Guidycat, shivering is not always a sign of nervousness, it could be an excitement too. It is a typical thing for greys to do, especially if it is the tummy feathers which shiver the most, so don't worry, he is probably just excited to see you but not 100% relaxed yet. Good luck with Greg Glendell, hope he will be able to help!

Thats comforting to know because i always assumed he was scared or nervous and theres me talking to him saying its ok im not here to hurt you bet he must thing shut up you daft cow  :rofl: :rofl:

 :hiya to the forum TAZ.
As your asking for this type of info May I advise you too read the different topics, such as Behavioural Issues, Training, Diet etc, there you will find lots of info.As retyping it all would take an age.   :thumbsup:

Hi TAZ, if he doesn't have feathers then he is a plucker. You would need to change his diet, let him out for at least 4 hours a day, and provide him with plenty of environmental enrichment, like toys, on a daily basis. Please take your time to read different sections of the forum as it is impossible to give you a short answer on the whole care of a parrot. Once you have straightened all the other areas of his life he will get tamer, that is for sure. Plus you can do additional training (how to you will also find on the forum)

Have just ordered Greg's book, it looks like the sort of thing that will be good to have at hand.
