Would like advise on working with someone else's bird!
Hello I'm a new member!
Ok so I don't have any birds right now but I'm interested in owning my own in the future and currently just in "research" mode. My friend however is about give me an opportunity to gain some quality bird experience.
She's visiting family out of state for one week. I agreed to house-sit while she's away and take care of her birds. (a budgie, a cockatiel, a rainbow lory, and an electus)
Now my friend has told me everything I need to know about giving each bird food, water, and cage maintenance. Most of the birds tolerate me enough for me to take them out of their cage and onto the play stand which is fine with me.
My one hurdle seems to be with the rainbow lory. She hasn't accepted any of my attempts to socialize with her...and she bites to the point of drawing blood.
I don't want her cope up in her cage all that week because of this! Any advise on easing the tension?
