So im just right now after starting the Wave Trick with Rocko its like he knew what the word meant already when I say wave and hold my finger near him he lifts his foot high up but I want him to do it without using my finger and just saying the word how can i do this or i want to wave with my hand for him to do it either one would be good I want to share his intelligence and show my friends how talented he is and this would be the first trick for rocko to ever learn so any ideas on how i can do it without using my finger I will practice moving my finger further away until finally i remove my finger will that work hes a smart bird and knows what he needs to do to earn his Treat he already steps up without getting rewarded but wave is a new trick so he looks around waiting for his treat lol

I think you have already made a huge progress with the wave trick if he moves his foot after your finger, wow, mine don't really do anything like that.

That's amazing! My 'tiel seems to only really know "come here" and "food". Mostly when they are used in the same sentence. :D
