    [​IMG] Welcome! [​IMG] your birds are awesome, beeeautiful!

    For the safety and well-being of your arm, my vid for you:

    the video is a little old, from a hot summer day, but we still do this.

    Good idea? My shoulder cannot tolerate any more of their ape-like grawping onto me for snacks. So I worked within their pecking order and discovered they can await the magic of their name, from top of pecking order on down, then utilize better manners to gingerly land on an outstretched hand, say hallo eye to eye, THEN gorge on the snack bucket in my other hand.

    Two of ours don't even want the snack. They just pop up to their name, do the "Hey Hello There" eye to eye smile, then fly back down. I think they're hoping for cheese instead of the seed bucket. That, and their pecking order social structure really is severe. They monkey-see-monkey-do in order avoid being pecked at by their peers.

    I bet you can work it. Your birdies seem very happily sociable with you and yours! They quickly learn to await their name, and will politely pretend to pick at nothing on the ground awaiting the name-cue to fly on up. Saves injury and insult on both parts!
