Haha, do you have problems of one bird learning one noise.. then repeating causing the others to learn it? always wondered this.

How comes he waited a couple of days before doing it? I would have thought it would be a fairly instant thing once he hears it?

He says Kira too now. Has picked up more noises/sounds in the last month than he has his whole life! :)

Jaime

Hello

I've read the last few posts back and something's stand out a little I have to say and I personally don't know Soo but I honestly cannot see where she has said she's the "perfect trainer" or you are mistreating your bird so that's a bit unfair, as for the main issue again only reading a few posts back you asked for help and advice for which you was given it by Several members and Soo included but again never did she ever say you was a bad person, from what I can see she was simply answering your concerns with advice and possible solutions,  I also don't think anyone has questioned you as an owner but please remember these are wild birds in captivity so cannot be trusted 100% around your face, you may know but these birds I believe have the power to take a finger clean off so you are risking serious injury to your face in allowing your bird that close, I don't personally believe there is ever such a thing as perfect parrot and I appreciate we may all think ours are but in reality they are not, you say your bird steps up on command well in truth Mamadou stepped up to me the day I got him from the breeder that doesn't make him the perfect parrot though Jaime, these birds are mighty intelligent but also need a lot of time spent on them In affect studying there every move if you like, and when there moods change why has it changed and in almost every case there is a reason for it, you then have to find that reason and correct it which is what you have got to do now with this issue.

 Jamie among the people who have answered your post at least 3 of em have had the best side of 5 yrs each  on this forum :secret:
 . Those people been Soo ,Mandi & me .
 Over that time between us we must  have answered 1000s of posts & tried to advise people for the best . We don't go out to attack people  :nono: But theres many a time the mistakes we see people making we have done the same in the past  & believe me Jamie ive made loads of mistakes .
We also get people come on here to ask for advice & we give it freely .
 A lot of em get what they want to know  then don't bother coming back on again after we have put time & effort into it  :rant:
Or they  don't like what advice we give so don't bother coming back on again once again after we have put time & effort in . :rant:
You haven't done either of these things :nono: so we are all trying to help you the best we can  but with parrots its all down to patience coz nothing is a quick fix with parrots :nono:.
 By the way Jamie weve had Tim 27yrs & were still learning with her .

I know what you mean but just felt like it was digs at me saying basically I was more interested in shutting him up than seeing what is wrong with him (aka, wanting to make me happy and not caring whats up with him)

I have to arrange it, I'm thinking thursday just have to see if the dates good for them.

going to be fun, Bman has never met another bird. Was removed from parents as soon as he opened eyes and was hand reared an only bird!

could go really well, or really bad! fingers crossed

I'd be interested in how yvie reacted to another large bird, she's got 4 smaller ones who live in the room with us but she just tells them off

Firstly I don't need anyone to apologise on my behalf because I have done nor said absolutely nothing wrong other than to state the facts you gave!!

I've had people message me today stating that what I said needed to be said!! FACT!!

You have basically made  :quote: statements :quote: accusing me of implying or stating things I have never ever said or implied, so for that you are completely out of line!!

Let me make myself very clear, if you ever accuse me, or another member of this forum of complete untruths again. I will remove you from the forum!

My birds are trained to step up and recall providing they are willing, other than that I do not believe in training birds! That's not to say it is a bad thing, or that it doesn't work for owners, I just choose not to do it.
