Landing on the roof

Guys hope everyone having good time with their taklas

I still can't keep my taklas away from landing on my roof.

I tried with 3 sets ( 1 set at a time) of new young pair of Takla ( keeping the adults locked in side) but unfortunately after flying for the first time even though I realise few dropper I the ground they just keep on landing on my roof
and that's it every time I let them out after finishing their fight they would land on the roof.

My back yard is quite small so the loft landing area is about 10 feet away from my house and my is quite higher then normal houses

I have other birds landing on the roof but they come down straightway as soon as call them
Only taklas are giving me hard time every time they try to come down they would start tumbling and clapping then go back to the same place again.

They would do this all the time if they can't make it before sun set then they stay out all night
And we all know what happenes (soon or later) if they spend the night out side

I have lost previous 2 sets of young when they are about 4 months old
Accept for landing on the roof I would say they are very good flyer and very good performer too

Can someone give me some advice on this I would really appreciate

Hi Sheikh,
Starving them is the only solution I know...
The rookies will land,where they can easily land in first times.
No food for them 24 hrs before training policy is an option.
Use the droppers after 2-3 minutes of training.
Once they adjusted to land in target, continue training as usual...
Good luck...

Hi khalid
You probably wondering how is my roof landers are doing
They are still landing on the roof
But I think I have solve the problem.

I have made an 6 inch wide stairs coming down from my house roof to loft landing board
Now they just land on my roof and walk/jump ( without flying) down to the loft trap door and go in side the loft.

Because I have a small back yard and the loft is close to the house
That's way they prefer to land on higher place instead of loft top

Wish me good luck so that the young ones also follow the the adults
and come home without any problem.

Coz I love my birds and when I see them struggling to come down and then go missing
It's break my heart
