Message: Posted by: Carron (Aug 24, 2004 12:29PM)
Well yeah I have a canary who is about 1 year old now he is very frightened of hands and try as I might to train him I just cant, jus to see if it was me I took a gag plastic hand and placed it in the middle of the floor with his favorite, lettuce on it and he did'nt go near it. But he seems fine to sit on my head or my legs as long as my hands are covered up, any help?
Cheers
Tom

Try a Mitten...maybe it's the fingers that freak him out...use a Red mitten (hide the thumb.) ????
