taming a young cockatiel
We have a young cackatiel (about 3 months of age).We have been trying to get him used to use by simply putting our hand in his cage (in a fist rather than having fingers out), so that he can get used to our hands and learn that we wont harm him.
My question is, is this the right/best way to get him used to us?
Our plans are to be able to have him out of his cage, sitting on our shoulders etc.
We have had him for just over a week and he is still very wary of us and will hiss if we get too close.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
