Re: Green Cheek suddenly hates me

We just got home from the vet and getting his wings clipped. I never want to do that again, to either of us.

Re: Green Cheek suddenly hates me

GREAT ADVICE ABOVE!

I am an apologist for difficult birds, and for the Rickeybird (and myself). Even after all these years, I sometimes find myself putting myself or my bird down... stuff like...
I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THIS OR THAT.
WHY CAN'T HE BE SWEET AND NICE, LIKE OTHER BIRDS?
PEOPLE WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND WHY I PUT UP WITH THIS.
Stuff like that.
But the Rb is a parrot... one generation out of the wild.
I do all the right things, as much/well as I can, but in the end, I just LOVE my bird,
Some parrots are SO SWEET, some are NOT. I'm HAPPY and a bit JEALOUS of those successes.
I have lessened my psychological and physical wounds over the decades... not because I've changed the bird, but I have changed me. And a lot of that has involved giving up on a lot of my desires/expectations. After years of battle, I surrendered. I admit... as to why have I not (and why am I unable/unwilling) to train the Rb to do anything that he doesn't want to do?
Example... he is free-flighted... no time-out gonna happen there. He flies away.
Consequently, I have a Tazmanian Devil on my hands. I love him. I have no complaints, really. He's HIMSELF. And I'm MYSELF. And the result... check my Signature for videos. etc., if you like.
Over the years, I have been very embarassed/downhearted/sad about having a pet that was so... out of my control.
The most guiltifying thing is that, if I die before he does, what kind of maniac am I passing along, and what likelihood of success does he have? I'm still struggling weith that one.
But finally, I've accepted that I have an amazing half-wild being who loves me and perches on my hand and speaks to me! He sings, plays, cuddles NOW and then. He's a real character. It's magic enough.

TAKE ALL THE GEAT ADVICE, and you'll have some success. But in the end, just love your bird for who he is.
We'll stick with you!
