Terrified Brown Headed African Parrot

Hi I tried to trim my parrots toe nails about a month ago, only got one nail done and it bled like crazy, got the bleeding stopped, but I will never attempt that again. Ever since then my Brown headed African parrot has been terrified of me and will not come out of her cage, how can I get her to trust and like me again.?

Bird scared after nail trim

I am so sorry! It will take some time for your bird to trust you, but don't give up. We have some training materials on our Parrot Training page that may help you. You will sort of need to start from scratch on earning your bird's trust.

I suggest you take your bird to your avian vet for nail trimmings and purchase some Safe Pedicure Perches for your bird. Put the pedicure perches at the feeding stations and any other place that your bird spends a lot of time.
