How do you train a kitten to be friends with an African Grey, 19 mo? I need an answer ASAP, pz, tx.

I have two quaker parrots. Yjeu are handicapped. On the sense of one of them wears a cervical collar. I was told he was hit by a car. So now he plunks his feathers out of his body, back legs, stomach and anywhere he can reach. He can rotate the collar around his neck, even though the collar is very secure. I do need to watch the collar to see if he bleeds, picking at his skin. One time, he was able to tear his skin at the hip area, My vet was wonderful, and sutured his skin. He limps like a pirate. Love him! Bruce Lee is his name. This fits him perfectly, Aggressive, laughs, talks all the time. and wants to be first when the food is coming. I do believe he is jealous! I hate it….He makes me laugh. My most favorite quaker is Beaker! I bought these two Quakers because of her. She is so sweet. Loving. Bit being with BL has been challenging for her. He steals, chases her, pulls her feathers and takes her food. I want to help her. Please help me to help her! Love my Quakers!!!

Interesting Chet. Especially after the email message on bird toys. Which brings me to this vid, I just seen through here on making bird toys (would love to order toys from you,,,,but just don t have funds to do that as much as would LOVE too) I’m wondering about the safety of like the straws, and plastic water bottles http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDDX9r_uixw&feature=player_embedded

My 6 year old Quaker, Buddy stays entertained from dawn to dark building with shish kebab sticks (points removed). Builds platforms into the sides of his cage, Once finished, climbs outside pulls them out and starts rebuilding. Got the idea when I read a Quaker is the only parrot that builds with sticks. He is so smart, has the mentality and vocabulary of a 3 or 4 year old. Sometime it is shocking as to his intelligence.

We found an african grey parrot almost dead in the park. After 10 days at the vet we now have him home and think he is about 30 years old. How do I get him to stop biting? How do I get him to let us touch him without using a glove> He isn’t aftraid of the glove and will step up the minute he sees it, but will bite our hands when he sees them. I can touch his beek, but he won’t allow us to touch him anywhere else. What do we do? He is a very loving happy talkative bird and loves to play the whistling game with use. He doesn’t seem to know how to play with toys. I’ll try the hide and seek game with him and see if that works.

Fantastic and Creative idea! MY Cockatiel will love this, regardless its size. HIS Sengal will destroy it (with fury) ….then go for MY juggler. Sold! I’ll take two of them!

Hi Chet. I’ve recently inherited a yellow naped amazon named Pancho. He is 21 yrs old and has spent much of his life in his cage. I ordered the parrot training kit and it has worked amazingly! But… in target training him, he seems to attack the wooden perch. I try to avoid him biting it, but in order for him to step up, I have to get it close to him. He still won’t step up without me having to force (entice) him to with another wooden perch. We’ve been working on this for about a week now… How can I get him to step up onto my hand and lose the fear?

This sounds like a great idea, but if I kept this toy in my B/G’s cage any longer than an hour, he would have the entire thing disassembled. His bird brain goes into a frenzy. BUT, the idea is great!

Thanks for that tip. I will try it with my conure, he is bored but yells if I hang a toy up in his cage and just attacks it.

Hi Chat Please can you tell me when you will becoming to Western Australia to perform and demonstrate the wonderful training techniques you have with birds. If you need a volunteer for your acts, i am sure my new parrot " Eco" would be happy to assist. I have been buying him baby toys, but the best toy he likes is a cheap fluffy little ball which i throw and he brings it back to me. Poor little thing he carn’t run fast enough for it. It is good exercise for him before he goes to bed. We play ball every night for 10 minutes. I will have to think of something else soon. Do you respond vie my email address, if not where.
