My max pionus will sit on my arms when got jacket on but won't sit on my bare arms he just pecks lightly at my hairs on my arms. Does anyone have any idea as to why he won't go on bare arms.
Thank you paul dickens.

Parrot doesn't like bare arms
by: Tracie

All of our parrots enjoy preening the hairs on our arms too. :-)

Your bird may feel a better grip on your jacket, and it may not like the smell or body oil on your arm, depending on the soap or lotions you may use.

Birds like what they like, and dislike what they dislike and there is no fixing that. You could cut the sleeve off of an old shirt and just slip the sleeve on if you don't want to put the whole shirt or jacket on.

You CAN train the bird not to pull on your hair or stop any other activity you wish to stop. We have some bird training articles on our Parrot Training page if you wish to read them.
