Hi all, I have recently bought a cockateil, now the man in the shop I bought it from said it was around 5 month old .. I have no idea how to tell so I will attach a picture and hopefully someone can tell me :)

Also what's the best way to hand tame him and get him to come on my finger?
I have had him about 5 days now and still a little scared (and jumps) when I go near the cage, When I put my hand in to change food/water he jumps and flaps about. The only way I get progress is when I take his food away for a few hours and offers him treats, this way he will eat it out of my hand and maybe step onto my hand briefly before jumping back off.
Any info will be helpful :) :grey tiel:
