I just got a cockatiel from a local breeder. I have done extensive and through research. However, the taming and bonding process looks alot easier when you are watching a YouTube video about it! Lucy will step up about fifty percent of the time. Most of the time, if I have millet she will step up. However, she does bite me sometimes if I put my finger in front of her hand and say step up. I have just had her for four days or so. She definitely likes sitting on my shoulder. She doesn't like me petting her, she doesn't ask for scritches, and she can definitely get spooked. Is this normal behavior? I know the taming process takes a while but if I don't push her boundaries will she never let me pet her? I have seen a lot of people say not to force them to do anything because you will lose their trust but when do I know it's okay to try? I'm sorry if this is simple, I'm a first time bird owner but I am definitely trying my hardest! Also, does anyone know what type she is?
