Eye pinning to other people not owner
My Indian ring-neck parakeet 'Ernie' pins his eyes in excitement for things like a small bell that he pushes around on the carpet, and at his reflection in mirrors. He also does it to a few of my friends.
This is my query, he does it to my friends, but not to my brother and myself. I would loooove to know if there is a way to get him to do it to us, as I have read that at the point of pinning,they are most likely to learn new things. When he pins its usually at the faces of my friends when he goes in to kiss them. He pins and clucks, whilst opening his wings a little behind him.
