I am finally getting my act together and getting back to training. Tonight was just testing to see where everybirdie was at. Maru is working on targeting. Pip is targeting for loop, max is still doing all the main tricks. Ziggy noped after waving and star is in need of some taming time.
Star and Max are allowed out of cage time together but are living seperate.
Nearly forgot it was a clicker training night...had a quiz to take before I could do anything.
Anyway update! (And expletives because new phone=new keyboard layout *mumblegrumblemumble*)
Max was following the target! And he is ok with the ball being in his face.
Star was just trust building.
Maru is targeting and responding better to my normal stick/tail pressure means of having them turn. He paused whenever I gave him a treat after as if he was trying to commit to memory what he did to get treat.
Ziggy was next and when he wasn't getting over stimulated and pretending to feed the perch he was targeting for the starts of loop.
Max is figuring out that if he targets the ball on the stick he gets a bonus treat!
Worked on stepping up without biting my hand with star. Yes. Broody hen is broody and only allowed supervised time with Max. I am considering putting her on short day vacation soon but then again it is that season for them.
Maru is doing better with the first part of turn around...just not doing a full turn around.
Ziggy waved and worked on loop.
Pip is also working on loop.
