Hiya yogureta,

I would strongly advise having the wings clipped.  This will prevent him flying away out of your reach and it is safer in my opinion.  Have a proper Avarian vet do this for you and at the same time show you how to do it.

I am no expert, but catching him and telling him "in your cage" as you place him firmly but gently in his cage should not make him hand shy. He needs to learn to do this command, for his own safety as well as your sanity!  Persevere. Hopefully lots of others on this msg board will also be able to advise you.
