Update!

Max is officually doing loop! Im going to keep at it for a bit longer to be sure he has it down this time.

Ziggy was 20 diffrent kinds of excited tonight. We had to get playing the 'cant cach me' game but he was all over targeting in front and when he wasnt sure what to target, target everything!

Maru is targeting but not sure about what to do for turn around.

Pip made a small step toward loop.

Star was rather standoffish again so we focused more on trust and review.

Update!

Max is doing loop consistently. Was to busy last week to desensitize Max to the cat toy ball, I plan om doing that over the next few days because you know otherwise he will nope for weeks durring training.

Ziggy was all for targeting in front (part 1 of the process toward loop) but has his usual short attention span.

Pip isnt sure about the part 1 to loop still

Maru will kinda target but not work with me on the first half of loop...

Star at least was willing to work with me for a change. She targeted, turned around, worked on loop a little and step up (and i didnt get bit!)

...i have a cobalt Casanova working on driving yellow chicken crazy... as Maru watches on from a safe distance...-sigh-

So Stardust has taken to biting her cage bars and pulling making a *pling* sound. She typically spends part of her day upside down on the devider doing this. This budgie mommy's favorite is when she does this while in her bedtime cage. I wake up to the *pling.pling.pling* >.< I am not a fan but can deal. Just not sure where this came from with her.

Meanwile i have a cobalt who is just asking to get his toes nipped. See you all next week!

Update from Wednesday

We did ckicker train this week but life stuff has been keeping me busy. Anyway Max has moved onto targeting on flat surfaces since he still isnt sure about the whole cat toy ball not eating him thing.

Ziggy is still working on the targeting in front.

Maru made progress! I switched up how I convince him to turn on the perch. Instead of applying pressure to his tail i hold thr target behind him and sometimes he will turn to face it...not always but it's a start.

I worry about pip pip. He will target in front and a bit below for loop but im not sure if he is just taking his time to learn it all or if he cant see the target.

Star did some work on loop but would spend long moments just looking at the stick. Eventually we switched to step up. Got a rare picture of her on my hand. She is such a skittish little thing and I doubt she will ever truely get past that and that's ok. My little girl might be a headache at times but we still adore her.

Happy new year all!

Got back to clicker training now that holidays falling on Wednesday's are done.

Max is kinda following the target on a flat surface but isnt so sure about the ball. He isn't afraid of it but isnt ready to target it ether.

Maru is still working on turn around.

Pip is working on loop.
Ziggy is working on loop.
And star is working on loop...

We did send in samples from the flock for the part 2 test for AGY and it came back positive :c we are on round 2 of water meds. We will test again at the end of the month. If THAT comes back positive we will test individually to sort out who has da koodies, quarentine and treat individually. Thats not something im keen on doing both from a financial perspective and if it is more than one of then, treating multiple birds with oral meds twice a day... but we will do what we need to do. The issue is while we know Max had AGY he is well known for feeding star through the cage bars (they are kept seperate but their love finds a way). Meanwhile Max has been hosed with ziggy, or pip, or currently Maru (they get along surprisingly well if Max doesn't get overly passionate in Marus dirrection).
TLDR i cannot say with confidence that Max is the only one in the flock with koodies. I couldnt even say that when he was originally diagnosed, thus the original treat the whole flock thing. The samples sent were not just from Max.
We will see how this round of meds goes.

Sorry to hear about the tests being positive, what is being used in the water? Is the oral med Amphotericin B?
I know the stress of giving meds I currently am giving 18 doses daily of various meds, to several of my birds half in the am and half pm. Hope all works out well for you.

So sorry to hear about the AGY.
Have you considered using the Sodium Benzoate treatment in addition to the medication your Avian Vet has prescribed?

AGY - Sodium Benzoate
