Hi there! Wow thanks for the imput pajarita, i realy need to hear these kinds of things too
Let me explain the situation a bit further:
As far as our training went, i read that birds have a 15 min concentration span. So before i saw your post i trained him for 15 mins, a 5 min break and repeat 2-3 more times. yesterday i cut that in half, and today i just played with him. Even without pushing him, he still flew quite alot around the room over the course of the day.
In the long run, as far as flight training goes, i'm not training him recall for free flight outside, but (eventualy) i'd like for him to fly around the house, up and down the stairs and so on. His cage is always open, he knows how to get in and out, but prefers to be on the top of his cage.
Diet: in the morning, i feedc him a mix of chopped apples, carrots, lettuce and oranges. what he dosen't eat, is left for him at the top of his cage. He has a full bowl of the seed mix in the cage, and after he eats some veggies in the morning, he goes for the seeds. i've allso tried to "share a meal" with him, turns out he loves mashed potato
after sharing a meal at dinner yesterday, he came on his own at lunch today as we were sitting down! so thx for that advice.
During the course of the day he eats several times both the veggies and the seeds. although i decided to let him eat, i still think he's eating too much. i've tried to weigh him, to atleast have some record of his growth and weight gain. He refuses to stay still on the scale
He's hand raised, so i guess that makes some diference when talking about a companion bird.
Mine steps up, lands on my hand (or head) and seems realy sociable, not just with me but with others aswell, ecpecialy since i've had him for a short ehile.
