    Many bird owners don’t clip, and do recall training (fly training), which is a great “sport” for the bird… You need to know what you’re doing though, so that you don’t lose your pet. A harness can be used also.

    Ive had my grey for 14 years and learned she will say what she wants when she wants, lol. But certain actions do get a proper response; like seeing me with my keys means Bye, bye.

    i have a lovebird less than 1 year old and it’s winges is been cut for he very firsts days…that why is difficult to make triks?pls answer?should i continiu trying to train it?

    clipping the wings, prevents it from flying.. but its only the tips of them. They come clipped when you buy them at a local petstore, but if hand raised usually they arent clipped..

    my african grey is 5 years old and hes well aware of what happens when im goin out somewhere
    i put my jacket on and he does the zip noise and says See ya later Alf! similar to your ‘do you want a scratch’ example. he should say see ya later to me not to himself. (this was my dad who made that mistakel) Once a parrot has learnt a phrase for a certain situation, is it possible to change that phrase or will it be that way permanently?
    also youre great with Tui im sorry to hear about your loss.

    jonny~ to ur question.. sometimes its customary to clip the flight feather just a tad so that u dont run the risk of losing ur pet and it allows them to fly far enough but not off..but i do agre with the gentlemen in the video .. thas why i only clip wings after 2 years but most hand feed raised birds never leave there owner and fly away

    I saw a baby African grey in Chinatown L.A. CA, and it is located in Alpine St.U should check it out if u passby there.

    how much are they (african greys) in California.

  15. WTHdumbass

    i’m not sure how true it is, but i’ve heard that parrots won’t work very hard for your attention if they’ve already got it. if they don’t they try to attract your attention by talking and stuff. makes sense though right? haha.

    Thanks very much for the reply, well the parrot doesn’t exactly talk infront of me yet but he does make alot of noises infront of me, the only thing he has said was his name infront of me wich is Samari, in the way i call him.

    Birds take a while to create a bond with people by now your bird is probably talking in front of you, if not you may need to spend more time with it.

    Great Advice Andrew. I do not plan to clip my greys wings and he will wear a harness when going out side. It also builds the birds security to let it fly also.

  21. sharukhaskar

    hi, i have an african grey parrot. i had him for 2 weeks now, i bought him from somebody else that had him before.
    he doesnt bite and he is quite friendly to, but he does make alot of noises but never infront of me or anyone else, when he/she is alone then it starts making alot of noises he does also say hello but only when he is alone, can anyone tell me why please?

  22. BOOMBABY122

  23. dirtyblondxtina

    I enjoyed your video. It was simple but clear. I have a 4 month old Grey and love her and look forward to teaching her more. When did you start training her to talk.
