cockatiel Fly to me – training Pearl without a clicker

Category: Cockateil Training Videos

Teaching Pearl to trust me and fly to me without using a clicker. Only by using spray millet (the food im giving to her) as reinforsment. The point here is for her to want to come to me, insted of me to her. The more willing she is to come to me, the more trust she will gain on her own. *Its up to her to overcome the fear* It litearly took me the length of this video to get her flying to me. I have not trained with her since the last video where I did the trust exercise and got to pet her.

    yeh it is hard to train them and I do keep them together.. Pumpkin could care less if shes not there but secretly he kinda likes her around.. but its easier to train him
    Pearl on the other hand will try and find himso I have to seperate her if I want to train her and take her into another room while putting on loud music in pupkins room so they wont hear eachother lolll

    hi isabelaz,
    i posted in one of your other videos earlier. i just realised that you have two birds too. do you keep them separately or together in the same cage? i find it very hard to train one at a time as the moment one is out of the cage and i close it (thus separating them) they start calling for each other and definitely won’t pay attention to my training :p

Cockatiel Mutations: Pearl

pearl pied harlequin cockatiel

The pearl cockatiel is identified by its pearl markings which are usually found on the back, nape and wings. They have scallop-like feathers and have established the third mutation of the cockatiel species. It is significant to note that the pearl in their body is an effect of feather pattern changes, not a color change. The pearl cockatiel has many nicknames: the pearled cockatiel, laced cockatiel, pearly tiels, pearly cockatiel, pearl tiels and opaline cockatiel. The part of their body where the wings, nape and back feathers are edged or laced with the yellow or white color is called pearling. There are both deeply pearled and lightly pearled birds.

Cockatiel color mutations include: cinnamon, fallow, lutino, normal grey, pearl (opaline), pied, silver, whiteface (albino). Cockatiel color cross-mutations include: cinnamon-pearl, cinnamon-pearl-pied, cinnamon-pearl-whiteface, dominant silver-whiteface, lutino-whiteface (albino).
