I have the opportunity to get a Dusky Pionus and a Quaker (not sure on color). Age is not for sure but the Pi is around 4 yrs and the Quaker around 2. Neither are tame, but also not aggressive. She wants them to stay together because they’re friends I guess.
As long as no aggression or screaming is involved I wouldn’t mind birds that I can’t physically interact with. I would be willing to respect the birds boundaries and interact with them in any way they choose. As long as they are healthy and happy.
But my question is, could these birds become tame? I know it could take a very long time, even yrs, and may never happen. But COULD it happen. Is it even possible for mature parrots to become hand tame and friendly?
