Semi aggressive ringneck

I've had my Indian ringneck male named Forest for a few years now but he is still quite nippy and he bites quite often. His previous home wasn't very good so I understand that it may be because of that but my other rescue birds came around and mostly stopped biting and nipping after a while but Forest still hasn't. Sometimes he let's me pick him up and stroke his head but other times be will bite if I try to hold him even if I do the same thing I did the last time he stepped up. Any advice?

Re: Semi aggressive ringneck

IRN's unfortunately often regress from any hand-taming/training very quickly and revert right back into their wild, non-tame behavior and personality unless you spend some time working with them every single day. So it probably has little to do with his previous home, and more to do with him needing more time from you every single day.

How much time do you spend with him one-on-one working with him on training/taming, and just hanging out with him doing things?

I try to spend a few hours everyday individually with all my birds but the amount of time is quite different everyday so I don't know. My birds are out of their cages with either me or my other family members for a very large portion of the day so I think that kind of counts as interacting with them as well. Also thanks for the advice I'll try to interact with him a little extra everyday.
