Thank you for the article & video - very helpful! I can't wait until I have the trust and relationship with my bird that you have with yours. :)

What if my conure refuses to step up, holds the bite and as I slowly push forward, he just decides to jump off the back of the perch??

I ask, cause thats what he does...

Other than not wanting to step up, He always comes to the side of the cage to see me, eats from my hands, lets me pet his head (can't go near his belly), and we started stick/touch training.
