Taming Parrots


Taming Parrots

Taming parrots can be the hardest job in the world if you don’t know the how to tame them. Parrots by nature are wild and this nature reflects in their behavior. It is always a wise decision to study about the parrot’s nature and then act accordingly. If you follow these simple training guides that I will state here, you and your pet parrot will have some pleasant time while training.

Taming parrots is a very simple job if you know how to do it. Firstly be gentle and show your love and affection while taming parrots. Never make a rude sound or try to command them while taming parrots. Every bird has its own issues that make them aggressive. For example some birds have fear or even emotional problems. This will result in tough response from birds if tried to handle. Generally parrot tries to bite you if they are aggressive or fearful.

Here are some steps that you can take to properly tame your pet parrot:

  1. Always make a time table for training and follow it strictly while taming parrots.

  2. Take your parrot to another area while training. Parrots tend to resist when trained at their cage.

  3. One drastic step that you can take is to clip their wings if they become very aggressive.

  4. Evening time is the best time for training because parrots are somewhat passive at this time when the light is low.

  5. Don’t retract or show you fear to parrot when they bite you.

  6. If your bird bites too much, you can use a thick glove or towel to protect yourself. This also teaches your bird that no matter how hard he/she tries there is no effect at all. This is the most effective way of taming parrots which are very aggressive.

  7. Repeat the same training exercise over and over again every day but don’t overwork while taming parrots.

  8. When you try to control your parrot use gentle touch and soft voice.

  9. Talking in a loud voice or yelling is a bad idea when it comes to taming parrot. Using soft and loving voice is way better then yelling.

Once you have some success in taming the parrots, you might want to teach parrot to talk which he/she will be able to do with some effort in your part.
