Re: Buying a pair or single ?

Thanks westwood. I'll try your method.

I've got bit twice now not too badly but then it was MY fault as it is...

I try to avoid jerking my hand away but its instictive. i guess i'll learn.

The person I bought it from hadn't taught him anything and didnt let me hold the bird as it was very stressed after being taken out of its cage . (it hasnt been handled before... )

I am improving with him gradually; he still doesnt let me touch him tho and he is rather afraid of me...

Anyother advice on taming him ???

thanks
Samad

Re: Buying a pair or single ?

Congrat's on your new bird !!!!!
What bird did you get, and how old?
Have you named him yet?
Besides a new environment, everything is new and strange to him.
The cage, toys and a new guardian.
It takes a while for a bird to gain trust, which is vitally important.
By sitting in his cage he feels protected and secure.
Make no sudden movements or noise, they scare easily.
Leave the cage door open, sit nearby at just talk to him.
The more you interact with the bird, he will become accustomed to you and your voice.
Keep doing this daily, birds thrive on routine.
Don't attempt to take him out, when he feels more secure and trustworthy, he should start coming out, in his own time.
Give him treats daily, through the bars at first.
Leave a treat by the door of the cage.
Hopefully he will be inquisitive, start moving towards the door and taking the treat.
This process could take days, even weeks, preserver and be very patient.
Enjoy your new bird, they are so precious
Let us know how he's progressing
Good luck
Take care

Re: Buying a pair or single ?

I'm not sure which species he is but i'll put up his photo and hopefully one of you identify him. The seller said something about it being a "Pahadi Tota" (in hindi) translated as mountain parrot, so I guess it lives in higher altitiudes...

Beaky now goes upto his perch when i open the cage and just lets me brush my fingers lightly on his body so i guess he and i are doing quite well coz i only got him on friday

Thanks
Samad

Re: Buying a pair or single ?

As antoinette said, let the bird come to you. Any animal would rather investigate you than the otherway round. Patience is the key!
