Magnus is doing well, he plays with his toys and occasionally (though definitely not as often as I'd like) visits his bird stand to play. I'm doing some really relaxed flight recall training, getting him to fly to me on command. I'm still teaching it though, and he's not very consistent. I'm trying to get him more active, because even though I have the door open to his cage probably 70 percent of the time, he rarely utilizes the opportunity to explore. He goes to his bird stand for maybe 20 minutes a day, and back to cage. His cage is fairly small. What I really wanted to ask, is that I've seen people kind of throw their budgies from their hands to get them to fly. How do you go about teaching this behavior? Or do you just...do it. And will my bird hate me if I do it? I see some people do that as a form of indoor flight-training, where they throw their bird and then let them fly around until they put their hand up for recall. I want to start, but I'm scared that Magnus will hate me. Sorry if this post is all over the place, but do you guys have any tips? If not about the throwing thing, do you have any tips to get him more active/inquisitive/willing to explore?
