Question Baby Tiel - Does she like me? (Video)

Here is my baby tiel 2 months old tomorrow. I had her for 1 week now. She came from a breeder hand fed. Her name is Alsing.

I want her to like me and enjoy touching if possible, so she can be harness trained.

From the video(included) does it seem like she likes me or still just getting used to me?

Also, should I be touching her neck and head or not? She seems to not be keen on it but not hate it?

Any tips on how to get her to be a cuddly loveable tame bird would be greatly appreciated

She will need time to settle in. All birds are different, she seems pretty cuddly already though considering you've just had her. They can take a while to get used to a new environment but overall she appears relaxed and happy enough in the video

Giving her scritches is fine, cockatiels are real loves for having their head and neck scratched

I'm surprised she was let go by the breeder at 7 weeks old. My cockatiels don't leave until they're a minimum of 8 weeks parent raised, hand raised birds are much more immature
