I can NOT thank you all enough for your responses!!! You are
WAY more helpful than the guy the bird was purchased from and
I GREATLY APPRECIATE the help!!! I am going to take my time
with her and hopefully she will learn to love and trust me
like my other birds. I hold my other birds in front of her
cage and show her that they feel safe with me and that I am
not going to hurt her. I am so used to getting a bird that
is "tame" and it taking a day to adjust but being fine after a
day or two because it so desperately wants human interaction.
I guess the macaws are different. I was also very worried
about if I left her in her cage too long she would become
wilder still. Any and all suggestions are so appreciated.
