How to determine a parrot's favourite treat???

Post by AlphaWolf » Sat Aug 30, 2014 1:14 pm

Hello everyone,
So I would like to know what is the best approach in determining my Aero's favourite treat. The reason why I ask this is that I normally slide pieces of fruit through the cage bars into his perch. He also doesnt take his treats till like 10-20 minutes later, Any ideas???

Put all the treats on a plate and the one Aero goes for first is the favourite just to make sure do it again but with the favoured treat a the back or far side of the plate.

AJPeter has a good point. IRN's are incredibly food driven and will invariably eat the tastiest morsel/treat first. Think of a kid in a candy-store: chances are the kid will leave the store with his favorite candy 9 times out of 10.

Do be warned that today's favorite might be tomorrow's trash, but if you follow the strategy AJPeter suggested you should discover a "all-seasons" favorite.
