I've been told several times that starting a "training journal" would be a good way to document all of his misbehaviors and try to retrain them when I know exactly what is causing them. So here's Cooper's training thread, and I hope having two separate journals (one here and one on my blog) will double the success rate! All of the Threads Already About Cooper Are Here: Cooper's Entire Story Behavior Retraining Advice A Comment About Cooper's Wacky Eating Behavior A Thread About Possible Cage Aggression Background Information: Cooper is a seven year old green cheek conure that I adopted off craigslist. (If you want to read the whole story it's the first link above.) All in all, he was in a subpar situation for far too long and developed some bad habits. The things we need to work on are (1) not screaming to get attention, (2) not biting, (3) learning how to self-entertain, (4) target training, (5) station training, and (6) learning to play with toys. I'll be updating this thread regularly as we either backslide or make progress, and I hope to make tons of progress in the next year. Wish us luck!
