"I have a male Citron 'Too' that I am having a bit of trouble trying to train. He is over 26 years old and lived most of his life with two women, and never got proper training. After the owner passed away and no one wanted him i took him in. I already have a female African Gray Timneh that has been in my family for about 36 years. She is not hand tame. They have their own cages and get along fine for the most part. It's hard to tell what Buddy my 'Toos' interest in me is some of the time. He is afraid of perch step ups but seems willing to step on my arm, but I got a nasty bite offering my arm. All the signs seems Ok for pick up but while on my arm he chomped down. It's hard to get either of them off the cage on to my standing training perch set up. I've had him for about 3 years. Being disable it's hard to spend the proper time to train them both but I try in small steps. He screams or makes noises for me when I am out of the room and will let me scratch his head. He seems to prefer being women more then me. I know with practice and time he will start to like me for more then food and giving toys. I am sure he doesn't like his drop in rank going from the Alpha to being last in line after myself and Pedro the Gray. With my awesome double bird carrier I would love to take them or at least on of them out and around more. Small steps."
