Dear Parrot Lover,
Every parrot owner wants to have a sweet, cuddly parrot; but most end up with a parrot that is aggressive and that likes to take a bite out of every hand that comes near them.
Firstly, before any training begins you will need to understand what the circumstances should be in setting up the correct training environment for your parrot.
Parrots are at their most active in the morning hours and in the early evening hours. So choose one of these two times to train your parrot as this when a parrot has better focus and concentration. Just make sure that such training sessions happen at set time and on a set schedule.
Secondly, you’ll need to observe your parrot carefully to know if your parrot is ready to be trained. This can be done by simply learning how to read your parrot’s subtle behavior signs. These signs are how your parrot warns you before he is about to bite you or otherwise attack you. As soon as you are able to recognize these signs, not only will you be able to understand your parrot’s behavior a lot better, but identifying the triggering factors that precede a naughty behavior from your parrot.
The behavior signs to look out for include your parrot fluffing out of his feathers and pinning his eyes. Parrots that are alert and intrigued and ready to learn will typically stand up high on their perch and watch your every movement. Their pupils will also constrict and dilate.
If your parrot trusts you and regards you as a member of his flock, instead of a predator, he will attempt to communicate with you in order to get your attention. This is because parrots that are properly socialized and comfortable in their surroundings really hate to be alone or out of verbal contact with their flock members.
However, if parrot acts hesitant or nervous, you should rather place his cage in an area of your home that is less busy and take a few weeks to slowly move the cage back into more populated areas of your home. Make sure that wherever you finally place your parrot’s cage, it is a very well
lit area preferably with full-spectrum lighting and plenty of family activity and sounds.
Your parrot’s sense of his environment is very different from the way in which you see it. A parrot has eyesight that is between 2 to 8 times better than a human’s. Their ability to scrutinize images in their visual field and subtle motion at the same time is also greater than humans. Amazingly, a parrot’s eyes can even sense colors in the short wavelengths that are imperceptible to humans.
