My baby green cheek conure, is okay with hanging in my shoulder but hates it when I try to slowly pick it up from its box to hand feed or to play with. Everything g is okay until I use my hands. screeches as if its being bitten or tail pulled. I got (unsexed) them at 5 weeks old. Does the bird need more time to adjust or is this just its personality. Breeder claims that it was being hand fed but I’m not sure. I just finished weening my 9 week old green cheek. She was a walk in the park. But my new baby bird is proving difficult to tame or get use to being handled. Will my bird adjust? And learn to be handled? Or is it it’s personality?
