One minute fine and the next minute.....ripping you to shreds. It's the way of the tiel, you just have to show that you are not afraid of them. Been there, seen it, done it, got the scars!!! He's lovely. He's coming up to the hormonal stage, so beware, you have to show him who is boss now or you won't be having much fun with him in the future. I went through six months of **** with Dooby until a few people on here pointed out what I was doing wrong. I was basically letting him be the boss, if he went to bite me I would move away instead of putting my hand nearer to him. Anyway, after a lot of training, I made it. It was me that needed training, not Dooby.
so keep showing him whois bos and when he gets all macho and wings out this is my play gym, i say not its not i apied for it lol, i have been letting him get on with hi wing thing, showing him it doesnt bother at all, lts hope if i get thorugh that i wont get pecked too much, he shouted at me yesterday for puting him ack in and i just ignored his allmost "oi" noise lol, it was surgested i get his wong clipped so he depends on me wich would stop he getting so agressive a flighty,
check with ur local vet if he/she can do it.....or else a local breeder....even if its not the one you bought him from....i really wouldn't do it yourself....you really need two people and need to know exactly what feathers to clip and how far or else you can cut blood vessels and he will bleed....if a vet/breeder shows you...u can get a second pair of hands and feel confident then maybe in the future you can but its ALOT easier to get someone else to
