Lennie and the Long Perch

Recently, to encourage Perry & Lennie to explore a bit more outside their comfort zone, I rigged up a long perch between the two cages.

As the cages are both the same & alongside each other, when their main, middle doors are open, it lends itself to having a perch connecting across them.  It just needed to be a long perch, which fortunately I have.  Once in place, Perry & Lennie naturally ignored it, but at least were not scared of it.  Extra encouragement was needed, so I pegged some seeding grass to it.  Eventually, Lennie decided it was worth braving this new perch for the treat.

When I saw him jump on the perch, I grabbed the camera & filmed:

 

As you can see there was the obligatory faffing about, a brief chew of the prize, followed by tucking into grass nearer to him!

    Next, you need to teach him to carry it round, like Bosco the dog!
