Articles all parrot owners should read...
« on: June 07, 2015, 09:04:21 PM »

So first before ownership, yet valuable for others too..

Learn the why, understand the zoo keeper mentality that's the main page article also here not pdf

Next dismiss myths some already have been in the above article.
Quite a few from here...

First height dominance is false.
Biting is unnatural.
Greys are socialised into 1 person birds or is that not socialised.
Terrible 2's don't exist.

So onto training firstly trust account easier to digest
Be aware of using a clicker badly

Exercise is very very important!

One final one very good concept in either trying to understand or have a second person working with a bird, also helps when your own balance is out related to trust account,  60-40 rule.

Hopefully people will find some useful things amongst the links. These articles have greatly assisted me in training my 2 so that they aren't one person birds and don't bite also helped greatly in stopping plucking.

Plucking is unnatural behaviour stress is the factor

Hopefully they'll help someone...
