I've introduced Bonzai... Now three years old. Blind. Pretty much flightless. And very sensitive. He didn't like being touched.

I've been working on Gentle Beak. And petting him on the back. Steps from one finger to another. Even crawling through the loop in my fingers.

Today I nearly scritched his neck!! After petting and playing with his bill, I held a finger on his shoulder and neck. Even started to work my finger under his feathers.

Very slowly I'm working toward scritches.

From what everyone says, scritching can be so satisfying for him. I'm hoping for big success in bonding with him.

:)

Great job for both of you. I too sneak my hand aroung Hueys neck and he just loves it. He turns his head around like Linda Blair and moves his head to where my finger should be.

Sounds like you are doing great with Bonzai.

Was Bonzai born blind?
