    Chicken bingo is always good. Reward the bird when he gets a bingo or a tictactoe and he'll learn. LOL
    Seriously, they learn quite well. One of my birds would stand at the door when she knew it was time for my DS to come home from school. One day he was late and she paced and looked and paced and looked until he came in the door. My other hen knows the word"porch" and will go on the porch when I tell her to.
