    My bird Chiri tries to get out of the cage without my hand and won’t step
    up. She just stares at my hand and lets me put my finger on her chest and
    tell her “step up”. I’ve had her about two months now.

    I have a cockatiel that I just got for Christmas. His name is Charming. He
    constantly looks at himself in the mirror and makes little to no effort to
    get out of his cage. I think he’s scared at my house. He won’t step up or
    move away from his mirror. I really need help. He was previously abused by
    young children at his last house so it scarred him a bit. He’s not
    physically hurt but I think what happened hurt him mentally.
    I don’t know how to train him to step up and stuff like that. He doesn’t
    even let me touch him without hissing and trying to bite me.

    Parrot Whisperer, I used a perch for my bird to step up on at first, before
    switching onto my hand, but whenever I use it, he bites the perch. I don’t
    really know if he thinks the perch is food, or a finger, but when I tried
    using my hand he stabs my fingers and pulls on them. Help?

    How do you fix territorial and aggressive behavior in a budgie. Also I
    don’t know if mine is a male. Like I am 99% sure he is because of his blue
    cere but he has some behaviors of a female. Like being aggressive and
    hormonal and territorial

    I can handfeed and pet my budgies belly/cheast but I can’t get her to step
    up… Sometimes, she put one foot on my finger, and then she flies away,
    and it’s really frustrating…

    Do you have to tame your birds (I have 2 budgies) when they are babies, or
    can you tame it any time? My female budgie is now 2 years old and when I
    first got her i had almost finished taming her when we got another budgie
    and my near-tamed bird stopped coming out of the cage and wouldn’t come
    near anyone. Sadly, the 2nd bird passed away due to sickness that couldn’t
    be cured, and the first bird was on her own for a few months and she comes
    out of the cage now that the second bird is gone. We aren’t always at home
    so we thought our bird was a bit lonely during the daytime, so we bought
    another budgie (male) but he is a bit younger than her. I want to tame both
    but I don’t know if its even worth trying again with the 2-year-old? Thank
    you :)

    Hello, I really need an advice here:)

    Quick question: How to get close to the bird when he’s in the cage, if he’s
    constantly moving? He gets so excited and starts jumping around, eating,
    drinking, touching my finger, but never holding steel?

    Longer explanation: We’ve got our cockatiel the day before yesterday.
    Watching his behavior the first day, I thought it will take long long time
    to get close to it, but… The very next day he started picking up seeds
    that I was giving him through the closed cage – first carefully, but then
    more and more confident. Today on my words “want a seed?” he’s already
    there waiting for a treat. So I thought it’s a good time to try and start
    getting him used to the hands and put my hands in the cage. First he was a
    bit worried, but then he looked ok, but always very excited, jumping and
    running around, eating and drinking. Sometimes stepping on my finger
    “accidentally”, few times stepped on my finger and held there like a minute
    or so, but I can’t get close to him with my own will, he’s like playing
    with me:) How to do?

    My conure is kinda tame, I got him from petcco, but he was a biter. When I
    put my hand near or in the cage, he lunges at my hand. And when I try to
    get him to step up he yanks the loose skin on my finger.

    I got my parakeets to hand feed without putting my hand on the cage or
    inside the cage i could even touch his chest without him freaking out but 2
    days after he didn’t want to do that anymore.
    Solutions? Anyone?

    I have a question Parrot Whisperer I seem to have taught my two budgies to
    get on my finger, but I seem to have to teach them everyday they run, fly,
    and dodge my finger. Eventually I can get them to stand on my finger calmly
    for minutes making my arm sore, but as soon as I put them down 5 minutes
    later it starts all over again. I don’t know how to have them be tame
    consistently. I slowly start every time except once, but the result is the
    same they eventually relax then the next 5 minutes they are scared again
    please help.

    So I have a 2 love birds, which I’ve been trying to interact with. For some
    reason I haven’t been able to successfully handle them. One of them that
    are getting better but still not willing to be held or played with. Do you
    have any suggestions that you would be willing to share on exactly how to
    train them? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    hi +Parrot Whisperer my fisher lovebird steps up on anything but my
    finger/hand ! when I put my hand into the cage he doesn’t freak out
    literally but he starts to climb up circling his cage !! Also he doesn’t
    steps up on the stick/perch for free unless there’s something to eat in my
    other hand….although he lets me pet him on the chest,head and beak but
    only when he eats from my hand !! so please let me know whats wrong !!

    I have two little birds in the same cage, it’s really hard to get them out
    of their cage since one is more scared than the other and one is
    aggressive, is it possible that both of them can be raised and tamed in one

    I have 2 parakeets and they do not trust me at all. (They live in the same
    cadge)I got them about 6 months ago and they are babies. They would never
    leave the cadge because they have to stick together in their minds. One
    trusts me a little bit but the other one does not like me please tell me
    how to fix this problem. That would be great!

    Thank you Parrot Whisperer for all your videos! I got a new young
    cockatiel about 4 weeks ago who was not very tame, but thanks to your
    videos, he is sitting on my shoulder right now and spends lots of time
    outside his cage with us! He is so fun, I had no idea about the whole
    “step up” training until watching your videos. Thanks!

    This is what I wrote to a person after YOU sent her that link:
    “Those parrot “whisperers” (with gave themselves their title) are not
    experts, even apparent not animal lovers:
    – no nature =fresh branches, herbs, no branches as bars is to be seen
    – they present birds without partners
    – they clip wings
    -> this is opposite of what birds want!
    Read what I write to Crafter MC!
    Why should a parrot become tame, if one takes him everything?
    The taming-approach is totally false, if the birds need’s are not
