Kowhai won't go in cage
I mentioned this in another thread, but I needed to start a new one specifically for this issue.
As many may know, Kowhai spends most of his time outside his cage. He never hated his cage, and never seemed bored in it, but he is now flat out refusing to go into his cage anymore. I can't bribe him in, if he's on my hand and I even motion we are heading towards the cage he flies off. He won't go in now at all.
Now he's flying away from me when I approach because he thinks I'm going to try to put him in his cage. He is going completely backwards from his normal hand trained self and avoiding me at all costs which is heartbreaking.
I had to finally break down and catch him with a towel to finally get him in after two days of trying to get him in of his own volition and now he's just avoids me at all costs... I feel like a failure.
Is there anything I can do now....?
