I got my first bird a couple of days ago and have been trying to train it to step up. Currently he won't run from my hand or nip at it when it's near him. He will allow me to pet any part of his body except his head and and closes his eyes if I stroke his belly repeatedly. I can get him to step up onto a perch by barely tapping his belly. But if I try to do the same thing with my finger he nips when I try to make him step up and continues nipping until I pet him a few times. Any suggestions on how to train him to step up and how to keep him calm after?
