I don't know who this person is but he/she does not know much if
anything about Greys, or even birds in general. No one who knows
anything would ever make such brash, unbending statements like
that, making it sound as if that's the gospel and applies to all
birds, of all types. Steer clear of uninformed statements like
this. That's the kind of BS that gets birds killed, hurt or even
rehomed because it doesn't work. Time, time, patience and more
patience is what is needed. If you reach your wit's end, you may
need to ask a behaviorist to come and observe your interactions
with Echo, get a first hand look at just what goes on, his
reactions, etc. and then can guide you from there as to what you
are doing right and what you may need to change.
