Re: Shasta bit me.....hard

In the past I would see that look and tell myself "no fear" and "I have to show him I am not afraid ".

I have learned my lesson, I don't take the chance even when it's just moving him 3 feet.

My strategy now is to wave a towel at him till he clamps on to it then carry him dangling from the towel to where-ever I need to put him. Wrapping him up in the towel is only for medicine and nail trimming.

cockatiel family :
Lucky (M pied)
Baby (M pied)
Pinky (F lutino) R.I.P.

Sunny mother (cinnamon)R.I,P.
Cheeky father (whitface)
Angel (eldest lutino F)
Mango (middle pearl F)
Popeye (male grey M)
