    Just Can't Tame Him

    Hello everyone. I have been the owner of my green IRN Chief for about 6 months now and I just don't know what to do anymore. I'm finding him impossible to tame in any way. If I try target training, he flees the stick, if I feed him treats, he snatches them and runs off to his corner; he used...

    Need advice on jealous and attacking indian ringneck!

    We have had our, presumably male, IRN for over 3 and a half years. He was rescued from an dirty house that was overcrowded with many birds. When we rescued him we were told he was 6 months old. After all this time, he has yet to get his ring - making me believe he might in fact be a she...
