Flighted bird
by: Anonymous

Flighted birds tend to be harder to train. Why? Well because they have the confidence to fly away if they have had enough with you or just down right wont cooperate because they have this power over you. Their wild instincts will truely take over and you can end up with a very stubborn bird!! You are lucky this bird though has not broke any bones from flying.

You are very fortunate your bird did not break any bones flying into walls. Unless you have a completely bird safe room, with NO toxic items in it and nothing for the bird to land on that might fall over or fall on it, do not allow your bird to fly around the room.

Please see our Toxic / Non-toxic for birds list and realize that many items are not even on the list. Like the metal on some ceiling fans and the dye in carpets etc.

To start training your bird, simply keep spending time with the bird and learning what it does and does not enjoy. You use what it does enjoy as a reward and what it doesn't like to show what happens when it does something you wish to change.

Please read our training articles on our Parrot Training page for more information.
