Curious what you would charge to be able and train my 1 year old african gray to fly free and then come back with a special caller?

recalling african gray
by: Linda

As Tracie said, regardless of who helps you learn to train your bird to return, you'll need an enclosed area that is quite large inside and one that is also enclosed for the outside. Never, ever allow your bird free in an unenclosed area because he will most likely fly away until very well-trained to come back.

As Tracie said you can contact a bird club, but I've never heard of them teaching that to parrots. I've heard of it with raptors, just not parrots.

I'd do a search on the internet if club does not have any ideas, and they may, on teaching a parrot to return. Ultimately, you will have to be the one to teach your own bird, and you'll be paying for someone to train YOU just like with training dogs. We think we are training our dogs, and actually, WE are being trained to work with our dogs, so is same with birds or other pets.

Recalling bird training
by: Tracie

I do not teach bird recalling, so I can't help you. You will need to contact a bird club in your area and see if there is anyone near you that teaches this.

I know you have to start indoors, and then eventually move outdoors to a location that FOR SURE does not have hawks or predators that will attack your bird.
