Actually kksuns, Cheeko's cage opens up a lot like yours does. But I don't have a perch outside the cage like you do. Maybe I need to do this??? Also, Cheeko hasn't discovered the fun with toys and I haven't discovered a treat he would come to me for. His cage is about 3 feet off the ground. When he has been out before, he has been able to fly up to it. But a lot of times, he will fly to the sides and climb up to the top. When he is on top of his cage, it is very hard to get him to perch on my finger but everywhere else he's been, he perches just fine. I'm not sure if he knows how to get to the door/platform when he's on top either. He has never voluntarily came out and it's been 5 or 6 days since I've taken him out. He could be afraid of the kids, but I haven't noticed any behavior suggesting this. Because even when they are not here, he still doesn't come out. I just want him to be able to stretch his wings. When he has been out before, I let him fly around a little, then when he is idle for a few minutes, I go to him. Maybe I shouldn't be doing this. Maybe he wants to come out and not be bothered. Cheeko just might be slower than other birdies. But I still love him.
And I thank you for your response, kksuns!
