Very cool story! Sally is right - it does take time. This and other parrotlet forum are so helpful, as are some of the books that are available. Good luck!!!

I agree that we all get bitten. I've discovered that Bitsy really just doesn't like to be on my finger. He enjoys being on my shoulder or being near me on his playground. I do still practice step ups with him. That's another idea, but the way. When he's on your finger, just practice many many step ups with him - all in a row. He'll be so busy he can't bite. Nothing I've tried deters Bitsy from nipping if he's in the mood. If he appears to be in a foul mood, I usually just put him back. I think if Jimmy was my bird, considering what he's been through, I might just talk to him through cage for a few days or put your hand in there - offering yummy treats, but don't try to take him out. That's just my opinion.
