    Just take it slow. Try just putting your hand in the cage for a minute or two and left him know you are there before picking him up. Also don't hold him for too long, just for a minute or two and then put him down to let him get used to the idea of you picking him up and handling him.

    Offer some "candy" like a mealworm for example. If he establishes a connection between "being handled" and "getting sweets", his attitude will change.
