Hi all. I've had Bert and Ernie in the avairy for about four weeks now and they seem pretty happy. They sometimes hide in the corner or fly over me when I go in there. I havn't needed to catch them yet and therefor have not done so. Ernie sometimes eats millet out of my hand, but Bert wont. They still hiss at me when I try and put my hand near them. My question is, do I catch them (with a net or my hands) and try and tame them, or let them be. I'm worried if I do catch them, they'll hate me :confused: I'd love them to sit on me when I go in, but am willing to be very patient and let it happen in its own time. If I need to take them to the vet, I'll obviously need to catch them, but don't want to do it often if it will work against our future relationship :blush: Any advice would be awsome. Thanks all. maesie xxx

Thanks everybody for your advice... So I guess I'll just increase my time in the avairy and do more hand feeding. I know it will be a slow process, so I'll just have to be patient. Ernie ate grass out of my hand tonite too :D. I agree Bea, I think Ernie will be the first to tame down, and Bert will follow eventually. Thanks all :blush: maesie xxx
