.

Default HI

Thanks for that. My view is that I think??? in some areas circuses are not always ethical decent with animals. Like boxing Kangaroos. Once dead get another.

Think animal circuses are less now anyway. There was one scandal in UK Mary Chipperfield.
