good taming website

So after having all sorts of trouble with Bob I think we're going back to the drawing board.
I've been pointed in the direction of this website and it looks good for beginners, and those with problem birds like me!

Looks like a good one, thank you. My baby IRN, Little Lucy, is very scared of people. Has been since day one even though she was hand fed. But we have made very noticeable progress.

Looks like a good website. I've never tried target training but it sure looks like it works good.

Me n Bob are gonna give it and the touching thing a go.
I dont have a clicker but can do a good click with my tongue.
I'm gonna film my sessions so I can analyse my technique!
Should be fun!

You can get a clicker n pointer from northern parrots quite cheap. I used it for some of my birds

Thanks Daisy.
I'll have a look.
Trouble is, once I start looking, I cant stop!

You can also get clickers in the dog section of Walmart or any petstore. I paid $3 or $4 for mine.

Thanks for sharing.
And clickers are easy to come by.
