Repetition is the key to teach birds to speak.¬†Repeated the words to help the birds are familiar with.¬†Here's a hint: Do not use tape recorders, CD or VCR!
Why?¬†First of all, this is a lazy way, and the other is unfair to the birds.¬†At the same time, these tools will not have much effect.¬†Let's find out why.
The use of tape recorders, CD or VCR is essentially directed at the bird to speak.Yes, it is repeating the same sound, but not conducive to the birds and talk to you.Recording equipment is nothing more than noise, I'm sure your birds soon hate to hear these recordings.
Imagine your child to school, the teacher whether the greeting will be a tape recorder on the podium turned to leave?¬†No!¬†The teacher is to stand in front of his teaching, and try to attract students' attention.¬†You also need to be treated your bird.Simply play back a tape in the recorder, or play a CD, video can not be caused by the interest and attention of the birds.¬†If they turned off the tape recorder or CD, Han also failed to learn.
This method is there a downside is that if the birds follow the recorder learned a word or sentence, you can not immediately reward it.¬†Reward the birds learn new words too important, but to be applied to test birds that at that time, unless you also room you can use recording equipment.¬†But if you can be in the room and the birds a dialogue also with those who do it?
Is not recommended CD of this method, one of the reasons is unable to communicate with parrots, can only teach sound and meaning can not be passed on.
Such as tape recorders taught the bird to say "handsome" when you first heard the bird say, wow, good surprise.¬†But the recorder did not teach the birds what occasion, said "handsome", so the birds would like to say it 452 times a day I feel very good, because so many number of tips from the recorder.¬†Do you have Masaoki every day to hear a word is repeated up to 452 times?¬†Are you willing to teach your bird to talk to you with the right words?¬†I think so.
Repeated reversed to teach birds to speak is very important, where to start?Simple words or phrases.¬†To select from your address to start as if nothing wrong, you never tired of words or phrases such as auspicious.
"Good morning", "Hello", "handsome" or something simple start.¬†To attract the attention of the birds to determine there is looked straight and neat, clearly that to teach their.¬†If you are a big tongue, they are certainly a big tongue.
Speak of teaching birds to be adjusted relative to each other position is good, or squat in front of it (for example, in a cage), or allow them to stand on your hand or arm to raise the birds makes it possible to face to face.
Do not let your bird to stand on the shoulders, or to teach it when it is above your head.¬†This will bring you and the bird who is the "boss".
Remember that each of the training time is shorter, because you are dealing with a child, oh yes, is a parrot them every attention span is very limited.¬†You can not be a year-old children into the classroom of a junior high school, count on him every time the attention of more than five minutes, also suitable for parrots.¬†Each course is about 5-10 minutes, one has been adapted to study birds, not more than 15 minutes.¬†More are forced.
Your expectation was not realistic, do not expect the bird to be able to start immediately repeat words or phrases.¬†If they do, it's too great, but do not bet.¬†Your bird through several training courses you feel.
Advice on the choice of words
Teaching the parrot to speak, the choice of words need to be very careful.¬†Many masters to teach their birds swearing in order to please family and friends.¬†Performing old-fashioned, the situation is embarrassing, and the birds lost their homes because the foul language.
Remember the long life of these birds, 40 -60 years.¬†Unless you intend to life families to support it, teach it bad language does not matter, otherwise it will be transferred to other family life.¬†Took over as the master may not have your sense of humor, or can tolerate bad language.
Saying the same as little as possible also to teach, because their life for a long time.¬†I'm sure a lot of Lao Yingwu still repeat these words: "Kung Hei Fat Choi!", But in today's society this sentence would be too earth.
To make use of those common, enduring words.
Your tone of voice and change the sound to teach birds to speak is very important.Do not use a monotonous tone of teaching birds.¬†Because your daily mood changes a lot, so why use a monotonous tone to teach them to speak it?
Talking all the time the use of tone (the tone of the circumflex accent different, and the talk time of excitement) is not only the birds feel interesting, and they learn to use will make you feel delighted.¬†For example, you unlock the shrouded morning, said: "Good morning!" Or "Good morning" to emphasize the morning, morning and greetings linked.Also when you sleep at night, said: "Good night!" Versus "Good night!"
If they give you repeat a statement, they should be commended.¬†Otherwise, they also know what they are doing what you want them to do it?
When the parrot to say a word or try to say, you have to be very excited!¬†And they say "good boy!", Which makes a very surprising way, and pruritus its head.¬†Reward good, but do not a habit, otherwise they are the future only to get food before they agree to speak.
