I find not allowing my bird to land there or climb there in the first place helps.
If you can’t remove them from your shoulder without a hassle when you want them off then they can’t be trusted there and don’t deserve to be there- if my bird flies to land there when I don’t want or he’s being a brat then I will duck or move to stop his ability to land on me.
It’s easier to avoid a bad situation a lot of the time than it is to correct it.
Maybe I’ve misinterpreted one of your posts here but incase I haven’t- please don’t starve your bird, instead, you can pick times like first thing in the morning to work with your bird, many respond well to training before meal or eating times. My macaw responds best when I have pine nuts or he thinks he will get pine nuts.
Thankyou for your input.As it happens I do duck or move away from her when she tries to fly to me but she just persists then nips me when I am not looking.She is in so many ways a very sweet wee bid I can handle her in every way including her lying on her back in my hand.She is just bossy and want thing s her way.I end up having to put her into her cage for ten minutes and that seems to help .I may jus have to be very very patient with her.
I completely agree however If I leave the room I am basically leaving her unsupervised in a room where she can get into mischief.I don't have a designated bird room.This is why I have returned her to her cage. I'm not meaning to be awkward just saying it as it is.She does not have total freedom in my home all day but is out of her cage several times a day to fly and play.I also take her to the park and my local cafe in her carry crate.
