    Tips for getting your bird out of their cage.. I had a hard time taming my cockatiel. I used millet & would hold my hand in the cage for up to 20 min at a time, after about a week or so I started using 2 hands with the millet & eventually I would hold the millet far enough away he couldn't reach it without stepping up on my hand & then slowly moving him out of the cage while he was on my hand & I'd put him back in. I did this many times before he eventually was very excited to come out of his cage. When you do eventually get him out of the cage, make it as fun for your bird as possible. Toys, treats & patience. Take it slow. If you rush it & break the trust you have built, you will be back at square one and it will take twice as long. Remember, it is a marathon, not a sprint. Take your time. Now my cockatiel throws a fit if I put him in his cage. PS- it is a whole lot easier to have a large cage & a large cage door. Those tiny cages with the small door would make it very difficult. You can find a yaheetech 68" bird cage on amazon for $117. That what my tiel is in & it made it much easier to get him out of the cage with the large door & it's perfect size for him. He has a lot of room & I don't feel guilty when I have to cage him while I run errands. Bigger the cage, the better. I highly recommend the yaheetech cage on amazon! Hope this helps!

    Hi! I have a Senegal parrot that used to be so friendly, tame and lovable for the whole first year I had him. He literally hung out with me all day every day, then he turned aggressive out of nowhere. It came to the point where I couldn’t even take him out of the cage anymore because he was constantly drawing blood and was flighted so it was impossible to get him back in the cage when I did let him out. Literally any advice would be really appreciated because I’d love to get back to a point where I can have him out of the cage and a part of the family again. Thanks!

    Hi Marlene. I adopted my Amazon Allie 5 months ago. She is always excited when I get home. She screams cusses and tell me she’s a good girl. She comes to the front of her cage to greet me but if my hands get anywhere in sight she moves away. I can give her a treat and even coax her out of her cage for one but the minute she gets what she wants it’s right back in. I love her so much and have tried many things to get her to be close to me but nothing seems to work. She’s around 17 or 18, I don’t think she has had much human contact other than through the wires of her cage.

    Hey Marlene, really appreciate the community you've tried to make here, discouraging negative attitudes towards new bird owners and encouraging those with experience to share their knowledge.

    I've recently gotten a Linnie (Lineolated Parakeet), I grew up in a house with an Eclectus, but this is my first time getting a bird as soon as it's ready and all by myself.
    It's day 5 after bringing him home now, and my attempts at hand taming thus far have just been trying to get him used to my hand. He's comfortable with my hand in his cage when he knows for sure I'm not going for him, so if I'm removing poop he's fairly chill. As soon as I start trying to bring my fingers close enough for him to perch on however, he starts panicking and backing away.

    I've tried looking for tips online and from what I can gather, trying to coax him into getting onto my finger with treats is a start, but I'm struggling quite a lot to find a good treat food he'll accept. He's very disinterested in apples, even though that's a Linnie's favorite apparently, most nuts are too big for him to handle (Might try flaked almonds though), uncooked pasta (I read they're pretty into that) but he didn't seem confident enough to bite it hard enough.
    I tried sweetcorn recently, and he seems to really like it so I might be able to use that.

    But I suppose my question to anyone here who might know more about this is, is this the right step? I contacted the shop for any tips, and they simply said to to not bother with treats and to just chase with my hand and force him onto my finger – which sounds awful to me.
    Important note, he's not hand-reared, so this is pretty much hand taming from scratch.

    I'm wondering how it is possible to own a bird when you work 8hours a day? How do you combine work and owning a bird? It sometimes seems impossible…
