Yet another busy day, I left my mail in my tiny drawer and almost forgotten about it. Luckily I have Kacy, my Black Capped Conure to help me get my mail from my drawer.
Kacy is of a great help to me, and I am really happy that I have such great Personal Assistant!
Unfortunately, this scenario can never be possible in real life. With Kacy’s small petite built (merely 10 inches in length and weighs around 70 grams), she won’t be able to open a life-size drawer that is many times bigger than her.
Although Kacy can never possibly help me retrieve a mail from my drawer in real life, but this interesting parrot trick that I taught her has brought lots of fun and laughter to the family!
This parrot trick is actually a great example of a behavior chain which involves a series of behaviors linked together.
There are a few behaviors involved to make this parrot trick possible:
As Kacy is familiar with retrieval (also known as fetching), I only had to spend a few days training her on how to open the drawer.
After a week of parrot training, I was able to chain up all the behaviors together and got Kacy to perform the whole sequence.
Overall, Kacy did an awesome job. She really did it!
