I’ve been target training Willie I don’t train him every day. I use a chopstick as the target but I lost his usual one and decided to get another one when I went to a Chinese buffet on Christmas Day. The new one is much longer but I didn’t think it mattered. I began to target train him last night with the new chopstick. As I slowly showed it to him it scared him! He jumped straight up in the air and came back down on his cage but he became catatonic! For around ten minutes his body was thin and his eyes were closed for a long while. At first he struggled to keep them open then they stayed shut! I could see that his eyes underneath his lids were bolging! All this was happening while I was crying and calling his name with no response! It just seemed like he totally shut down! I managed to pick him up and place him on my shoulder as I sat in my chair and still no reaction and I kept crying and speaking softly to him. After about five more minutes he started coming out of it and back to his old self again. He is now the same perky little guy with no problems what so ever! I was afraid the bout he had would happen again during the night but he was perfectly fine! So, does anyone know what happened to him??
