Aggressive Parrots


what about the animal Wanderers a while back I did and how to on how to get a smaller bird to step on your finger and stay safely perched well we had to follow up a question that I’d like to tackle them now the first one. See how you handle a larger Burleigh, cough and a second one was asking how do you handle an aggressive Amazon parrot I’ve had the exact same questions there are so many species of animals out there and within each species or discount with personalities it’s almost impossible for me to give advice without seeing the animals Behavior first so I’m going to do my best to get some general advice and ideas on certain situations first question was from hybrid Herbst you can read the full question here you can probably if you want to but the basic General concept how do I handle a larger bird so I would feel uncomfortable with one finger with a larger bird I would offer multiple fingers or Apollo up or my arm to stabilize their heavy weight and large feet did is similar to a small bird with a single finger perch you’re going to move slowly forward and approach your arm Palm fingers perch right even with their chest if you’re very comfortable with your large bird macaw coffee to go ahead and move that Purge all the way up to their chest if you’re still establishing a trust bond with that bird you want to present the perch and weight for them to show signs that they want to step onto the main sign of the bird wanting to step up is to raise our foot in the air and offer like this without painting of the eyes if it means course you may be with an open Beaker remove your part and try again in a moment remember you can’t make him a call do anything that they don’t want to do that I could just be grouchy but if you haven’t established at respond yet take a step back and work on your relationship building up feed them talk nice to them feed them trees to the bars and then when they’re out groom them through the bars and then when they’re out it could take time it’s a joy night about eight months to establish art respond delicious second question from laughing at the dark here’s the full text right here basically how do you work with an aggressive parrot that are bonded to you or aren’t very well socialized really difficult especially Amazon Parrots would have quite a spunky attitude laughing in the dark spirit I would not suggest putting my finger near that bird until you’re fairly confident he won’t bite the promise to creating a trust bond with associate degree aggressive Amazon it takes time it may take many years if ever this can be chongo and he’s a lilac topped

Amazon parrot lilac-crowned Amazon parrot and it took us about a year to create a trust bond enough that I was comfortable enough to pick him up and he was comfortable enough to stand comfortably on my hand and all the treats that he can eat this is r.j. he’s a blue-fronted Amazon parrot and we’re still working on our trust bond I use precautions when I work with him this is how I approach this situation

I would use a handheld stick to use at a purge so I keep my hands safe and then you always want to be able to offer them treats so I would use a spoon or you can go ahead and just put it in a bowl so I would show him the perch and we’ve already established this relationship already this so he would step up onto the porch and then you can use a spoon to give the treats so this allows you to stay safe allows you to make sure that he doesn’t get nervous if he does bite you and you can still work on establishing your relationship together he gets treats you work on stepping up win win situation as far as me and Archie have gone in our relationship so far is going quite well the next step is going to be me and moving my hand down the Persian getting closer to him now if at any point he does bite me do my best not to react don’t react to a bird bite by saying ouch or yelling or anything like that quickly and calmly remove yourself from the situation reacting to any behavior of your bird is going to increase the chance of it occurring again so you don’t want it to happen again remove yourself your attention any potential interesting or positive things remove that and the likelihood of that behavior happen again is going to decrease down laughing in the dark with your Amazon parrot try using the stick and the spoon make all your interactions positive good luck and now here’s just a couple more tips for tricky situations with birds my bird won’t come out of cage open the door let him come out on his own maybe he’ll come on top of his home maybe he’ll just come out on the top of the door the both are fine maybe even put a little ball on top but the treats in there and Tyson out that way for me if they’re running away mean you haven’t spent enough time on your trust bond with them take a step back make some more interactions with yourself positive lots of treats no pressure if they’re just playing games with you put your hand behind them and encourage them to come toward your finger my bird is biting me all the time citizens use their beak to explore and communicate so either they’re just trying to figure out what the hard thing is inside your finger or the try to tell you something listen are they nervous are they scared or something out the window that scaring them is your cat staring at them respond appropriately help them out listen to what they’re saying my bird won’t stay on my finger while either bored or they’re too nervous they’re bored give him something fun to do on your finger so nervous take a step back and reinvest in your trust bond my bird is scared of my hand start offering treats for the spoon or tweezers start establishing a positive relationship with your hand in your fingers and also get them onto the floor and offer flat back of the hand for them to step onto or even a finger from the floor bird only want to get to the highest perch so that’s a good way to start establishing your finger and the two most important thing you can do for your bird is to listen to what they’re telling you body language is key to their communication.
