These are in chronological order so scroll down for the latest videos!

Kiwi’s first Grape

“Football” Training

Turn down the volume there are lots of loads screams!

I hadn’t quite appreciated how her “football” skills are coming on. Her new training involves taking out her screwdriver and passing it to me. We’ve got as far as lifting it up, but then it gets thrown on the floor. Maybe we should stick to beakball!

Kiwi’s Football Training is really coming on

“Football” Transfer Window.

During lockdown I spent a proportion of my time training Kiwi the parotlet. For a 1/3 of a sunflower seed I think she plays quite well. Ill try to find an original one where she was less predictable.

Compilation

Including Kiwi’s first Christmas, she shows how much mischief she can cause when she eats through Christmas presents, eats Mr Physics’ shirt collars and starts eating the pieces of the Christmas game “Photosynthesis”. Finally she gets into real trouble when she eats through the homework!

March 2021

Teaching Kiwi to skateboard. She received a skateboard for Christmas but wouldn’t go near it, but with lots of tiny pieces of sunflower seed and patience we’re getting there! Keep an eye out for improvements

I’d like to train Kiwi to enjoy the skateboard Santa got her for Christmas. Initially she wouldn’t go anywhere near it. I then got her close to it by covering it in a yellow postit note and finally with lots of coaxing she will sit on it, although still not confident. She hates the ruler more so I must borrow one of the ramps from work!

April 2021

Kiwi has a bit of a thing about trying to get in my cup of tea. I decided to let her in, so cleaned the cup and watched!

17th April 2021 Kiwi exercising for treats first thing in the morning.

I still need a good video of Kiwi demanding the radio be switched on/off or the channel changed. You don’t believe me do you? Well I’ll get on eventually.
