How to Train your Parrot Roll Over Trick

This article is about how to teach your parrot to roll over. For this trick your parrot needs to be hand tame. Coco learned this trick in three training sessions. To begin with the roll over trick put your parrot on a table or on the floor.

Start by rolling over your parrot half the way with your right hand and complete the roll over with your left hand and then reward him. When your parrot gets used to this,  roll him only half the way with your right hand and reward with your left hand when he/she finishes the trick. With enough practice your parrot will roll over by himself. Then start to use a cue by pointing his left wing with your hand and saying "roll".


  1. Its not mean. Parrots need to be stimulated. They are smart and need to use their minds. Tricks are one way to do that.

  2. can't wait to try it with mine!
