We are still working on step up and socializing. When in or on his cage he still backs away from my hand but if he flies off the cage and lands on the floor he will look up at me with those big wide eyes saying 'help me mom' and then is more than willing to step up onto my hand. Today he even sat still on my hand for about 5 minutes and let me scratch his head so I guess we are making progess.

Well that sounds like good progress.     Does he see you interacting with Adam?   I swear sometimes jealousy works better than anything else I can think of.

Today Chante flew off his cage and when he stepped up onto my hand I sat down with him in my lap and he let me give him head and neck scritches for quite a while. He then tried to fly off and when he stepped onto my hand he flew off again right into Adam's open cage door, Adam was perched on top of the door. Well Adam looked not happy over this and started to go back into the cage all fluffed up looking. It took a minute or two but I was able to get Chante out while a puffed up Adam was hissing at him and my hand when it got too close to Adam. Now Chante is sitting on his cage, Adam on his and all is peacefull - except my green cheek conure is trying to eat my computer

Yep, got to be carefull about that. A oppen cage that's not your own is a big draw for any bird and the owner is usually not to happy about a stranger in HIS house. The House Finch we rescued would not leave Nerd or his cage alone, much to the regret of her toes and foot
She lost the end of two toes when she kept hanging out on his cage and Nerd decided she was evil and needed to be slowly witteld down to nothing one part at a time. She was fast and hard to catch when she snuck out and bothered him. She also ended up in his cage once and I did the same but I had to grab him while he growled and tried to bite and get away and grab her with the other hand  :shocking:
She's lucky she survived and Nerd was pretty put out too.

A breakthrough yesterday. Adam flew over to Chante's cage and they both peacefully coexisted on top for a long time, only one minor flare up where Chante hissed at Adam, Adam turned around all fluffed up and Chante ran to the other side of the cage. They even both got showers up there because I was vacuuming and both boys diod the wings spread, tail spread dance

More progress. Both boys are on top of Chante's cage, I looked over and Adam was preening Chnate's head and face!
