I am so happy, have had Sarvie for 7 days now and he will happily get on my hand and uses me as an elevator to get around his cage! Is not afraid of me at all. Am very happy as some people kept telling because he is an Avery bird he won't adjust to me, they have to be hand reared. My last budgie was out of an Avery and he was awesome. You have to be patient but I think its just as do-able. Is it normal for baby cockatiel's to find it difficult to get around a cage? He can fly up or down, but only does it sometimes. And he tries to climb the cage, but doesn't seem to have the co-ordination. He's 11 weeks old, so I am hoping this is just a baby thing and he'll learn to as he gets older. I can't remember what my budgie was like as a baby.
