Re: HELP, nightmare IRN bluffing

First one need earn the trust of the new bird. This can take many months or in some cases years. Apparently this young bird has learned that she can control what humans do by biting. I suggest you back off from her and let her get comfortable in her new surrounds. One baby step at a time is a good way to begin earning her trust. Do not give her the opportunity to bite you. One can perch train a bird with lots of treats. Always reward her good behavior with what ever treats she responds to. Just because this bird was hand fed does not mean she will not bite.
