so I’ve posted before asking about hand training advice and lo and behold persistence really is the best advice . 0B0144B3-26F9-4555-81CD-33ED3E2EA015.jpeg
She’s still not treat motivated as I hoped but she now happily crunches on some millet in my hand ( I even get some happy wiggle dances ). She doesn’t like to get to far from the cage still, but I can only hope that one day she’ll enjoy relaxing with me as I work .

Another update , so a little bit of a set back I have a sister who was a little bit to persistent in trying to have Yuki step up to her hand (don’t worry I did tell her calm it down) and now Yuki is once again wary of hands. But perch training is going great she responds to her name and willingly flys to a held dowel up to four-ish feet away . I wanted to add a video but it won’t upload so instead new toy picture 995ECDF3-FA4A-44D8-AF1F-AE07CABE2781.jpeg

Tell your Sis, slow & @ Yuki's pave. The slower horse wins the race, & Yuki will like & respect her more.

I'm so happy that you have found a work around for Yuki, in the meantime. I bet she's treat motivated, you just haven't found the right treat yet!
