is still sad for being in separate cage. But we made progress, she is eating millet from my hand
. I was desperate, because she needed to have "energy" food for molting, but she didn/t want to eat anything but seeds from feeder. I read here that they are most willing to eat in the morning, so I gave her pearls right after waking her up. And it went ok. That is how she started to eat from hand. She still doesn/t want to step on my finger. When she comes out from cage she flies to other cage and usually just sits or sleep on the top of it. She comes back to her cage to eat. I am then closing her cage. Btw her cage is either on the back of the sofa behind me, or next to me on the sofa (I am working from home, so I am home all day) and I am talking to her a lot, count loud when crochet, my son is reading to her, but we noticed that she likes the best when my hubby sings
There has been a progress with Zuca
, also. He stopped flying around the cage when my hand is inside. He even eat a little millet today. I was so pleased.
I/ve also started to train Maks
. I was trying to teach her to come to place that I am showing her (eg, step on the swing, or on the perch, or on basket, ...) I can see that she is interested in, but she is looking at me like if she is thinking "I would gladly do what you want, but what on Earth are you doing with your finger", so she just bite my finger
). She so intelligent that she could do anything, just I don/t know how to explain to her what I want. (she is able to open unlocked cage door, get inside, and close door behind, nobody believes me, but I know you will!)
