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