It seems like everything just clicked with Greyjoy over the past few days. Suddenly he's playing with toys that he never touched before and chatting up a storm. I also had some success getting him to step up. I was afraid we had hit a plateau with his training since I couldn't seem to get beyond him eating from my hand, he seems to hate having me press on his belly when attempting a step up. This time I tried using both hands, one in a perch posture and the other behind it holding some millet just out of reach. Maybe I just got lucky or have an exceptionally smart bird but I was really impressed with how quickly he figured it out. Now he's on my finger before I can even give a verbal command. Going to keep working on it and hopefully soon Grey will be out and about enjoying his room. I'm really trying hard to be patient & not rush him, however I'm excited for him to try out the playstand we built and maybe thinking about getting him a buddy. I feel like he's really happy and content and perhaps starting to like me.
