I have seriously been considering getting an African Grey for many years, I have been given the opportunity to Re-Home a 6 year old male bird due to it's current owner being left with only weeks to live.
I understand the bird has never been handled and bites when this is attempted, would it be possible to re train it to being handled or is it too late.
I would love to take this bird and have lots of time to spend with it.
Your thoughts and comments would be much appreciated.
You will need to go slowly. Spend a lot of time with him. Give him treats and talk to him. Find his favourite treat before you let him out of the cage. You will need the treat to lure him back in the cage.
You may have more success with picking him up when he is on the ground.
We are here for any questions you may have.
