Hi. I got my cockatiel, Freyja, last May from a petshop, she was ill at the time with a crop infection (at the pet shop she was on an all seed diet) so the first couple of weeks I had her I had to hold her to give her medicine twice a day. After that she started becoming extremely skittish round me (I can understand why).
Recently I have made some progress with her, she steps up on my hand when it's time to go to bed and shes very chatty, especially when I call her name. But she's still really jumpy and whenever theres a bird flying past the window or if there is a loud noise she'll start flying around the room and squawking non-stop for about five minutes. I just want to know what I can do to calm her down. I usually sit by her cage and talk to her but it doesn't seem to be making much difference. :/
Is it just part of a cockatiel's nature to be like that? Because I get worried about her being stressed.
