It'll take time and patience, but judging from the tenor of your posts I'd wager you have a healthy dose of both.

And don't underestimate the power of shameless bribery! You want him to start associating you with treats and fun times.

Re: Need Advice Macaw With Anger Issues

I'm glad to hear progress is being made! Pictures when you can!

Food for thought: To be honest, I truly believe you'd be perfectly fine if you bypass working with him at the house and simply just take him home with you. Very few rehomed birds have adjustment periods as you're doing and they thrive.

Re: Need Advice Macaw With Anger Issues

I think if anything it would actually be better for the bird to get them home as soon as you can. It means less time in the situation, even if only a few days you then know that they're safe and away from the neglect
