Hello, new cockatiel owner! I have a 4 month old lutino named Orion and right now, he hates having his feet touched. Will accept head scratches but otherwise will get defensive if I try to make him step up. He doesn't have interest exploring outside the cage and I CAN take him out but that's more forcing him to step up and I don't like doing that. I want him to come to me.

Any tips on what to do? I hold millet and he eats it and I just offer a finger, hoping one day he'll decide, "ah ok sure"
