So I have Had Malcom for 2 weeks now... And I am really struggling with being anywhere near him. He will tolerate my hand at the side of the cage near him and just in the door way. I have started to move my hand bey slowly into the cage bit by bit. And he will tolerate me quite close and then just changes his mind. Today he has gone out of his way to bite me, I wasn't even close enough for him to reach, he came to me to bite me. I presumed he was quite comfortable with my hand already as he will preen and close his eyes and not move away whilst my hand is quite close... But I just can't get any closer.

I don't know if I am just being impatient as I got to this point pretty fast or if I am doing something wrong...

Any ideas would help me lots! He is already a full grown adult, at least one but unsure of how old exactly when I got him. So I presume this is probably the reason. But any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you all. Sorry for the late reply! I had read all your comments but stupidly forgot to post a reply. I think I may be getting somewhere. I have left her alone other than having a chat and things. And she's really starting to get quite excited when I come in the room now! So fingers crossed we may becoming friends now...

Yes I think you may be right! We're definitely getting to the stage where she isn't scared of me putting her food in. She will even come straight over to the bowl whilst I'm still trying to attach it!
