I have had my girl for a month she was 3 months when I purchased her. I have had birds on and off for years. Cockatiel, Quaker, and eclectic. Sunni is my first Parrotlet and I’ll be honest, very disappointed. The breeder claims “handled” but this girl doesn’t like hands. I can get her to take millets but if she sees my finger, she runs away. I literally have to chase her in her cage to get her. She beaks me but it doesn’t hurt. When I hold her she only wants to hide in my hair and if I finally get her to sit on my finger she either tries to fly or acts like she wants to fledge. At this point I wish I just would have gotten another Quaker or cockatiel. Any tips on how to interact with her?

Oops - I responded to your other post “looking for lots of advice” with my thoughts on how to help you interact with Sunni.
