I whistle with my lips and shake the feed can, you can use a bought whistle I guess, or you can call them, just use the same call everytime.

Dont toss them the first time, I just open the flight pens and let them go out on there own, dont scare them out, this will cause them to get lost, let them go out in the flight pens to settle in before letting them out, at least 3 - 4 weeks for young birds, they need to look around and settle in before flying. once they have been out a few times loft flying then you can take them out a short distance.

Whistle, can of seed, I use a cowbell, hog call. It doesn't matter what you use as long as you are consistant. Use it everytime you feed. After the birds loft fly a couple of times catch them and release them in sight of the loft. Do it while they are hungry and call them as soon as you release them. They will learn if they want to eat.
