Her African Grey Albert
Your advice has been very helpful to me these past few weeks!
What you are doing for people like me is wonderful.
I'm from South Africa, 21 years old and have the cutest Congo
African Grey - Albert - he's still very young, about 11 months
old. I got him when he was only 9 and a half weeks old.
I started to read up on Grey's to be more informed. Your site
and e-mails helped me a whole lot! He doesn't have any
behavioral problems yet, but luckily I'll now be ready for
them if the time comes.
I just wanted to send you this e-mail to thank you for all
the effort you do.
Sorry for pestering you. Just letting you know that Max has done brilliantly with the wave trick. Especially when we found his favourite treat is cheddar biscuits, I think he will do anything for them in time.
I am looking forward to learning more tricks with Max,

and her Blue & Gold Macaw Bosen
My name is Mandy. I have just bought a Blue/Gold Macaw,
who was very aggressive towards all the family at first (as
expected in new environment). Now after plucking up the
courage to start to tame this bird, we now have him actually
wanting to be touched and rewarded.
I have always loved these birds and had great admiration
for those who train and teach these birds, as I didn't think
it was possible, now I know first hand. Bosen, our bird is
approximately 1 year old and I feel is actually enjoying the
time he spends with us.
Thanks to your emails and your web site with all your
tricks and support I have found the courage to start to
handle Bosen more and more.
appreciate the information on the feather plucking."
Laura who owns Sissy, a cockatiel and Sasha, a
Good Morning Frederico,
I really appreciate the information on the feather plucking.
I feel so sorry for these little guys who have this problem.
I had a little cockatiel,
Sissy, who plucked her feathers. I did every thing I could
for her. I put her cage next to Clyde, her husband, and she
still would pluck. They had been given to us. When we got
Sasha, our cockatoo, I had hoped the three of them would be
pals. The cockatiels were so independent, they wouldn't let
us hold, train or anything.
A lady in a town about 50
miles from us fell in love with them and wanted them. We go
and see them and keep an eye on them. They are together in a
big cage, expecting 6 babies and all the feathers are
looking great. She said she figured they were breeders.
And maybe that was what it
would take. VOILA!!!, They are happy. Just
thought I would let you know that. Thank you again.
your e-mail on feather plucking parrots and I have forwarded
it to my girlfriend." Katharina and her Love Birds
I loved your e-mail on feather plucking parrots and I have
forwarded it to my girlfriend. She has two love birds
Rocket and Coromoto. (They do not call them Love Birds for
nothing.... LOL!!! :>)
Here is the problem:
Coromoto plucks Rockets feathers. The poor fellow has no
chest feathers and he has a featherless ring around his neck.
How do you break a bird of the habit of plucking another