The parrot is like just like a child to be commended on the high spirits.¬†They like attention, so they give them to actively promote the better.¬†Many types of parrots learn new things, especially love to praise, even complacent.¬†Importance they attached to find the interaction with you once they find conversation to achieve the aspirations of shortcuts so they put into practice.
Association of words
This is another one to teach the parrot to speak, teach them the words and the specific acts or objects linked.
For example, the morning you uncover shrouded when facing the little guy said: "Good morning!" Sooner or later it will, "Good morning" and the shadow has been lifted linked, so it will answer you when you opened.¬†This bird is very common, when they want to cancel shrouded will say to you: "Good morning!"
A lead they are words related interest is to pick up the words with their favorite things, such as eat, drink.¬†Each one of my friends feed her parrot food when the total, said: "delicious.", So the parrot eat before repeating: "delicious." Or you at feeding time, said: "ah, I really like¬†! "and then the nose Cengceng it also issued a kissing movement.Note that this is very different to talk to it when the food reward, this is teaching them specific occasions with the appropriate word.
When you will be the birds out of the cage can say: "You want out?" Sort of questioning, but with rising intonation at the end of the sentence.¬†Answer for them and then use a positive tone: "I want out." If every time so that when they came out to do, they will be these words and came out.¬†So when you ask:
"You want out?" They immediately replied: "I want out."
Also applies to leisure time.¬†If every time you start and parrots play, said: "want to play?" They will this phrase and play with you to tide over the Happy Hour linked.
Once they learn a word or phrase, you can add new words to continue on this basis.¬†"Want to play?" Into "play ball?", Your hand is pick up a ball.¬†The parrot will be new words to be linked with the objects in your hands.
And then continue to increase the vocabulary: "want to play ball?" (If they can "ball" by adding a sentence) into your ball? "Then you can play games with it, first to hide the ball, and then¬†seriously looking for it, while looking for the side of the parrot said: "ball in your cage?" ball in the water? "on the floor it?"
Whenever the bird to repeat the word correctly, immediately appreciate it!¬†Let them know that this is the result you want.
Now let's talk about some of the mess of words and sound on the parrot inadvertently Society.¬†Parrots imitate is very strong, good at talking.¬†But they would sporadically learn from ambient sound, the sound is you do not want them to hear.¬†For example, some pet owners to reflect their bird would say the phone rings: "Hello.", Or the doorbell rings said: "Come." This is always been good, because after all, they use words fairly¬†not bad.¬†But if they mimic the sound of the alarm clock or cell phone ring tones, or you with the voice of the partnership debate, then miserable.
How to stop this behavior?¬†The answer is: can not be banned, unless you live in the mountains of the temple, away from the Red monk to become a monk.¬†If so, you can no longer feeding parrots a¬†So any environment, there will be background noise.¬†Your task is to try to shield the noise, but to recognize that you will not be 100% successful.
When the birds learn to one is enough to make you crazy words, you need to do is let him know those words you do not want to hear.¬†By a mild constraint and negative association means to rectify.¬†Discussed below, we generally talk about the noise, screaming problem with a particular focus to talk about.
There is a message here you might think that the news: the parrot is very noisy!¬†I bet there are things you do not know!
Let us look at the reasons.¬†The wild scream of the parrot is a very natural, very effective means of communication.¬†The other members of the call population in order to attract companions, or when a warning danger coming, cries of the birds in the tropical rainforest to be available for a few miles away.¬†If they whispered not.
Both domesticated and even hand reared parrot tear sound exhaustive shouting is their instinct.¬†They can not be trained to be deterred in the living room of a home, sometimes the product port tea, very polite conversation.
Remember that if your bird is very talkative, it means that it is love screaming.¬†If their noise level is difficult to tolerate, not that they deliberately want to drive you crazy, but their in the wild is to talk to each other's.
Screamed the social part of the means is also a bird in the wild, male birds in order to attract the female child, then cry with the greatest volume.¬†Feeding parrots history to understand that the bird has been chatter on it in the entertain a lot of time also show the tail to start mydriasis.
Extreme patience and behavior modification can make you reach a consensus on the acceptable noise level.
Restrain your pet
Never fight a parrot.¬†I will reiterate it again, because this is too important!¬†Never fight a parrot!
First of all, they may not understand why you fight them.¬†Bone hollow in the second parrot very vulnerable to injuries.
