... and I'll be a great pet!

Are you gifted with common sense? If so, taming your bird should be fun.

Consider these:

The average home provides an ideal environment for pet birds.

Birds are naturally friendly animals.

We win a bird's friendship by showing ourselves as consistent, caring people.

As soon as birds lose their fear of us they-

-enjoy receiving our attention

-like to be touched

-want to eat out of our hand

-willingly communicate (vocalize) with us

-become curious about almost everything

-Fear of people is the main barrier to birds becoming loving pets. Newly purchased birds are almost always full of fear.
