So I let Teetee (dont ask 7yr old named him) out of the cage for a fly around, prior to that I had held some millet in the cage for him and he was happy to eat it though he didnt come near my hand, however from the second he was out he was frantic to get away from us, first he went thud into a window, then stayed there a while, when Neil tried to get him down he flew off in a panic and hit a wall, window and door. We tried everything to catch him but couldnt get near him so had to resort to using the net he came with
He hated the net and squalked really loudly and bit Neil hard (drew blood) now I dont want to allow him back out because of stressing him out.
We are going to get him to a vet but can only find one that specialises in birds (unless anyone knows any in Coventry?) It is closed until monday, and then we would have to hope for a friday or sat appointment as Neil is the only one that can get him there. I dont want to let Teetee out until it is done and cant do it myself, for a start we dont know how to hold him properly and none of us would know what to do without being shown by a vet first.
Does anyone have any tricks for super nervous birds? If we can find away to get him without us being bitten and him getting so scared then he wont have to wait so long other wise he is going to be confined to his cage until then. (He will still get attention as we will still talk to him and I will still continue offering his millet from my hand) Please help
