She's adorable! I thought the clip would make her easier to manage

not for the cage aggression sadly, shes still just as nasty. but out of cage she is great! we are working on step up training. for at least 20-30 minutes a day. she gives kisses and likes to play with my hair and jewelry but im not 100% sure if i can call her tame if she doesnt step up well yet

Clipping their wings always helps with taming them. How do you get her out of the cage? I have to use a rope perch with both of my pi's but once away from the cage, they are both fine.

It's great she has become nicer to you Casey, at least outside the cage..

Since ice had her wings clipped like 2 weeks ago or so, she already has 2flight feathers back on each wing !! She's going to need a trim again..but I'm going to let the, fully come in.. Then just trim the first 5

She looks so innocent in those pix... I love the one of her laying in your hand.... my parrotlet would remove my fingers if I tried that.. but he is very tame in other ways... even tho I can reach in and get him to step up easily in his cage I cannot fiddle with other things without him biting me... I avoid this by making sure he is across the cage or I remove him before working in it... is there any way you can remove her from the cage before doing any maintenance in it? I just set my 'let on top of the cage and then he is fine.

i cant physically remove her from the cage without getting my hand ripped off. i have to let her come out on her own. some days she comes out, others she needs bribing. feeding and watering, i have to be as quick as possible.

if i am rearranging the cage i do move her if i can.

They are such funny creatures aren't they?? I mean she will lay in your hand and allow petting ( I know on her terms...lol) but if you put your hand in her cage it is all out war... silly girl... don't you know Momma is the one that gave you that cage!!

sometimes its very frustrating. its hard to clean her cage really really well because i get attacked, i just did a very thorough cleaning last night and had to take the cage apart to clean it. i have to do that once a month

I am lucky that my 'let does not make much mess in his cage so it is very easy to clean... the conure poops all over the bars of his cage , but luckily he is not at all cage aggressive and the most he does while I am half in his cage cleaning it is crawl all over me and nibble ( gently and playfully ) at me, my budgies also poop EVERYWHERE , but they just get scared of the sponge, rag or brush I am using and bolt out of the cage beside me... oh the joys of being a bird slave...lol

I love your Lovebirds, even though they may be brats. :P
I was wondering, what do you consider as being tame with a bird? From what I see of Munch, she IS tame (in my terms) from what I see. She may have an attitude but since she'll let you handle her when she's in the mood and such I see that as tame.
My Budgies I would consider NOT tame, as they won't come anywhere near me.

She looks so pretty.
I had to shut Bob in the travel cage for fear of my fingers!
He was not best pleased!.
Maybe I should get him clipped

I get Diego clipped even though he's tame The house is just to dangerous for him, and in like 3 weeks all his flight feathers grew back

Munch has been such a good girl lately! Just you wait and see, by March or April, she'll be 101% tame

Missing you always

haha we will see... shes not letting go of the cage aggression, but that may never change.

right now shes been caged with mango so she may prefer to be with me

when she was flighted she wasnt scared of me and shed come over and sit with me and see what i was doing.,

now since clipped, she shakes when shes on my hands.. she seems scared. she's also depressed and really subdued. i feel as though trust has been regressed
