I am owned by 8 rescued parrots and taming has been a breeze except for my grey named Rocko.He is a mix grey.He has the tail of a congo and the head and beak of a timneh.He is very wild and I have been working with him for 7 months now and not getting anywhere.I want to be able to let him out more then anything.I can give him treats but he snags them from me.I have toweled him(which I hate to do)and taken him into the bathroom and he does real good for a little while as long as I don't touch him and then he goes wild.He used to growel at me all the time and he now doesn't do that anymore.I have tried the perch training,left his door open sitting near him and he won't come out but if I move away from him the chase is on.I am very consistant with everything and it works with my amazons but Rocko is tough.Rocko's sex and age are not known,he doesn't talk at all but sure can whistle(lol) and the lady I got him from was a breeder and had him in a corner by himself with NO toys or even a perch.She had him 2 yrs and never even gave him a name.Anyone with advice other then the normal taming things to do it would really help.
