My Green-Winged Macaw has been with me just 6 months since adoption from the rescue but check out the progress she has made! She not only steps up but let’s me grab her, flip her over, open her wings, and put on a harness.

It doesn’t really matter if a parrot comes from a breeder, store, or rescue, with the right approach any parrot can be super friendly like my parrots. Learn about my approach to parrot training that leads to such fantastic results in my book, The Parrot Wizard’s Guide to Well-Behaved Parrots.

      The way he picks up his bird is NOT abuse. Clearly he loves his bird, and his bird loves him. The bird isn't in pain when he does that, she is FINE!

      How do you use a kind of reward system so he/she knows that they do a good job and you can start with a good base to train yourself and your bird

      My sister had a female eclectus and she attacks everyone but me. I’ve never shown fear with her and always talked to her and get her to come to me before I pet her or pick her up. She gave her up to my uncle (he already has an African grey) unfortunately I live in a very small house so hadn’t the room for her. Wish I did though so I could of worked with her. She has a sweet nature inside.
