Stick training is going well! Typically, after Orangie steps up, I offer her a treat. But, we were filming so 🤷 In any case, Orangie is doing VERY well with training. We continue to make progress, and I'm hoping she'll step onto my hand soon. She also really enjoys her bath time (video forthcoming) 😁 It's very important not to force yourself on a bird and push them to interact if they aren't comfortable. There are certain birds and/or certain circumstances I wouldn't make such a noble effort towards bonding and training. But, I know Orangie's roots - that she was hand raised, but didn't receive regular interaction when she was in her last home.
