- Scarlet macaw named Boomer
Okay so my scarlet macaw is about 8 yrs old and i have had em for about 4 yrs now and i never really thought about training that much but he does wave with his foot and i taught him to turn around. Hes very smart and catches on to what i want him to do pretty quick but i want him to trust me. He doesn't completely trust me bc he May become aggressive if i dont have his favorite chew stick with me when i handle him. When he is on a perch or branch in the outside cage i can touch his beak and give him a kiss and pet his feathers above his beak but i have to be careful and watch his movements to make sure he will be okay and not attack. But i want to be able to hold him without the stick and the fear of being bitten without the stick. With the the stick i can almost do anything i want with him without getting bitten or attacked. Id just like to know a correct way to go about training him and gaining his trust completely.
