I got a parakeet several months ago, and she's not responding to my attempts to tame her...or at least, not responding "normally". For starters, when I go over to the cage and (slowly) open up the cage door to interact with her, she starts screeching and tries desperately to get as far away from me as possible. She will hop onto the perch farthest away from me, lean up against the side of the cage and turn her head away. She pretty much does this any time I walk up to her cage even without opening the door, minus the screeching. She's okay with eating millet when I pinch it in between my fingers and hold it up to her, but she won't eat directly out of my hands. When I open the cage door, and move my hand toward her as slowly as possible, she relaxes a bit, and will step up onto my finger as soon as it's within her jumping range (I had her wings clipped for taming, and they're starting to grow back As soon as I make any motion to bring her out of her cage, even with her facing the cage door and not the inside of her cage, she will immediately turn around and hop back onto a perch. If I do get her out of the cage, she'll try to jump on top of it. If she's out of the cage and she can see it, she'll try to get to it, no matter how high up off the ground she is or how far away the cage is. Of course since her wings are clipped she falls to the ground if I dont catch her when she jumps, and as a result has broken several blood feathers on her wings recently. The only time she's happy when I'm around is when I'm sitting down next to her cage and she's on top of it, when shes sitting on my shoulder, when I'm in my room on the opposite of where her cage is and sitting perfectly still, when I sing or play music, or around my brother's parakeet. Oh and also she is scared of literally EVERYTHING. If I have her on my shoulder and I head to a window and open the blinds, it scares her to see the blinds opening so she'll fly off my shoulder onto the floor. She's ridiculously skittish. She doesn't pluck her feathers, which is good but I'm kinda surprised since everything seems to be a threat to her except perches, toys and food. Is she cage bound? Phobic? Is there any way I can tame her properly with the kind of personality she has? I've tried for the 5 months I've had her and for the past 2 I havent been getting anywhere. I'm out of ideas. Help!!
