I try to give our flock a few out of cage sessions a week, but the only ones fully taking advantage of this are Sunny Bird and Abacus. With some prodding, Abacus can get Sprinkles to come out of the cage, and Checkers has come out too, but Licorice and Noodles are terrified with I open the doors and never try to come out. The only time they have come out is when something startled them and they happened to fly through the open door.
Licorice and Noodles are 'older' and were the birds that came with the cage. Do you think they will eventually want to start coming out of their cage or is this just the way they are?
For those who have not seen my flock (from left to right, Licorice, Noodles, Sunny Bird, Sprinkles, Abacus and Checkers on the bottom):
They may be tempted if they happen to see their flock mates having fun during their out of cage time. You can encourage Licorice and Noodles to come out, by setting up a play area near the cage and having a couple of perches strategically placed on the cage's bars (outside part) near the door.
They can also be enticed to come closer to the door by placing a favourite treat there.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
