I have had my baby for about a month, I interact with her quite frequently, however she really resists me removing her from her cage. Can someone with a bit more experience help me in this area.

Phantom,

It might just take sometime. You can try giving her a treat when she comes out. This might make her WANT to get out of the cage.

I have a Sun Conure that screams at me anytime I put my finger in to pick him up. He doesn't bite and he'll step up for anyone with no problem (other than the scream). If you don't know this, it will scare you and you won't try.

Just give her sometime and be constant with her.

My one year old named Wendell has two distinct moods when I open his cage door.......the first, and most common, is that he absolutely LEAPS out of the door as soon as I open it, and the other is his coy mood, hanging out by the opening but not coming out. When he's playing coy, I found that as long as I position myself at a lower level than Wendell he happily jumps onto my finger. Always make them think it's their decision to come out........

It is going to get better and better. Takes time for them to trust you. I sing to my little girl, Chipper. I have heard many good stories of singing and also safflower seeds. I always tell people to offer safflower seeds. SO yummy and they love to take them from you. Helps them trust you.

Does he get lots of good sleep and great food, toys and big cage? All of these things make a healthy happy bird.
