You can learn just as much on these forums and on Youtube which is free and just as good as books and videos you pay for.. I just get a kick out of some of the videos ive seen claiming to "Bond with your bird in hours", what a joke.. I just have to say my little Sweetpea is just the best and all it took for me to get him where he is now is PATIENCE and never forcing him to do anything. And now i dont even have to say step up, he just jumps on my finger.. The only thing im working on now is scratches.. But they have a mind of there own and you have to accept the way they are and cant force them to do what you want.. Just enjoy them even if they never fully bond to you..
