    Are IRNs generally cuddly birds?

    I’m a bird mama of two Bourke’s parrots and I love them to death. They are tame and hand trained but Bourkes are not a species that likes to hang out on your shoulder or be on you, give them a kiss, etc. I’ve been wanting a handfed IRN for over a year now and I really want to know if they’re...

    How are young Female fischers when it comes to taming?

    Hello guys , I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this but I've got me eye on this GORGEOUS 2 month old fischer female. I am planning on taming her but I heard fischers are little bit timid and females are not usually outgoing as males are. So what are your thoughts and tips when it...

    Need advice for cockatiel tame

    Hello. I have a cockatiel for the first time and his name is cherry. Last week, when Cherry was doing tame training with me, she stayed still when she touched his head with a finger with a spray millet, and came up to me. Last week, Cherry wanted to come out of the cage, so he opened the door...

    Video Processing of tame training to my cockatiel

    Hello, I was the last time I posted a new cockatiel for adoption and need help. When I tried using the tips from the previous post, I saw my bird still scared of my hands, but started eating the spray millet and drinking water. I'm still tame with my bird and I'm going to go to the vet. I am...

    New owner and new birdie!

    Hi, I have just brought home a hand raised cockatiel. We have not had her 24 hours as yet. She is fairly frightened and flighty. I am not going to attempt to handle her until she is settled and relaxed, eating, drinking etc. My query is if this takes say 2 weeks will my bird still be tame or...

    I have a 3,5x6m aviary with 5 lorries. i have Had them for around a year. When they all came to me they were not tamed (from different places) im not sure if all of them are wild caught but im pretty sure these two rainbow lorikeets are.

    New Ringneck Help!

    Hi! So this is my first post and first ever bird because I couldn’t find any threads that would help me enough. Two months ago I bought a IRN who I was told is a 4 month old male. the first few weeks were pretty difficult for both of us but we did get through. We are at a stage where I...

    Continue what I'm doing or not?

    So some might know I have a lovebird. Now, he is still scared of hands. Grab a snack since it'll be a long post. So when I first got him I made the mistake of putting my hands in the cage the very first day when I should've left him alone to settle. The next day I got his wings clipped because...

    Helloooo...

    Hi, I'm glowe and I'm new here. I just squirted a beautiful little peachface lovebird that I've been told is six weeks old. I've only had him the days (including today) but he wants nothing to do with me. I know it takes time but I've been doing a lot of research online and there are so many...

    Soooooo tough...

    Sigh, why are non hand raised finches soooooo hard to win over? Charlie and Emma have their good and bad days, but most of the time they are still pretty scared of me. I have had them now since September 1st of last year I think? I spend almost every day with them for at least 8-10 hours a day...

    New to owning a Parrot, seeking help- Sad Update Post #73

    Ok so first I have to introduce myself and my little friend. I'm Calin, from Romania. And recently, about 3 days ago I've bought an cockatiel, named MooShu. The first two days I've stayed in the same room as him, talking or playing relaxing music for Parrots found on youtube. After some hours...

    Interesting observations

    So to those of you who followed my post from a few weeks ago about handling the finches daily, I ended up abandoning it completely. It started to become a "chase" with Charlie and was really stressing him out. We almost had an accident too so I put a stop to it. Its been a week or so now and I...

    Building trust

    So as I predicted, having a little more trouble now outside the cage. On a scale of 1 to 100, when I am sitting near the cage and play stand (where I work from home), Emma seems to trust me 98%, Charlie about 60% with respect to the new finger training I am trying to work on (Holding millet with...

    Living Room of TERROR

    As I anticipated, had a small spat today in the living room. Emma was being adventurous, but keeping close by (doing laps around my head near the cage). Well Charlie finally built up enough courage and charged full steam ahead out of the cage and around the corner. Emma of course decided to...

    SUCCESS!

    I'm so happy! Decided to do a little early morning training with the fids (after they had a little breakfast of course). Had a huge step in the right direction with both of them. Started off offering them both their favorite seed/food on the edge/outside main cage door. Took Charlie a few touch...

    Hand taming

    I can tell already (and I expected as much) that hand taming these guys is going to require the patience beyond sainthood... I do recognize that they may not be able to be tamed, but I am going to continue to try my hardest. Here is what I have been working on lately (and yes I know it is still...

    Please Help taming Lovebird!

    I got my Lovebird Romeo when he was 3 years old, I don't know if he was tamed before that. I've had him for 3 years, and I was a minor when I got him, so I didn't really care for him. But now I'm ready to start working hard to tame and care for him. I was planning to take him to the vet in...

    Does hand-reared/ hand fed mean tame?

    All the birds I've had have been untame from the start, but not that I'm looking for another bird I've been seeing the words hand-reared and hand fed everywhere. I know this means they're used to humans but does this mean they're tame? Am I still going to have to tame them once I have them? I...
