    I have a b&G, and GW but never had experience with a
    Scarlet. Found an ad for a Scarlet on craigslist. What I
    found was a beautiful, biting macaw in a cage that's way
    to small with a family who took her in hoping to give her
    a better home, but without a clue on how to deal with a
    large, screaming, biting bird. Help, I need advice on how
    to rehabilitate this girl. I was told she is 2 years old,
    but they didn't even know her name. Where should I
    begin? I have been bitten hard several times, she's not
    kidding with her lunges. She says step up, but won't step
    up without taking a chunk out of you first. Came with a
    sunflower mix parrot food. Where do I begin. My other 2
    macaws are a joy, and I hope she can be also.
