Quaker parrot rarely comes to me

by Hootie's mom

My Quaker parrot is a 10 year old female. She used to be very attached to me and was always on my shoulder or lap. Once a family member came to live with us she stopped coming to me and now barely comes out of her cage.

The family member no longer lives with us and hasn't for over 3 years but my bird will still rarely come to me. I've tried many things and she won't come to me. How do I correct the problem. She recently stepped up to my finger for the first time in almost 3 years. Can anyone help?

Hi Hooties mom.

Your Quaker got used to not coming to you when your guest moved into your home. Now you have to get her trust back. Keep working with her. Does she have a fav treat? If so you can use it to re-train her.
