Do birds like hugs?
They can be very affectionate, in their own way. While many young birds do learn to enjoy cuddling, this can actually be detrimental to their health as they mature, especially for a female bird. There are many other ways to interact with your bird such as teaching him behaviors and words.
Which birds are easiest to tame?
Cockatiels along with budgerigars are the least expensive and easiest birds to obtain. Usually parent reared they can be tamed easily and make delightful first time pets with the added advantage they don’t screech like so many larger cousins. A hand reared cockatiel will cost slightly more.
