shoulder, shoulder, shoulder!

Recommended Posts

hi everyone

i have a ringneck parakeet who is semi tame now after a lot of persiverance and handling. she got to the stage where she'd sit on my leg and allow me to stroke her neck and back and she actually seemed to enjoy it, however, recently she won't allow anyone to do this anymore and has taken to sitting on shoulders all the time. i know this should be discouraged but it seems to be the only way i can spend time with her. i've been told that to 'tame' a parakeet you need to spend a lot of time with them to get them used to being around people which is why at the moment i allow her to sit on my shoulder. she seems very happy sat up there and isn't afraid of me but now whenever anyone tries to stroke her, she flies away!

any help would be greatly appreciated
