new bird not eating & very skittish!
i got my new bird yesterday, zim, and hes fully flighted, beautiful long feathers. we let him out on the first day, but he kept on accidentally hurting himself by running into things, and if i tried to help him by putting my hand near him so he has the option to be ‘ rescued ‘, but that makes him fly even more and get hurt more. it took us almost 30 minutes to get him back in the cage! he got on my hand 2 times, 1 in the cage when he was on the side, and 2 when he fell in a box and climbed onto my finger. he lets me touch him if im very slow, but im not sure how i get him to trust/bond with me hence he wont eat & is very very flighted & skittish. i really want to let him out again, but he scared he will get hurt, he got hurt in the middle of his cere last time. zim is a budgie, and so is my other bird. would introducing him to my budgie make him settle in more? he has got a vet check up, he is healthy.
