Post: greenwinged help
Posted by Jeff on 2/28/08
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 birdtricks.com 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.
