Re: New ringneck, completely untame

Our IRN was completely untame when we got him from the pet store. While he doesnt let us pick him up bare skin he will come out of his cage on his own and wonder around and if we put a towel over our hand he will step up onto it. Just not bare skin. Persevere and give your bird time. Im sure being a...

Re: coco's screeching is killing my life!!

Our IRN Techno has become a bit of a screecher aswell :( He doesnt talk yet. Hes around 8months old now. I thought his vocals would of developed past screeching by this age. He screeches when we leave the room, when we arrive home, when we eat and when we dont pay attention to him. Im guessing it is...

Re: Ringneck from Pet store = bad behaviour? Help please!!!!

Yeah i have been researching clicker training. Im convinced Techno is a girl still, even though we call it a HE. We are just struggling to get him to behave outside his cage. His biting is non stop. He bites everything from our feet, or if we have shoes on....our shoes to our table coasters..... His...

Re: Ringneck from Pet store = bad behaviour? Help please!!!!

What worked for me was getting Izzy in a neutral room (I used my bathroom....came with a seat and everything lol). I would wait til Izzy would fly to the floor. I would get her and take her to the bathroom. I also used a clicker (they are SO CHEAP). It was away from her safe zone, in an unfamiliar ...

Re: Ringneck from Pet store = bad behaviour? Help please!!!!

He is a lovely colour i will admit aswell :) Thanks for complimenting it. Im guessing Techno is about five months old. We have had him for nearlly two months now. He was quite young when we got him.We dont interact with our other birds like we do with him. The cockatiels and love birds are purely av...
