will not step up on your hand
by: Anonymous

when you put your hand up to him, does he touch it? do you put your hand right under his belly? when my caique wouldn't get on peoples hand, we started off by picking him up. (like cradeling) then eventually he got used to hands and stepped up on them.

good luck with you AGP.
