  1. After some consideration i have come to the decision to step down as moderator of the Bird food room / Nursery room due to personal reasons.I shall no longer be an active member of the forum. I don't regret a minute of my time i have given the forum & I hope in some way that my contribution over the past year has been able to make a little difference in the lives of some members & their greys. I wish each of you & your flock good health & a happy future. Tracy.

  11. Here is one for the step up Siobhan mentions.... http://www.greyforums.net/forums/training/92640-teach-the-step-up-command.html If you pull your hand away and yell, then your parrot gets a reaction out of you and will try again to get the same reaction. They think it's a game, try & show no reaction to him,try to distract him when you can see that he's going to bite,you can gently wobble your hand if he is on you this works well for me.I also have a clicker ( like some people use for dog training! ) if mine go to nip i click on the clicker & say a firm No in a strong voice, the clicker distracts them,or have a toy handy they he can play with. Some people use time out, if your parrot bites you simply return him to his cage for 5 minutes & walk away from him & say nothing.Never respond to the biting it only re-enforces negative behaviour.All parrots at some point will & do bite.
  12. I couldnt agree more on what Siobhan,Judy & Dan ( in previous posts ) have said. Annmarie If you have come here to dictate your point of view to us all,im afraid you will get a very hostile welcome from the majority of our members. Everyone is entitled to their own personal opinion but do not post yours continually without substantial facts & figures to substantiate it :angry:

  15. Pat if you go for Gizmo i dont think your be dissapointed at all The severe macaw,also known as Chestnut- Fronted macaw are wonderful birds.I did a ton of research on them while looking for a macaw myself. One of the main characteristics of the Severe Macaw is that it is so people friendly and its size is somewhat more manageable as it measures at only about twenty inches from head to tail. The severe macaw is extremely responsive to interaction with humans and in giving and getting lots of affection. Ropes make great toys to be chewed on and for the severe macaw to climb on as well, because they are great climbers. Wooden toys are fun and keep the severe macaw beak occupied and deterred against more destructive chewing. As far as food goes, they’re not as finicky as other birds. The severe macaw will eat nuts, fruit, seed, pellets, beans, vegetables, and all sorts of treats, very similiar to a grey. Good luck in your decision
