    What beautiful parrots you have! I just love these birds, they are so intelligent and fun. I don't have one yet, but I am currently shopping around for one. My Aunt has a couple of African parrots and she is helping me to find a good bird. If you have any suggestions for this soon to be parrot owner, I would love to hear them. Thank you.

    I need to know how to tame my birds they are both cockatiels ones a boy and the other is a girl. How do you train them so good. I have only trained two birds in my life and they were both budgies. These two cockatiels wings are not clipped.

    If they are older , I would just let them be and get a handfed baby
    Clipping their wings really seems to stress cockatiels out , or atleast thats my opinion
    but if you really want to tame them use treats, soft words those are the two best things for winning a bird over
    I hope this helps [​IMG]
