    hey barbara, i just recently bought and 13 months year old ringneck, abt 3
    days ago, but it’s really scared of me and doesnt take anything at all from
    me and starts to flee if im less than a metre close to her, even in the
    cage, i think the reason is because her previous owner clippped some blood
    feathers too, i bought the how to step up ebook, didnt exactly answer
    that… is there any hope for me at all?? 🙁 – a very concerned sad owner,
    what do i doo?

    @JessLuvsLee Definitely visit my website. On the home page on the top left
    side is a link to FAQ about parrot behavior problems. It will direct you to
    some resources to help get you started. You can definitely make progress,
    especially since she is willing to take some treats. It will just require
    some training with positive reinforcement with an emphasis on small

    I have a Cuban parrot that is a few months old but she is feisty. She won’t
    let me grab her like this. How do I tame her? She absolutely adores me and
    follows me like a dog but refuses to let me grab her. Thanks!

    @jjimcooboy409 nutriberries are a bit big. Be sure to break them up into
    small pieces for training. Hope that helps!

    it sounds like first you need to identify reinforcers for this bird and
    perhaps look at motivation. Look through my youtube videos for the one on
    Tips for creating motivation and also on my blog. You can find the link to
    the blog on my website. Then type training diet into the search bar on the
    right hand side

    Barbara this real does sound like it would help but i am only a student and
    it is hard to have some money aside the money i have works out perfectly so
    my birdy and me can live comfortably and spending anything apart from the
    stuff that we really need is hard and spending $25 is tough :/ do you have
    anything that helps that wont cost me that much ?

    @virussful they like to have a stick thingy called millet cockatiels like
    this alot but i think other parrots like it too they also like fruits and
    vegtables(but mainly fruit) and they also like various nuts. if you are
    trying to train your parrot use these foods as a reward so he/she will
    always want to do the requested thing you want him/her to do. only give
    them the treat if they do the right thing.

    @jjimcooboy409 I am thinking you mean millet? Yes if the bird does like
    millet you can use that as a reinforcer. However different birds like
    different things. You will need to observe your parrot and take note of his
    favorite foods and use them to reward desired behavior.
