    I just bought a hand reared amazon. It does take food out of my hands but doesnt step up. It was dying to get out of the cage pacing up and down. I let it out and it flew around. Had to pick it up and put it back in the cage which resulted in me being bitten. As obviously expected! Any tips on how to get it to trust me and what to do when it gets agitated to come out?
    Thanks

    Let it out, let it explore, and usually they will usually go back to their cage on their own or will ask for help. He bit you because he wasn't ready to go home it sounds like

    A favorite treat can help lure them back to the cage too.

    Time and patience.
    Stepping-up is actually a learned behavior. If the breeder didn't teach him, then it's up to you.
