I didn't know a Hill Mynah is capable of getting upset over a perch. Mine had no issue with that.

Mocha getting a stroke.

HCL,

Neither did I know of that too.
But that was his sleeping perch, high up in corner of cage and I guess he wanted that back to throw that trantrum.
If only he talked to me and tell me of that then it would have been so easy.

Jackie is still wild and only started on that road of trust. You know the next step must be to allow back rubs and handling as precursor to harnessing
and taking him outside.
All in due course and in time.
Warmest regards

Mocha doesn't sleep on a perch. He prefers on the base of the cage. I once harness trained Mocha when he was a chick but he didn't like it. After a month on harness, I gave up because Mocha got frightened when I went near him. It took a while for him to re trust me. So no more outdoor for him.
