Good evening all. Today I picked up my newest baby. Although fully weaned Sydney is very young. I have gotten two other cockatiels before this baby. Both are sweet as pie from the minute they came home. However this baby is terrified. All were handfed. I can’t understand why ? I went to visit several times over the last 5 weeks and the baby was fine. But now when I brought them home. Sydney wants nothing to do with me, even hissed at me ! That’s a first for me and I’m at a loss. Where do I go from here ? Is this a personality issue or a socialization issue ? Again both of my other tiels are from the same place.

It’s completely normal since you just got here today. In fact, it’s rare that your old birds WERE nice to you as soon as you got them. I think you should let the baby get used to you and it’s new surroundings. Also, congrats on the new bird and welcome!
