Target training is an extremely helpful behavior when training birds because it can guide your bird without force. Target training is simply teaching your bird to follow and touch a target object, usually a chopstick, and then using the stick to train tricks like spin, recall, and tunnel. It can also be an effective tool in taming a bird that has not been taught to step up yet.
Spin is an easy first trick to train birds not used to doing tricks. All they need to do is follow the target stick, and it makes for an entertaining bonding experience between you and your parrot!
