Parrot Frightened By Only My Hand
I never did anything bad to my parrot, he is around 4 years old and is a Meyers Parrot. We actually dont know the gender for sure, but we call him a he. We got him 2 months ago and he loved me. I could pet him and kiss him and he would look so happy. Well, he was put in a family members room and became too attached to that person and hated everyone else. He was then moved to mine so he could learn to no longer screech at other people in the house. After a while, he was fine. I could pet him as I did before, with no problems. We let the person who he was over attached to be with him again, and then after a while I dont know what happened. He makes a dog-like repetitive whimpery screechy sound if I approach him, but gets over it fast. I stick my hand out and he automatically steps up. I can give him kisses and talk to him and he's fine, but as soon as I move my other hand an inch toward him(sometimes if ai move it at all) he screeches and jumps off my finger and flies away. He accepts food from me and everything, I just can't get my hands by themselves near him without making him step up. Sometimes, he lets me do whatever I want at random times and he's fine with it. But then an hour later its like someone flipped a switch and he is scared of my hand. I did notice that the over attached family member is starting to mess with him constantly, so I'm not sure if this is just history repeating itself. The only thing that ia different is that he only doesn't like me, but tolerates everyone else.
This is getting very annoying, I've tried many things but I can't seem to make him get over it.
I don't get to spend much time with him like everyone else, since I am busy with stuff. Whenever I try to spetime with him he flies away. I'm not sure how to proceed from herend . Sorry for spelling errors, I'm typing from a phone.
Any advice is appreciated. I just don't know what to do.
Also, he isn't a rescue parrot as far as I know, we just got him from a pet store. I think he is a little sick right now, so he might just be a little crabby? (We already took him to the vet and he got medicine, but he didn't seem to get any better or worse, we will be taking him back to the vet soon)
