I have had my sun conure for about 3 weeks the cage is pretty much always open unless I'm gone and that's hardly at all. he will let me hand feed him but when I go to pet him he freaks out and tries to bite me!!! how long does it take for my bird to get comfortable enough so I can start teaching him to step-up?????? his cage is in NY room so he is ALWAYS right by me and I CONSTANTLY talk to him ALOT!!! This is my first bird but I have done ALOT OF RESEARCH ON HIM!!! he's a good bird but just was wondering how long it will take him to warm up to me to where I can pet him and start teaching him step-up????? THANK YOU!!! HAPPY FEATHERS!!!
