    Kaks are extreamly active so keep training sessions short 10 minutes per session four or five times a day i will tag @Roz for her view

    You can get a feel when they are interested and want to learn and interact, my kak that I trained loved me whistling songs to him and in return he would sit on my hand, however as said above his attention span was very short and flying around was his favourite thing to do.

    Agree with keeping formal training sessions very short. A few seconds here, half a minute there. But also remember that every interaction you have with them is taming/training. It might be interaction from afar as you go about the housework, whistling, speaking, singing etc. It might be closer interaction - you coming up to the cage and talking to them, offering food, cleaning them out. Monitor them all the time... are they comfortable when you approach the cage? If not, see how you can change your own behaviour to keep their body language relaxed. It might be approaching slower, lower, etc. They look like the cutest little birds in your avatar!

    Thanks Roz, yes they are cute .... they do feed from my hand and will happily hop on and off without food, I guess it's just patience and time to start teaching step up etc. Xx
