My little birdy snick is a fischer that was born in the middle of last august and I got him when he was 2 months. So far he's bonded enough with me to where if I leave the cage open and go to a different room then after a few minutes he'll follow me and politely wait for me to pick him up and put him on my shoulder (his wings were clipped when I got him). He steps up right away except for when he's on a branch in his cage or is on my shoulder as well as being comfortable with my grabbing him (gently) with my whole hand. Strangely enough he's ok with me petting his beak but not his head? I try to motivate him with millets but he backs off as soon as he sees my finger coming for the petting. Any advice?
