I haven't done clicker training, but Andrea has a lot of info posted about it... just do a search for it and you should find it easy.

I've always practiced restraint with my birds to make it easier for them when they go to their vet checks, but that's because I've been trained to do it... work w/ birds at my job often.... anyways, he learned to play dead bird from practice and because he trusts me.... I'm not sure how others have done it, but in a nut shell I got him used to being restrained so I could check nails, I would rub his belly and say dead birdy, and soon began to relax my grip, now I just position him, rub his stomach and say dead birdy, dead birdy, and he will stay like that for about 1 minute before he has had enough.
