Help! Pollito doesn't behave

Postby Hong&Rupert » Mon Dec 23, 2019 5:02 pm

Hi everyone! Little Rupert is about to be 1 year old, and he can fly ! Rupert was handed to me with his wings clipped, but I'm not so sure about clip em again! It wasn't a problem some days ago, but now Rupert flies anywhere! He isn't trained and For me is really hard to find a clicker and train him with it, can I find another way? :monk:

Clickers are not necessary for training and, in truth, recall training works up to a point so birds should never go outside without a harness so I would strongly suggest you are super careful about people opening doors to the outside when he is out-of-cage. But, if you want to train him to come to you, all you need is a high value item to use as a reward, patience and persistence.

My Keku Quaker doesn't always come to me when I call her but she always responds by vocalizing (because my main concern is to know exactly where she is at all times).
