    Ok, I will start by saying I have not owned a bird, but
    have thought about it many times and read many books on
    training and caring. A friend of mine was given a large
    greenwinged macaw by someone and has found out quickly
    that she can not care for it. I believe he is already at
    sexually maturity but do not have him yet so am not sure
    about his age as she has not taken him to an avian vet
    yet. He seems to like me more then others as he will "up"
    on my arm from his cage at times. Other times though he
    will nip when I am near the cage. He is just very
    untrained at this point.I am wondering if I should make
    this my first bird or not? Also, are there videos to help
    with visual techniques that you all recomend. I have
    thought about the videos but have heard
    they use food deprivation training which I will not use.
    My parents took away fun stuff when I was bad, never food
    and I am not willing to do that Thanks for any advice you
    all can givew.
