My cockatiels just hatched 2 babies. How do I get and keep them tame?

My tiels have two new babies. their last hatch i got one baby and i try to be nice and make him tame but he hates me. he likes to set by the computer and watch me, but if i go near him, he's gone. i leave him loose in my bedroom were my computer is because i spend so much time in here. so i want these new babies to be nice and sweet. both my adult children want one. thanks

  • Oh yes, and regular handling. That goes for any bird.

  • Agree with PP's

    Regular handling. I only had one cockatiel and it got to the point where she was NEVER in her cage. She walked around the house. She would hop up on the table when my mom was eating and rub against a cat LOL
    She slept in the bed with me. I have never had another bird like her.

  • Yeah, my sun conure Farrah is almost never in her cage. She's so tame my 3 year old picks her right up.