If the parrot to do something to make you angry angry to want to play it, please calm down, put it back in the cage and walk away until you are completely cool down.Imagine you even angry and terrible nor will your child start, so there is no reason to fight bird.
Of course, does not mean that the parrots incomprehensible behavior of laissez-faire, so let's look at what to do to correct their bad behavior, or they scream down to an acceptable range.
Many times owners are not intentionally using rewards to reinforce bad behavior.Let me explain.¬†If you're in a room, parrots in another room is howling in the dead man shouted live like sound, are you going to do right are: 1)
Directed at the bird shouted allowed to shut up; 2) ran over and handed it delicious to make it shut up, his mouth full of food it is no empty call.
Either deal with the situation are wrong, because you are teaching it are two very important courses:
1) If the birds are loud shout it to get information is: If I cried, my partner will respond.
2) If you ran over handed him the food, it gets the message is: If I cried, I had delicious.
In both cases the result is that your behavior is screaming intensified to encourage birds.¬†This is actively reinforced the bad behavior of the birds.
Here is a step in the right:
Firm command - "Do not call" or "Do not bite" (or for other bad behavior).¬†If the bird in your hand or arm, and its face to face with a firm and clear tone of voice to tell it: "No!" If they are in a cage, you leaned over to convey the command was at its height.¬†You do not need to cry, that can be firm and clear.
Note: If the bird in the cage Chiang Kai-shek to do bad things, do not put it out of lessons, otherwise they will do that sort of thing and came out, but to encourage this behavior.
2) continue to command - slightly raised voice repeat the command again.¬†Let the birds understand what you say about it, understand their misconduct.¬†At this point the sound to be tough, but do not shout.
Shift - I mean, if they are outside the cage and put them back.¬†If they are in the game venue, went back to the cage to go.¬†If they are already in a cage, then covered with cover.¬†Shift when repeated commands.¬†(The key here is to be resolute in action.)
The convergence of bad behavior to reward - and it must pay attention to bad behavior to stop, whether it is a scream, or bite or other else, immediately will put the parrot came out, or removed enveloped.¬†So as long as they know how to stop the behavior they are good.¬†Must be timely, otherwise stop shouting after 5 minutes to release them, they will feel confused I do not know what to put them out.
5) reward - bad behavior to stop, do not forget to reward the parrot.
Reason before you can understand the cause of bad behavior (screaming) to stop it.
For example, if the bird was just about to eat when you are seated screaming, because the parrot socially gregarious feeding habits, and of course, hope to dine with you as your population partners.¬†So before you give it a dish of food.
Or parrot in your shower when the shouting.¬†You shower wet to the birds, you shower it can alone where dressing.
Sometimes bad behavior is over-reliance on your result.¬†If you pick up the phone and it called upon, it is because it is jealous of you to speak with other people, it is too dependent on you.¬†There are two ways to overcome this bad habit.¬†First, in accordance with the above method to restrain the development of the bird with the other members of the family relationship, make it understand that you are a member of this "population".
Do not forget your stress limits, including parrots.¬†The mating season of birds naturally manifested more aggressive, hormone secretion enhanced, more neurotic and brutal temper.¬†You will have a few days because of work, family, children, and many other factors cause increased pressure.¬†Your pressure exceeds acceptable limits to remain calm, do not overreact.
Let me recall¬†a few key points¬†about¬†your bird¬†speak:
* Select¬†the¬†most likely to¬†speak¬†birds¬†-¬†the¬†age and¬†type¬†also need to consider
* Provide¬†suitable¬†for¬†rearing¬†family environment
*¬†Time¬†to¬†train¬†a bird¬†- Do not buy¬†a pair of¬†birds,¬†and¬†at the same time¬†teach¬†them¬†two
* To maintain¬†the status of¬†the¬†birds are¬†happy to¬†speak¬†short¬†training time¬†and¬†the election
*¬†The beginning¬†of the¬†word¬†is basically¬†in the "muttering"
* Repetition¬†is the key¬†-¬†to repeat¬†words and phrases¬†to teach¬†to¬†the birds, the¬†slow accumulation¬†of¬†their¬†vocabulary
* Do not allow¬†the¬†bird¬†on his shoulder¬†-¬†you need to¬†meet¬†face¬†to¬†face
*¬†Use a variety of¬†tone and intonation
*¬†To make use of¬†our¬†appreciation
If you can¬†follow¬†these¬†points,¬†I can assure you¬†that¬†your¬†bird¬†can¬†speak¬†in¬†two¬†months !
