Default Hand Training Journal Hida and Tsuruchi (On-going Thread)

So I just started some hand training up again. As some of you might know, if you read my other posts, we had some complications with Hida and Tsuruchi. Because Hida was guarding the food from his brother we went out to buy a bigger cage hoping to get them to behave better. Since they weren't hand trained at the time, we had some troubles geyting them into the new cage.

It did not work though, as Hida was still being aggressive and guarding his food. Then we had to stress the birds out and move them to different cages. This has caused some fear of hands.

We are working on gaining that trust back now, though. Both show significant improvements as the days roll by. Hida will get curious of a hand as long as it does not move. Tsuruchi will not mind the hand if it moves slightly, but still gets skittish if you approach him too quickly. Tsuruchi has been testing my fingers a lot, but Hida hasn't yet.

I know it will take time with all the stress and scares they had to endure making sure they had an appropriate environment that was safe to them both. Hopefully they will be hand trained very soon. I will tru to keep you all updated.

I'm glad you're working with them again and it certainly sounds like they're progressing!

I can't wait to hear how they continue to do and I'm looking forward to seeing updates

If you'd like, I can make this a "Taming Journal" so you're able to continue posting on this thread about your progress and members know where to come on your taming and bonding journey with your boys

Best of luck!

With both of your birds now in separate cages their stress levels should lessen hugely, it will take time but with encouragement and love they should soon start to come around, I am looking forward to hearing of your progress with them both.

I can sometimes put my finger up to Tsuruchi and have him explore it a little with his beak. Then he'll look at me and run down his perch. I think it is a little bit of uncertainty and a bit of playfulness coming through.

Hida is making some significant progress, too. Although I cannot approach him with my hand as much as I want to, he will sit there and relax despite my hand being in the cage, as long as it is not too close to him.

I've changed the title and made your thread an on-going training journal so you can post updates regarding Hida and Tsuruchi's progress here.

Best wishes for continued success!

Today is showing some good results, for the most part.

Tsuruchi is letting me pet his chest, and he even touched my finger with his foot twice so far, as if testing to see if my finger would be a good perch. When he is being hyper self and I put my hand in his cage it tends to lessen his energy and calm him down a bit.

Hida is doing better and being a bit less nervous. He likes to listen to me talk and seems even more curious of my finger each time I put my hand in the cage. He has started to pick up on when I am going to put my hand in his cage, too. I always do Tsuruchi first, so when he hears me trying to get Tsuruchi to step onto my finger, he knows my hand is going in his cage next. I think it helps him calm down a bit more because he knows what is going on.

So, because of the amount of stress that had been through and their fear of hands because of it, my girlfriend and I have not been cleaning the cages as thoroughly as we should be. We had just been cleaning the bedding pan every week, but since we noticed a buildup of droppings, we decided that we absolutely had to get the bottom of the cage cleaned as well as possible. We came up with a plan to remove the bottom of the cage and leave the top part on a newspaper to catch droppings. She watched the birds while I cleaned the bottoms to make sure there was no paper chewing.

Everything went fine with Hida, but when we went to clean Tsuruchi's cage, the poor guy freaked out and managed to get out before we could get everything situated again. He glided down to the floor and began to hop and flap and run his way to wherever to get away form all that was happening. I sat there on my bed and talked sweetly to him for a few moments, then I was able to lean down and get him to hop into one of my hands without any fear. He stayed there in my hand the entire way back to the cage.

I think I'd call that a win.
