I am a first time bird owner and I got a female cockatiel at the beginning of this month, I definitely gave her time to adjust since I did my research on these birds before getting her, and I’m taking the steps towards taming her. She has gotten used to me, but I seem to have hit a few obstacles that I’m having a difficult time moving past, she will only perch on my hands sit in my lap if she has something to snack on (millet or seeds) and she will let me pet her and give her scritches, but then she will run away from my hand/fingers if I try to get her to perch without a treat. She also had play time today for 3 hours and then I had to put her in the cage for a bit so I could get some cleaning done around the house and now when I try to put my hand on the cage, (gently so she can get used to it and usually she’s perfectly fine when I do that) she bites the cage towards my finger and wants nothing to do with me. I have no idea what happened.
