Hey everybody! I got my pacific parrotlet from an e-commerce aviary in FL. He was very scared when he first arrived, which I expected. However, I got him in August 2020 and now it is March 2021 and he is still terrified of hands. We don't put our hands in his cage except to change his food and water, and he will let us talk to him with our faces very close to the cage but our hands will make him scurry. Toward the beginning, he would step up for a treat occasionally and he even flew to me once or twice. Sometimes he has flown from his cage and I had to go pick him up off of the floor, and he will let me pick him up. Other than that he won't let me touch him. I can tell he's pretty familiar with me because whenever I leave the room he starts peeping and tweeting really loudly. I just don't know how to hand-train him. My last parrotlet, Archie, was really friendly and affectionate from the beginning so this is a pretty weird change for me. I just want to make sure I'm doing everything I can to bond with him. He seems to like being in his cage a lot, so I think he is comfortable in his environment, but it's concerning that, even with his cage open for hours during the day, he doesn't want to leave the proximity of his cage. He comes out to snack and play on swing set, perches on top of the cage, and flies in circles around the room sometimes. We have read some of the other posts on the forum about hand-shy p'lets but after close to 9 months now, we're wondering if something could have gone wrong or we're missing something.
