Yesterday was "step back day", they all flew straight "up to the sky" (air conditioner) stayed there for a long time, flew to the top of the furniture and stayed there all afternoon. Got back for bed.

Today was strange day. First, Lulu got out from cage in the morning while I was cleaning it. She went to their cage and stayed there all morning, without even breakfast. (strange, she is a big eater) In the afternoon when they have time together out of cages she didnt want to come out, Maks and Zuca were on her cage, she was on top of it from inside, door open. Strange.

Finally, Maks and Zuca didnt want to go home to sleep. They usually come in around 9pm eat we play for a few minutes and they go to sleep. Tonight, Zuca didnt want to go in util half past 11pm he slept outside, Maks inside. I didnt know what to do so I covered their cage from all sides but front. Then Maks got out went to him, told him something, he then got in, she right after him. Strange. I really would like to know birds language.

Great thing that happened today was that I played with Maks outside the cage for the first time. She followed bell-millet pointing game from one cage to another, from one stage of cage to antother ... It was great. She only didn/t want to step anywhere besides cages. But I am sure she will soon.

Yesterday was crazy day. They didn/t want to go back to their cages at all. Since they are not trained to land on hand or perch outside cage, they all just stood at air conditioner all night (taking a nap with lights on). I was afraid to turn the lights off (when its dark and they are outside cage they panic and just fly around), and was afraid to go to sleep since they are in the living room, (we don/t have bird room). So all four of us had a sleepless night. They went back to their "homes" at 7am Today they were all quiet and sleepy, and went to bed early like all teens when spend the night out.

Hi,
there was no update because I paused bell training Max, since I/ve noticed that my hand in cage is too much stressful for Zuca. Instead I worked on bonding with Zuca and just playing with Max. Now, Zuca is not afraid with my hand in cage, he started to eat from my fingers even when Max isnt in cage. Before he eat that way only when he sees Max doing that. Still he is eating that way only the greens and millet. He is not opened to try new things from fingers. Still does not want to step up on my finger.
Maks, still won/t step up when out of cage, but she is not affraid to crawl into the cage when my hand is near the door (when they are out, Zuca comes in first, then I almost close the door and wait for Max to crawl in from side of cage)
I still dont know what to do with Lulu. I am taking her cage in every room I go, play music for her, talk to her. She started to call for me (or I am imagining) and to chat a bit, but still afraid of my hand in HER cage. Yesterday, in their out of cage time she flew back into their old cage. There she was the same old Lulu. Wanted to step on my finger, eat from my hand even wanted to be petted. And she refused to go out of BIG cage. Again, I had to be terrible person and to take her to HER cage. I dont know what to do. All three of them cannot be together (again confirmed yesterday), when she is separated she is clearly unhappy no matter how much time I spend with her and how much time they spend together out of cage.
One more question, please confirm that these black spots on Zuca and Max pin feathers are normal when molting (I saw the same here on forum, but I am not sure they are normal, since I havent noticed them last time they molted)



EDIT Maybe I can put Lulu and Zuca together and separate Max. I didn/t do that in the first place because Lulu is so health fragile and frequently needs extra care. And Max is so, so smart that she teaches Zuca everything, and I thought it was for Zuca/s benefit.
