    I put a line of tidbits across my gloved palm and as the bird does behaviors I open up more fingers starting with the pointer so they get a piece with each finger. I can usually get 3-5 reps with...

    I would not see any benefit to introducing a variable schedule of reinforcing and you will probably find it counterproductive. You can vary the reinforcer though, give different size pieces of...

    The clicker does give you time to deliver the reinforcer, it usually doesn't give you extra repetitions (animals' response to different CR is different). It marks the correct behavior, like taking...
