Dooby is a little darling, she will sit on my shoulder, head, feet, wherever she wants really, but I've noticed that she seems to be afraid of my hands. Therefore, I am having trouble with getting her to step up. She doesn't seem to like to be touch either, but she will fly to my hands with no bother at all if there is millet there. Obviously, I don't want to have to bribe her everytime and I'd love to be able to give her head scritches, but at the moment, she doesn't seem to want that. How would you go about trying to get her a little bit more at ease with hands and fingers? I've got a feeling that she was grabbed each time they wanted to put her in the cage, because that is what they did when we went to collect her, so really it's hardly surprising that she has a slight fear of hands. To get her in her cage now, I just get a piece of millet, she jumps onto my hand and I can very easily put her in without holding her or grabbing her. I am hoping that in time, she will realise that I won't grab her or hold her against her will, which is probably what has happened in the past. Really, I want this for Dooby, I don't want her to feel fear when my hands go near her, that's just not nice.
