You've got to see it to believe it!
Whenever there's a group ready to watch and learn, the parrots at Parrots in Paradise are ready put on a show. Here our Asiatic Parrots are trained to perform tricks!
Being highly intelligent, birds love to perform. Everything we teach them is an extension of their natural behaviour, so they're never doing anything they don't want to. For them tricks are a form of mental stimulation and play.
To train parrots that are happy to perform we use positive reinforcement, rewarding them with praise and treats after a trick. Our parrots are never punished when they do not perform.
Knowing the birds are having a ball is great fun for the young and old. The bird's ability to solve puzzles and evidence of cognitive thought has to be seen to be believed.
