Ahh this is so exciting! As you probably read from the forum title, Sunshine has like 98% mastered step up! AND she's FLOWN to me from short distances OUTSIDE of the cage! I'm so proud of her. In March to even August, Sunshine was a very timid little girl with absolutely no trust in me. Look how far she's come in only 7 months! I can't wait to see what the future holds... Thank you all for helping me on my journey!
Added is a recent picture of her being her (her eyelashes are so long in comparison to mine haha)
Okay this is kind of shocking, scary, and relieving at the same time, but after school today, I let her out on top of the cage. She lost her balance and fell behind her cage! I tried to assist her by letting her step up and she did not want to. She flew around the room a couple times and then found a spot to land, where she literally sat there trying to eat the "seeds" (speckles of wood) on the ground! After a few tries she stepped up and let me bring her to her cage, after flying around the room for a couple of laps (she's an amazing flyer even with her clipped wings). It was traumatizing but I think it was more traumatizing for me rather than her, I don't know why. When I put her back in her cage, I thought her heart would be racing and she would be flying around her cage, but she automatically begged for more millet. She'll do anything for some seeds these days
