GGC's are nippy. Your new bird will eventually let you hold him. They have to develop your trust and that takes time. There isn't a fix, except give your bird some space and let him figure out his new home and his new owner. They will let you know when they are ready for affection. My Taco started crawling down my front under my chin and giving me nibbles. She wanted me to put my hand over her to snuggle. It took awhile, but she gained my trust. Don't rush things with any bird. If you are advancing toward him with your open hand or too quickly...they think you are a predator and will defend themselves. Go slow. It will happen.:

I recently got a green cheek cure, I know he is a male, and he is a little over a year old, I never had a bird but this one keeps biting me and won't let me hold him, is there a way I can fix this. Thank you
