Good for you for being so curious and open-minded!

Thank you! This is my first bird and after so much research I just want to do everything right. I want my little companion to be my friend. ^^ itís sort of funny, the only way she finally let me start petting her was when I was trying to train her on it for so long that I broke down and started crying (I was a little emotional that day, it was a bad day) and only after I started crying did she let me give her scritches. (Without treats and everything!) It certainly made my day much better.

If she doesn't understand how to step up, then don't push her to step up. Just keep feeding her while trying to make it a little harder each time to reach for the food! If she wont go for it, the make it easier until she's more comfortable!

Food can go a long way in earning their trust!
