How to tame a Amazon Parrot
I recently purchased a amazon parrot, he used to be so scared of hands you couldn't put your hand near his cage or he would growl, I'm assuming he was treated badly in his last home as when I purchased him he was in a cage about the size of a budgie cage!
He is now in a much larger parrot cage which I bought him and he takes food through the bars of the cage and also sometimes out of my hand when I put my hand in the cage. I would like to start letting him out of his cage but he won't 'step up' yet. He won't come onto my hand so I use a spare perch and he will step on it to get a treat I hold in my other hand occasionaly but other than that he won't step onto it if he isn't bribed or doesn't want to. How can I get him to trust me more?
He is 8months old and speaks ALOT more than when I got him (which was only 2 weeks ago!) Any help/tips would be appreciated, thanks! :)
