WOW!
That's wonderful, Beatrice.
Rb will straight up BITE me if I try to contain/restrain him. Even if I could get him to the cage, I don't know how I'd detach him. He won't step off, unless I toss the miraculous green chile in first, and that wouldn't be much of a time-out.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

Re: Cage Hopping

RB is a special case. lol.

But there were some bite attempts when teaching the birds how to be held like that. My vet worked with them a little bit and showed us how to keep bites from becoming injuries to ourselves when starting to hold them that way. And while they didn't like it in the beginning, they prefer it that way now, probably because they're more stable that way.

Re: Cage Hopping

Rb *IS* a special case. Maybe I'll just leave well enough alone and keep on letting him do whatever he wants.
[Thanks for hosting the mini-time-out discussion, Dave.]
