just straight onto my finger but i did it from behind first and then when she was on came from the front with the other hand got bite and shrugged it off and carryed on and im sure if you keep at it missy will get there i think i just got lucky as polly wasnt hand reard etherwhat a sweetheart ! if only missy could learn to step up as fast as polly !! haha oh well ! So I see you used the closed hand method and it worked very well? did you first have polly step up on ur closed fist and then get her to step up on ur finger?
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 treatsya 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?
