Hi 馃檪 i have a 7-8 months old cockatiel named amber . https://i.hizliresim.com/lZvLyp.jpg
She is my first cockatiel and i wonder if she is happy with me. Im not a talkative person but i try my best to talk to her . She comes to my hand but when i am in my room ( her cage is also in my room) she prefers her cage. But when i take her to other rooms she is more interested with me . And also my mom noticed that amber doesnt sing much when im around her but when i go outside or go other rooms she starts to sing. I watch a lot of cockatiel videos on ig or youtube and cockatiels on there are very playful. When i put amber in other room she stays in the same spot until i came , i try to teach her to follow me to other room but when she not sees me she stays put( she is more comfortable in room has cage its exeption). I like cuddling and kissing a lot but she is a bit serious, she lets me kiss her but when i kiss her much she flies to her cage and turns her back to me https://i.hizliresim.com/zMM0yD.jpg
I want to make her happy she is very still . What should i do ? https://i.hizliresim.com/b66BdZ.jpg

Hello there and welcome to the forum!

How long have you had your cockatiel? If she is a new bird she is probably still settling into her new environment and getting used to you. New birds can be a bit shy and it takes some time for their personality to show. She sounds quite tame already. Be patient with her, go at her pace, and try some food bribery (a small piece of millet spray or a sunflower seed works well).

You can read more about taming your cockatiel in this article and about food bribery in this article.

That's great that you got her to eat lettuce, have you tried offering her some broccoli or shredded carrots? These are among my flock's favourite vegetables.

You need to give her time to adjust to you and become comfortable with you. Don't worry! It takes a lot of time and patience with a new bird but you will get there eventually. Don't give up, you are doing a great job with her already! :)
