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.
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.
, 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)
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.
