Recall challenge

I want to set up a forum wide challenge!On flight recall.

I don't know how many times Ice has flown from me, and i want her to come back but she won't.

I'm wanting to try to get people together to share the experiences of the training. And to share techniques

If no one wants to try, I will just update on her training.

Anyone want to join me?

Mine will fly to me just over a short distance but only cause they're clipped. My hawk will fly from like a mile away though hahahah

I'm actually thinking that because it is summer now, there are doors sometimes left open because my family is oblivious to what I tell them and they leave the doors open any way and ice flys downstairs all the time even though she isn't supposed to.

This recall thing may have to wait, it isn't safe for her to be flying like a nut ball around the house.

What do you guys think?

I don't know if it's worth it. One really good idea might be to keep her flying in one room (your bedroom or something)to you until you have it going really well and THEN fly her in other rooms and stuff. That way if she was to get out there is always the possibility she could fly back to you if she has a hand signal or whistle etc etc? If you clip her, she'd have to start all over again and then you'd be in the same situation next year

I say, keep her flighted. Be careful where you fly her! Only ever fly her in enclosed rooms. Then when the time comes let her fly around the house with you supervising obviously and get her flying to you. Then when spring and summer come back around you can have some idea of how she'd act outside

this is a very good idea door are left open here to. dusty is not flighted yet and he is in the living room i plan to do this to in my room with the door shut. i am also going to work with him coming to me with his harness on. but that will be when his flight feathers come in

Thank you all for your help!
I always train in my room, no where else.. She doesn't concentrate anywhere else.LOL

But I'm talking about when she has out of cage times , and she is just chilling other cage, if she gets excited or spooked she books it down stairs. And it just isnt safe for her down there in the summer

I would totally do this once Duke's wings have come in, he already tries to fly to me, and I have a behaviour he does with me where I can call him to a place on the couch, give him the cue, and he hops up onto my hand. (And no, the cue isnt step up, he jumps up lol)

So today I taught Phoenix to fly to where I point which he picked up pretty quickly basically id point n tell him "fly to...." the first few times he didn't get it so I placed him where I wanted him n gave him appraisal after a few more times he understood that I wanted him to fly to where I pointed. He still has not flown to me but if I try to get him to fly in the living room he'll u turn and come to me so I've been rewarding him for flying to me so that when he feels more confident in his flying abilities he'll fly to me from his cage n stuff. Pointing to the destination and tons of appraisal works wonders he gets soo excited he'll puff up his chest like he's king of the world and then he says "what a good boy Phoenix, your so cute" lol guess he likes to praise himself lol
