We're loving Miss Marple, but I have a question about a couple of her behaviors.
She will take millet from me no problem, and will sit on my hand, and my finger for a moment or two.
But she doesn't appreciate my attempts to get her to step up, she sidles away every time.
When she does sometimes sit on my hand she nibbles the HECK out of it! Not hard, just gnaw, gnaw, gnaw like she's trying to get more millet off of it. What the heck is that about?
Also - I am probably offering the millet wrong. I open the door and hold it inside the cage for her, and she'll munch away until my hand gets tired. After awhile I withdraw the millet. Sometimes, she will get very annoyed at that and SNAP pretty hard at my departing hand. I suppose she sees my hand has the "taker of treats" not as the "giver of treats". Any ideas about how to offer millet without the inevitable withdrawal?
Otherwise I guess I can't expect too much after 1 month. I guess I thought "hand-tame" would be a more tame than she seems.
