Double Yellow Head Amazon - Gypsy
My 5 year old Double Yellow Head Amazon, Gypsy is just my baby, I live alone with my 2 other parrots, a quaker and african meyer. I take Gypsy with me to work all of the time so that she could be used to being around other people and still she becomes overly excited and sometimes charges at the other people.
The breeder said to leave her behind my desk and that should help but I so want her to be able to step up to other people but she is very much a one person bird. The birth certificate says she is a female but the breeder says her behavior sounds more like a male.
my question is do I continue to try to socialize her or not to push it
