In the early years of ABE, the Brelands experimented with the training of smaller animals such as birds and rodents.  However, their focus changed to larger animals in later years, as they expanded the number of species with which they worked.

Even so, bird acts like these continued to draw crowds at the IQ-Zoo, Animal Wonderland and internationally.  In the 1950s. Keller and Marian Breland were responsible for developing the "acts" that the trained birds on these pages are doing.
