I use to do what I called commando training. I use to have 6 trained budgies in line on the curtain rod. I would put a long training stick that I used near the first one & count 1 he would hop on & I would move along to the next budgie & count 2 & so on buy the time I counted 6 they would all be on the stick. Then I would put the stick back near the curtain & count off Again to 6. Once you train 1 bird a trick you get him to help teach the others. You do have to hand tame or better still hand rear for the best smartest trained birds. I often had up to 10 babies in training at a time.
