Hi everyone, I am new to the sight so hi! :)

I have always had a love of birds, and after much thought and deliberation I have taken the plunge and recently bought my first, a beautiful Bourke Parakeet.

This is my first time owning a bird. I have done a lot of research into feeding and bonding/trusting and hand training but I need some advise. A lot of the information out there seems to be counter intuitive and I want to make sure I make my parakeets life as calm and lovely as possible.

What would you say are the first steps to bonding with your bird? I am talking to him several times a day and placing some spray millet in my open palm just inside his cage to build trust. If I hold the millet out he doesn't seem interested.

Does this sound right?

Any help will be much appreciated.
