Two weeks ago we brought home a green keet (Sprout) born approximately at the beginning of the year, hand fed and "tamed". She gets on and off our hand, sits on our shoulders, but flies away from us, back to her cage, at every opportunity. I bring her out on a regular basis just to hang out, but she does seem to enjoy being with us. I take her into another room, away from the cage, but now she flies away, just anywhere. It is getting worse, now she nips and runs away from us when we try to get her out of her cage. If we try to touch her at all, she bites. Was it too much too soon? Would another bird help, but then would she ever love us? If she bites and I say "NO" and return her to her cage and cover her, it is not punishment, that is what she wants. I'm not sure what to do next. I've owned cockatiels before, but they instantly warmed to us and were so social and affectionate. Apparently, our new keet, Sprout, just won't give the love away for nothing.
