Your videos are really interesting Michael.
My echo parakeet, Bébé, who's a baby raised parrot is an interesting case. Whenever I go near his cage, he always gets fluffy and when I put my hands through the cage bars, he tries to bite me. He doesn't get aggessive when I just sit next to the cage, but only when I put my finger through the cage bars or try to open the door.However you may be stunned to know that he has a bit Of Dr. Jerkyll and Mr. Hyde persona.
One day I opened the cage door, he came out and went up the cage. He was still aggessive. I took a towel and grabbed it through that towel and took him away from his cage.Now he was no more fluffy. He accepted petting came on my hands and didn't bite me. But whenever I put him back in his cage he became aggressive again and refused to step up while trying to bite me. I tried the target trick several time but whenever he got near the stick, he fought with it, trying to break it.
Can you please give me a solution to this case, please Michael. I want him to step up so that I can teach him new tricks while improving our realtionship.
