Thought I would share some good news!
I have found that my lovie, chica was a bit timid with hands but today she allowed me to have my hand near her without running away or tensing up. She also ate some seed from a spoon with my hand a couple inches from her.
Im so happy and excited for us to really start bonding :)

Thanks everyone for the good advice that helped me progress with her as well! Thought I would throw in another update right now as well. She just ate directly from my hand so Im super pumped :) Im still gonna take things slow though but this is great that shes now progressing quickly

Nice! Did you feed her by hand in the morning like I suggested or what other method did you use?

I did! however I did it in the evening rather than the morning
Well I'm glad that it's starting to work. Be careful though, I was recently told at a pet store that if you do it too often then they'll get a habit where they will only want to eat from your hand and not your bowl. I did it for around a month with my bird before I stopped but never had that problem with him. Thought I'd tell you anyways.

Oh okay thank you. Currently I don't feed her from my hand unless its a training treat so I think I will be fine
