Just open the window/door and let them come out on their own. Do not scare them, do not MAKE them come out. Just stand back, keep an eye out for hawks, cats......what ever you have around there and let them venture out on their own. Make sure they are hungry. If they have eaten today, then don't let them out.how do you release a bird for the first time? do you just open the door and let it out or throw it in the air from a distance from the loft. i am getting ready to let go my first pair and dont know what to do . they know how to trap already.
Please bear in mind that this is MY opinion, so take it for what it's worth. First of all, 3 days isn't long enough for trap training. Second, you do not want to release those birds to the outside until they are trapping when YOU want them to trap. Not when THEY want to trap. If you call them and they are in the settling cage and won't trap in right away, then don't turn them loose. They are being fed too much I expect.they are 5 weeks old and have been trapping for about 3 days i am going to let them out next week though... when i am training them to trap i have a cage in front of the trap door and then after about 2 hours they trap. they know how to trap its just that i think they like it up in the cage(nice and breezy get a better scenery) so when i look they are always lying down "chillin' " lol but i guess after a while they get bored and trap. instead of opening the loft door should i put them in the "trap cage" and open the cage to the outside instead?
