Stop the Biting and Screaming!

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Dear Parrot Lover,

As a parrot owner you are most likely well aware of how amazingly intelligent your parrot is. Which makes training your parrot quite frustrating because you know that they are intelligent, so why are the y not mastering the training that you are doing with them?!

Well, here are five of the very best parrot training tips to help you train your parrot to be lovable and obedient.

1. With their high intelligence level, parrots should be treated with utmost love and respect. In fact, larger parrots actually have the mental capacity of two to three year old toddler, which means that they are smarter than dogs and cats. Remember this the next time your parrot throws his food on the floor or throws what seems to be a tantrum - because it most likely is!

2. Always talk to your parrot in a very soft and calm voice. You should never raise your voice or scream at your parrot. No matter what he does, you have to remain calm. As soon as your parrot notices a change in the pitch of your voice they will realize that you are either upset or excited and they will begin to mimic you because he thinks that you are playing some sort of game and will also scream in order to play with you. Once this happens you will have to end your training session and try again later when both of you are calm.

3. Under no circumstances should you ever hit your parrot or throw things at him or his cage whilst he is inside his cage. Parrots are extremely fragile creatures and are very easily injured. Abusing a pet bird physically can lead to psychological problems in the long run and is still considered to be animal abuse. You should also never tease your parrot unfairly, or allow any children in your household to tease your parrot. Emotionally abusing your parrot is the same as physically abusing your parrot and will ultimately lead to parrot aggression issues.

4. Do not attempt to punish your parrot by withholding his food or water, as this too is considered to be abusive. Compromising your parrot’s health is never the right way to deal with any behavior problem.

5. One of the very first commands that you should teach your parrot is the ’step up’ command. Press your finger gently against your parrot’s breastbone so that he is forced to take a step forward and up onto your finger. Be sure to repeat the command ’step up’ every time you want your parrot to step up. After a while you parrot will automatically step up onto your finger without you even having to say the command.

Dear Parrot Lover,

Even if you have bought your parrot the largest cage that you could possibly have afforded, and even splurged a bit more for a play gym for him to play on whenever he is outside of his cage, your parrot may not be happy (or healthy) if you haven’t provided him with adequate perches inside his cage and on his play gym.

On average, parrots require a minimum of five perches inside their cage. All five of these perches, however, should be of differing diameter and length, and should also be made of different materials. The best materials to choose for your parrot’s perches are wooden perch, a concrete or sand perch and a rope perch for climbing around on. The concrete or sand perch will help to keep your parrot’s nails and beak trimmed down. The wooden perch is very reminiscent of what you will find your parrot sitting and sleeping on in the wild.

However, the rope perch may actually offer the best value for your parrot. Rope perches are bendable and so can be adjusted into different configurations to fit nicely inside your parrot’s cage. Plus, rope perches are soft enough that they will not irritate or hurt the underside of your parrot’s feet - it will actually be more like a little mini-massage for your parrot!

But rope perches actually have another advantage too. They will help your parrot to acquire the necessary skills needed to improve his athleticism and balance. Climbing up and down a rope perch is also good exercise for parrots. Plus, rope perches also make excellent toys for parrots that like to explore everything, and nibble on everything as well.

When shopping for a rope perch for your parrot, make quite sure that you are getting one that has the correct diameter so that your parrot’s feet will fit around the perch nicely. You don’t want your parrot’s toes to cross over each as that means the perch is too small; but you also don’t want your parrot’s feet to actually be flat on the perch either as that means that the rope perch is too big.

As a bird lover and parrot owner, you know these birds are incredibly smart and agile. We’ve taken them out of the jungle and put them in our homes, so it’s up to us to give them as much variety as we can.

Our birds need items to play on and with. This keeps them from being bored when you are away from home and helps to prevent some of the naughty bird behaviors that come from boredom.

Bringing Back the Jungle

In the jungle, these lovely birds are able to move agilely through the trees and work their way through the layers of the forest. That is missing in our rather sterile homes. It is easy to provide your bird with a stimulating method of moving around.

A rope perch adds a new dimension to your parrot’s normal routine. It is an inexpensive way to add fun to your bird’s parrot tower. At 60″ long, this bendable rope can be twisted like a vine wrapping around the pole in any way you want it to. This gives your bird the opportunity to expertly wind around in a new way!
