    One day Rupert will trust himself enough to fly to me... but for now we are working on jumps.



    Sound DOWN unless you want your eardrums blown out by me talking.

    You just have to keep at it! Rupert would barely trust himself to hop even a couple of inches at first. Now he's to the stage where he needs one wing flap. :roflmao:

    Once they learn to fly to you... it's like ... you can't get away from them! # 1 reason I put sheer curtains up in Rockets room to keep him from following me around the house and out of the faucet while I'm washing dishes! Ruby is the same way!

    Oh that was so cute. Such an accurate jump done with confidence:)

    Can’t wait to see him progress. So do you just move the perch a little further away from time to time so he has to jump a little further?

    Mhm! Once he's confident with a certain distance, I put the perch further away.

    He was not having this jump at all. He'd been doing great and then with this last one, he kept trying to give his "handshake" to the colorful perch next to him... or stepping on to it... or spinning around in a circle. This one jump took like 3 minutes of coaxing. Before then, he was jumping consistently each time.

    Oh I know. I'm expecting him to fly at me when he's angry with me or something. Hopefully not though!
