- Real Name
Recently, I got a gorgeous Turquoise GCC from a bird expo. I know, I know, not the best place, but I was desperate to find one and no breeders were available within a 8 hour drive. He isn't tame, and is also very stubborn and extremely picky. I am currently weaning him onto Harrison's bird pellets using their bird bread and he refuses to eat any of it. When I put my hand in the cage, even if it's very slowly, he will back into a corner and will not leave until I walk away. He won't let you touch him, or pet him, and will not step up. (if you can even get that close to him) What's a good way to tame him as well as help him overcome his fear of hands? Also, does anyone have tips as to how to encourage him to try new food? Thanks!
