In a previous thread Dave had mentioned the the p'lets like hemp seeds. Last time I was at the store I picked some up. Wellll.... something I did not anticipate happened: Luna was scared to take a seed out of my fingers.
I've spent months feeding her things from my fingers, but they'd all been larger things she could take bites from. Like an avi-cake, 1" piece of millet, etc. And never ever has she fallen for attempted food bribery to calmly get on my hand (we must do that work the traditional way!). So when I showed her this tiny speck in my finger tips, she took one look and ran away all nutso like it was day 1. No way did she want it THAT badly!
Fortunately she trusts me a lot more than on the real day 1, so progress in her "bravery" was much faster. I had to start again working from outside the cage. Since she's learned that's most definitely safe now, it went quickly, and now we're on to the inside of the cage. Still working on it, and I even modeled it for her with my linnie (a non-food oriented bird who I discovered will literally run over for them!), but she will come and take them sometimes now, as long as I'm patient and hold my hand very still. Sometimes I drop them before she gets it, but that doesn't seem to bother her
So, THANKS DAVE (x2!) for the hemp seed referral!!
