Polly is gorgeous :love:

Interesting as my Lucky was the same and she tamed up quicker then the rest
dont get me wrong she still isnt tame as yet bet getting there and over such a short period of time its amazing how far have you got with lucky

ya Missy isn't hand reared as well... She doesn't run away from my hand until it is really close from her. I don't really ever have a chance that she is turned around but Would I jus act like my fingers a perch?

pritty much the idea yes you could use a perch get her on that then try and get her on your hand no harm in trying lots of praise aswell and treats if she gets it right i havent used treats yet but will be buying some apple tomorrow for treats
