Won't Come out....

So Lily has been doing better with not biting and stepping up, But yesterday her and I had an altercation She stepped up and then latched onto an already scabbed spot where she bit yesterday and i didn't scream but she tore skin! So i plopped her on the ground furious with her. Took a few seconds to breath and calm down and then picked her up and put her back into her cage. Not roughly at all, but not as sweet and gentle as I would normal. I went to bandage the cut and came back and she would not come out ): She is now lunging out me and she never really did that. I think i broke her trust when I picked her up and put her back into her cage.....How can i regain it? what should i do? she just sits in her happy hut
I feel bad but she caused some serious damage. I know she is just beaking. And I have been patient. But she doesnt trust me anymore at all. I sing and she wont even come.......

She should get over it in her own time. please try not to push her, let her come out in her own time.
if she is biting when you ask her to step up, you could try to redirect her to lift her head before she steps up. This can be done with treats or clicker.
Be patient and be positive. love will win.


A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.

I have tried looking through your posts, but I can find how old your bird is???

With my conures I teach them to be gentle by giving a little squeak, when they bite... They stop immediately, and then I tell them gentle and then good girl/boy...

Babies don't know the difference between your clothes and you - they have to be taught when it hurts...

I never push myself onto my birds - if they want to interact with me, they come to me...

Okay, with birds right? Birds have feathers, she thinks when she lunges at you she's gunna get a mouthful of feathers, she doesn't actually think she's gunna hurt you badly and so she goes for it anyways. She isn't scared of you I don't think, some birds can be over confident and bossy. My Perry is like that, he's always biting me! But I get used to it. I have birds who love each other to bits, but still have their moments where they lunge at each other to say back off. I've never had one injure the other, but they do lunge when they're not in the mood. And Perry, he will run over to his snuggle hut and hide when he knows he's done something wrong, and then he sulks! I don't think she meant to bite you in the same place twice, but she probably doesn't understand why that one had a more severe punishment than all of the other times. I would personally open her cage doors and let her come out by her self, don't push her to do something she doesn't want to

Thats what I did! I was eating my cherrios for breakfast and she flew over and ate one with me haha. I am just gonna let her do things on her own terms, except for biting. I heard it can months for them to truly get used to you and their new environment.
