    @wwftherocklegend Yes but it’s mixed in with their droppings you can barely see it

    @wwftherocklegend No, they do NOT really pee, its just kind of all in one dropping, the “pee” is the gray ish stuff on the outside, the white is the poop…. 🙂 Hope I helped lol ?

    @quelita28 If you hand feed it, then stop for about 2 weeks-1 month, keep it on your hand, if it bites you, then after it bites, lightly push their head up, and say, “No!” Don’t say it TOO loud, just stay pretty calm, but say it a bit louder than your normal voice, unless you’re obnoxious, lol 🙂 I’m sure your not. Hope I helped. If I didn’t tell me I didn’t I will think of some thing else…. 🙂 Promise xxx…..?

    I’ve had my parakeet for three days and she already steps up. I got her from petco. Amazing I know. She’s still a little skittish, but she’s pretty much got it figured out. OOHHH one thing, she nose dived into a garbage pail… It was empty but it had remnants of ketchup at the bottom…. now the small area of feathers around her upper neck directly under her beak are all dirty and smudged together. I don’t think she can reach it herself, what do I do?

    Note, by “press against its breast” I don’t mean poke it. 🙁 Hold your finger sideways as an inviting perch. Just wanted to clarify that.

  13. Radien Says:

    Press gently against its breast until it gets the idea. Make sure it is used to being approached by humans before you attempt it (in other words, if it runs away, don’t chase it around with your hand).

    Some owners recommend that you also use a command word when you finger-train them so they’ll learn to “step up” on command. This can help, but it’s purely optional.

    how do you get a bird to step up on your finger fo the first time?

  16. Sexydragon96 Says:

    No you dont.If its biting him hes not going to want to play with him.

  17. halomarine101 Says:

    you have to play with it every day for an hour or put your hand in its cage and let it step up on your hand for an hour
