Im not an expert but i do have an opinion.Im sorry to hear about what happened to penny.Penny is probably scared and nervous.You cant really say if she(?)will be tame or not.But im sure it will take some time love and care and she will definately come around to you handling her.Let her have time to gain your trust shell probably see you handling your birds and kno you are safe but she needs time and you shouldnt be forced to do anything she doesnt want to do,let her come around to you.Also if you do get penny she might be frightened by the other birds because of what happened.I hope i helped you in some way Good luck with penny and enjoy.
