Jet Flew

I had put him in Aces cage so we could go to the front room together. Went back to my room and took him out of Aces cage. He stepped up right away. I backed up about 3 feet from their cages and ask Jet do you want me or do you want your cage. He started flapping his wings and flew up a foot and over 3 feet to return to his cage.

Re: Jet Flew

Right now I'm having the opposite problem with my babies, they rather fly to me then back in their cage. With 5 babies I have them on my head, arm, and shoulders.....

Re: Jet Flew

I'm just glad he doesn't drop like a rock anymore. He has 2short little tail feathers growing In and his wings are getting stronger. The only "problem" is keeping him away from my glasses.

Re: Jet Flew

Was he not trained to fly before when he fledged?

Re: Jet Flew

They said he was. I think he just had a bad clip. He could not even glide.

Re: Jet Flew

I didn't realize Jet was so young! He's adorable, such a sweet face.

Sweet Pea had a terrible clip at about the same age as Jet. It was already done before I met her. She went through two molts before the clipped feathers were replaced. By the time her new feathers came in, she had gained enough confidence to be a good flyer.

Re: Jet Flew

Mickey I don't know. I give him lots of out of cage time. About 2 weeks ago he started flapping his wings a lot. He would watch Ace fly and flap his wings. Then today he flew.

Re: Jet Flew

Thanks Allee. When I got him a month ago they said all the babies hatched 3 to 5 months ago.
