How to Hold Your Pet Bird
There are several different ways to hold your pet bird. If you’re a new bird owner and unsure of what to do, ask your vet, fellow bird owners, or pet store associate for instructions and assistance. One common way to hold your bird is to open the cage and place your index finger inside offering it as a perch for your bird. Your bird may latch on and walk onto your finger. This is one way to hold your bird. If you’ve had your bird for a while and you are used to one another’s company than the bird may allow you to scoop him up by placing a hand under his feet and another hand over him to cup him into your hands securely. He may also allow you to offer your finger as a perch and then allow you to snuggle him close to your body. Talk with your Glendale, AZ vet for more tips.
