Parrots in need of a second home can make wonderful pets. The most promising candidate is a youngster that has merely been neglected, rather than abused or spoiled. To reduce fear and to bond with your new parrot, provide hiding opportunities by covering part of his cage with a towel during the first few days. Be nurturing, supportive and consistent. Handle your bird less if he tires easily, perhaps providing extra heat, sleep and yummy food. Soon, your new parrot will be an excellent companion.
