Taming

Answer:

Hi Renay,

You didn’t mention what species of bird you have? But it sounds like he wasn’t hand fed, or he would trust you by now. Even if he was a baby when you got him, it doesn’t mean he can be tamed if he wasn’t tame to begin with. I’ll give you the links to our taming and behavior information so you can have a better idea of how to work with him. But birds that were not hand fed can be difficult to ever tame.
