I've had two parakeets for around six months now, and they're quite comfortable with me. When I change their food and water, they'll fly to the back of the cage, and sometimes they won't move at all. I'm now thinking of hand-training them. The problem is, the cage they're in has only one, long perch, fixed onto the sides.
I read that you're supposed to approach them with a perch, but how do I do it? I've tried approaching Sora (one of my parakeets)with my finger, and she doesn't mind it. But I can't get her to hop on.
