Re: Help me please!! Taming.

I honestly hope you are not expecting miracles to happen within 2 hours.

It may take MONTHS for them to come around, for them to trust you, or even show interest in you.

My honest suggestion is that if you can't commit to your birds, perhaps try and find a home for them where they will be loved for who they are.

Re: Help me please!! Taming.

My money's on the journeyman, I think he'll be successful , with the coaching from here. Keep checking in man, use this site for inspiration and good thoughts. Talk to the birds, they understand a lot more then you think they do.

Re: Help me please!! Taming.

Good to hear journeyman. I do think that out of those species, the parent raised Rosella will have the most difficult time settling down in a home environment. Any of the grass parakeets (besides budgies) are pretty hard to tame even when hand raised. My mom has 2 species of Aussie grass parakeets and same thing, it took her a few YEARS to be able to have them step up. The Bourke's will step up to anyone but still prefers not being handled. The Princess keet will only step up to my mom for a brief moment to get to his cage. He is very wild as far as being touched, but he likes to come near me when I visit and talk and engage that way. This bird was handfed, but still even after years that is just the extent of his tameness. He IS tame, as in he doesn't freak out with humans, he just won't tolerate touching or getting too close to his body. With lots of consistency and time, you might get them all "a bit" tamer, but I wouldn't expect too much and I wouldn't get disappointed if they don't ever do exactly what you wish. I just told you about my mom's keets. She loves those boys and spoils them rotten and has ways of interacting with them even though they don't get on her and cuddle.

I believe that talking to them (like you would a dog or any animal) is beneficial. Even though we're a completely different species from birds, they still can sense vibes, emotion, and attempts at friendship from a different species of animal. Birds are incredibly intelligent too, and WILL pick up what your spoken words mean. 2 of my birds have learned commands without having to touch them. You'd be surprised with a little gentle consistency and talking to them, how birds will learn voice commands, especially along with hand gestures. When they do, either hand them a small treat, or if they won't take it, I've found that verbal praise is effective instead. Best of luck!

Re: Help me please!! Taming.

Taming birds take time and patience. If you don't have either try to find them a good home. I have two parakeets that are happy and always outside their cages, playing and what not. But they won't come to be because they are a bonded pair. But I'll tell you they come and look for me and chirp up a storm if they see me or hear my voice. If one of them needs my help I gently tell that bird to step up and it does and we exchange kisses. They don't want to come to me but when they're with me the kisses don't stop.

Keep us updated with the progress. Remember patience is key. And don't get upset or angry with yourself for not taming them. Your doing it now. Your birds will pick up on your feeling and it's just going to set you back in training.
