how long are your sessions with him? you might try more sessions but shorter ones so mango doesn't think going in the cage means he'll be stuck there until the next day. Or maybe just mix it up a little so sometimes you put Mango back and let him out again soon.Hello Avians! A little update since i last talked about Mango. Mango has been happy ever since i put in more foraging toys in. I have build up a fence on my balcony so it could fly around without me worrying and it allow Mango to excerise a bit.
On another note, I am having trouble with putting it back into its cage when it's time to go home. It constantly clings on to me and does not want to go home. Even if i manage to put it home, after i close the cage door, Mango would act very franctic/ crazy. It would walk up and down, climb here and there hastily trying to find a way out of the cage just to get near me. I have tried looking up solutions on Youtube but to no avail. I have tried putting its favourite treat inside the cage, but no matter what i do, it will still want to come out and stick around me. I have tried positive reinforcement but it does not work too. What should I do to make it want to be comfortable to go back home?
these days we let ours out for many hours so he's usually tired by the time we need to put him in, and he's ready for his treat.
that said when we first got him he'd get frantic a little after the door was closed and and asked to come out right away. that behavior is largely gone now. we used that model of letting him in and out for short sessions to make him worry less about going in.
