how do I sell my cockateil that doesn't like to be held and bites? ?

his bites don't hurt but they do look aggressive. he wont let anyone hold him. I don't know how to sell a bird that I cant show people he is nice. its hard to sell a bird when he wont let me or the buyer hold him.

    Start calling rescues.  I work in a cockatiel rescue.  Many of the birds can't be touched or held.

    Were you too busy to train the bird?

    even if he didnt bite it would still be extremely hard to sell. they can be bought from a breeder or store for around just $100. your only realistic option is to give it away for free

    Try and get him trained before u sell him. Look up bird sites or youtube> try and get him first to sit on your hand. I am sure he could be trained.

    Give it to a bird rescue for rehabilitation.

    You can't. Nobody else wants it for the same reason you don't want it.
