fid updates :)

so lenny and butch are now back to normal after being separated for a week and a half. butch is getting better. i can get him to get 2 feet on the perch rather than one, i got him to do it 3 times in our last session! though he uses one foot more than 2. i keep working with him and i an seeing progress. though at times he gets into a really deep eye pinning phase and it is hard to get him focused again

lenny is doing great! he comes on my finger again and i have been putting a half perch by the door, parallel to the long one and if he is obsessive enough about the millet he will keep jumping onto it the other morning he just sat on it and hung out with me. when the weather gets cooler, i will take him out in the bathroom. i am still debating if i want to take him out in my room, but just out side the cage. he is used to me 99% of the time when we are doing in the cage work (and i have millet) we just need to work on the out of the cage confidence

and today i was going to clean butch's cage and i looked at the base and decided that it was time to clean that. it hasnt been cleaned since december and has lots of dust from the feathers and the paper that i use for the bedding. so i took out the bottom perch, which all allowed the cage to be flexible enough to pop out of the base. so i washed that and scrubbed it with a clean toothbrush. now my butch-butch is all clean and happy

well thats all for now. i will keep all of you posted on the training when something changes
