i feel good!

so Lenny's training has taken the next step! he will let me touch his belly for millet. he still is unsure of the whole thing but i can do it!! also he eventually got this habbit of touching my finger, so i took that and so now if i say "kiss" he will touch my finger! ooh it is so cute! oh i cant wait until he is tame!
Butch on the other hand will only sometimes eat millet from me. i believe he secretly loves mirrors and was in a home with a small kid- maybe he was grabbed? or his tail was pulled ( he hate when his tail touches the cage). I'm sure when lenny comes out he will come around. he also gets in this 'trance' while touching the perch with his beak and his eyes get big and small O_o

I love the feeling of accomplishment!!

That's great progress. I've never started with touching them, always gone for stepping up outside the cage hehe.
