Re: She is coming to me :)

JtBirds, I did do something today at dinner... she likes to eat off my plate but she was in her cage. I saw her reaching for me so I would get a bite of pasta but ask her to touch my finger and after the touch I fed her. She absolutely LOVED this trick and would hold her hand out over and over even if I had the spoon up she would still reach out and touch me first.
This very well could be our new trick.
and to your comment earlier, I have tried as hard as I can to do everything right and have spent the last month at my laptop researching before bringing her home.

Since the previous owner said she is doing things she's never done before I like to think it's the way I have worked with her
Trust is EARNED...not given!
