After having Callisto for about a week and a half, I have just gotten her to step on my hand. This was the first time I put my hand in the cage, and I thought it would have taken much longer. She was very comfortable in my hand and now she is on her perch a little fluffed up, standing on one foot and grinding her beak. I am so proud of her! She has been very friendly and social. So different from when we first got her. I am so excited for the time that we will have together. Hopefully I will have her for a long time.
It's wonderful Callisto was receptive to you already.
Just be sure to go at her pace and don't rush her.
Yeah, I'm trying to be very careful and understanding. I put some millet in my hand and held it very still inside the cage where she could easily see it. Once she was on my hand though she didn't want off.
Best wishes as you enjoy your journey with your little sweetie!
