This week-end I went to the Canadian Parrot Conference, which means my parrots were being birdsat by my parents. Before I left, I was perch handling Petey as she would always lunge and try to bite me. Yesterday, when we came back home, I managed to get her to step up on my hand without biting for me to transfer her from her cage to my significant other (who she loves). Considerable progress. I just hope this continues to get better rather than having her return to wanting to bite my hand.
