I don't know if it's because they see that the "other bird" happily safe with me if you get what I mean.


Ahh, amazing idea! I would have never thought of that. Thank you, thank you! I'm going to try that today.

Okay, I just realized that we are leaving on vacation this saturday and we will be gone for a week. That is obviously going to affect their training. Does anyone have any advice for this?

Think of it as spring break for them. There's no homework, assignments, just relaxation. They'll be pretty rusty when you return, but you're doing so well now, they'll be back on the ball again.

Are you taking the birds with you? I feel bad when I go away...cause I know they don't get as much attention when I'm gone and I always fear relapse...oh well...such is life...sometimes we forget things when we don't practice, but it's in there somewhere and usually comes back quickly with a little reminder. =)

Thanks DeShanna and Coco. And no, 4keets, they are going to be taken care of by my neighbor while we are gone. smile

6/17/08 - I started with Jayka today. She did really well just like the previous days, but today she didn't do that weird leaning over thing. I was happy about that. So she stepped up well on and off both the perch and my finger. smile Although she seemed scared today.

I then got Grayson and I was soo pleasantly surprised! grin Grayson didn't bite me once! I was so happy! He was a tad stubborn when stepping up but he did step up every single time and didn't bite me! I have no idea what happened ... it's like he for got how to bite. So he did well. smile

Emmit did well, as usual. He stepped up and off of both the dowel and my finger just like Jayka and Grayson. But he does it so much easier than the other two - almost subconsciously. smile The other two I actually have to press on their chests, but not with Emmit. Emmit climbed onto my head at one point but then flew off about 20 seconds later and then he waddled away from me a few more times and kept trying to barely jump on my finger for a quick lift off. Which didn't work because my finger was pretty much at the same height as the floor, lol. Also, it seemed like Emmit was disracted the whole time but he did do well.

So these are their grades, haha.

Jayka: A-
Grayson: A-
Emmit: A-

I forgot to mention that Captain was a very bad parakeet while he was with my dad. He would screach and squawk from morning till night. My dad never let him out of his cage. Anyway when I came to pick him 5 days later he saw me and started cooing and trilling in his normal singing voice. My dad was like Wow I never heard him do that!" Mom came home he behaved.
Your kids will know what to do when you return smile

You are doing great!! I hope vacation doesn't set them back too much but I bet they bounce right back. They seem to be smart birdies. smile
