Hi all. We are thinking about taking on a handreared lovebird. Have researched as much as possible and have found that most resources say they can be very aggressive to other birds. I have been told that they need to come out of their cages at seperate times to other birds and can be a bit nasty to other birds.&160;Can any of you share your experiences with lovebirds Do you have some that come out with other birds&160; Are they really like the pirahnas of the parrot family!! Would love to ...

5 Replies and 1668 Views Bereavement  1668  5 Started by  seadreamer Hello, I have a male cockatiel who is about 11-12 years old. He has recently lost his companion, an elderly female. They were not a pair. They were both rescues, but she was the outgoing one and he tended to copy and draw courage from her, as she was very human-orientated and he wasn't.&160;He was a cruelty case and has always been very nervous, but with time learnt to come onto the hand and out of the aviary - we have an indoor aviary some 8 x 3 feet and 6 feet high with lots of stimulus and ...

0 Replies and 2145 Views Part III: Introducing the Harness to Your Parrot    2145  0 Started by  Rick OK, so you've been through all of the steps in Part I: Touching and Handling your Parrot, made your decision about which harness is best for you and your parrot, and you've got it in its box in front of you. First, don't go anywhere near your bird with the harness until you've read this, and please don't just grab your bird and force on a harness as this will completely traumatise him! Even if you can touch and handle your parrot, you need to introduce the harness slowly and carefully, using...

She has a very full, rich life in that respect and simply loves going out everywhere with us! I believe that training your parrot to wear a harness provides the perfect compromise between the safety of clipping your bird's wings and the risk of free-flying. I know several people that have tried to get their birds to wear a harness and it has not go...
