I re-homed this cockatiel recently from a lady who couldn't take care of her anymore as her dog was barking at it all the time. I suspect that that is one of the reasons why my tiel is so hard to tame. She is still very young so I thought it wouldn't take long to tame her. Her name is Luna and she is vicious. I still think she will eventually become tame but I just wanted to ask what I should do. I have done all my research on how to tame a bird but I don't know who's advice to take. Some people say you should punish your bird for biting, some say you should approach them slowly and some say you should just go for it and make them step up. I've had her for a few weeks now and I started off slowly. Eventually she started eating from my hand and it was amazing. She still hisses and bites though. Everything was pretty much the same for the next couple of weeks. I could stroke her beak while she ate the treat I gave her but she wouldn't let me do anymore than that. Last night, I decided I decided I was going to let her bite me because every time she hissed i would jump and pull back my hand which only made matters worse. I wanted to get over my fear of her bites so that I wouldn't freak her out anymore. It turns out, it didn't hurt at all and it looks like she was just threatening me because she didn't even pinch. This morning, I wondered if she would get over her fear of me if I just went ahead and made her step up. I pushed her belly very quickly and she was on my hand, but then, she just flew away and now she's even more scared of me. Obviously, I won't be doing that again and I assume that she'll be just like the way she was before in a couple of days but I just don't know what to do anymore. Yes, she was improving but will she ever become tame like all the other tiels I see on YouTube and what shall I do?
