3 Of The Best Parrots That Are Perfect to Train

April 25th, 2009

Parrots are the most beautiful birds with great coloured plumage, they make fantastic pets. They can enthrall us with song and talking. They live long years and have life spans of around sixty to a hundred year. So, you can be friends with them for the rest of your life. These are the best types of parrots to train. If you are interested in any other type then please get our parrot training newsletter and know it all.

African Grey

These parrots are medium sized and are usually of a greyish colour. Sometimes they have non standard colouring. This is a speaking parrot, it is the best for speech. They can speak a variety of words and can imitate any sound with equal dexterity. However it can never be guaranteed that the Grey you choose will talk no matter what. Sometimes a Grey will never talk or show any signs of talking though that is a fairly rare occurance. African grey parrots generally scream a lot if left with nothing to do so need lots of play time and toys to keep them happy. Once you make friends, a grey will be the most loyal pet you could ever hope for but do tend to favour one person. They say African grey parrots have the intelligence of up to a seven year old child and can also be just as naughty if you let them.

Conures are small sized parrots and have very big tails attached to their bodies. You can find them in many different colours and they are very smart. They are real clowns who love to mess about. They are also good at learning tricks and take up training effectively. They will be happy if you teach them to talk. The drawback is that they are best matched to owners who have lots of time to spend with them. This is because they need several hours of training every day to learn how to socialize, not bite the owner and correct behavioural defects. These birds can be made to control themselves if you train them from an early age.

 

Macaw

Macaws have been known to survive for more than fifty years and knowing this you should be ready for a long relationship with your macaw, it’s not just for Christmas or a on the whim purchase. Yes, this is the biggest parrot you can get. To ensure that the parrot is happy make sure you get a tall cage. If you want this parrot to be happy then you should let it out of its cage. These parrots have a strong beak and bites everytihng. Therefore they turn out to be great furniture destroyers though with the help of toys this can be completely stopped. They need a variety of toys that have to be alternated regularly so that they can be stimulated constantly.

Remember parrot training is important, never neglect your parrot or you could end up with parrot behaviour problems.
