I like to get the babies to fly up on my hands and arms at play time. I just motion for them to come up with a hand gesture. Or if they peck to hard when asking for a treat I tell them no and they stop. But I can point at any of my birds and motion for it to come with one finger and it comes. I need them to be ok with me picking them up and handling them at all ages so they will not hurt me. When I do pick up the larger birds they don't even kick. If they get scared or startled I tell them it's ok and they relax. When I give them a new food I tell them it's good and they eat it. My BBB hen died today. I had asked my son to come this weekend to help me process her but she did not make it. I saw her breast drop yesterday and knew it would not be long. She had a good life I will miss her.
