Taming an older bird

I have not heard of the bird you named, but I believe that our training materials on our Parrot Training page will be helpful. Also, try to find a book or articles that will help you understand this bird's personality traits and body language.

You can purchase a cage with feeder doors that will allow you to feed the bird without getting attacked and put on a Lixit water bottle so the bird will have clean water at all times.
