I am interested in what you answered to Dawn. I have a Nanday female bird that I got as a hand fed baby. She is now 2 years old. She liked me at first and then she laid eggs about 8 months ago and decided she did not like me since. She loves my husband, but he is not a bird person and does not get her out of her cage or play with her. For the longest time, she would not let me take her out of her cage....only my husband could and he only would if I would ask him to please play with her so she would not be so sad. Well, longer story, but I have been making kissing sounds and talking sweet to her for weeks and weks and she now lets me get her out of her cage (sometimes) In fact, she is sitting on my shoulder as I type this. My question is this, how can I get her to play and like to be out of the cage with me? How do you tame your birds? I am willing and able to do what she needs, I just need to know what that is....thanks for any help you can give me...
