    Tips on Helping My Skittish and Somewhat Neglected Female Have Better Life..

    Self explanatory title. She was Fed well and presumably allowed to free fly by her breeder (I Say this because she is a great flyer- she can fly in circles and land perfectly without hitting anything; While my 8 month old Male hits everything- So much so that I had to have wings clipped) However, it was been confirmed that she was hardly ever handled by humans at all. Hence why I consider her to have been somewhat neglected. She will bite considerably hard if you grab her suddenly and set her on your finger, (I have a pair of leather gloves) once she's there though, she'll usually stay put, especially If Charlie is there with her. She's very skittish, and I'm wondering if any one has any tips on how to give her a better quality of life...?

    Oh and I've had her since February 17th.

    One option is to clip her wings as well. It’s temporary until she grows her feathers back and it will slow her down enough so you can work on training her.

    The male's flying skills will only improve with practice so hopefully, when he grows his flight feathers and gets his parroty licence back he will fly with the female, tire her out and she will slow down a bit* Meanwhile, sit back and enjoy the fun.

    *please note this is only a theory and probably has no bearing on what happens in real life
