Also, if he is a bit unpredictable try putting an old pillowcase or something over his head (just put it on top of him, it will be dark and he will feel a little more comfotable), he then cant see your hand comming. Pick him up quickly and confidantly. You being nervous, will also make him nervous!
But he should get better with reg handling and as he gets older!
This worked with a corn of mine that was very nervous, and used to try and flee everytime i went near her! Worked a treat in no time!
