I recently had an amazon that would not strike for anything (I know...unbelievable but true). It wouldn't even strike at my hands, just crawled onto it if I tried to tease, chase, offer or anything else. It had not taken a meal since it was born in August. By November I was ready to freeze it as it was getting very thin. As a last ditch, I took the very hot pinky (minus the front legs and with the skull crushed) and hit the baby over the head. By the third smack the mouth started opening and it grabbed. I got it to eat and now I'm only needing to hit it once or twice. I also found it ate more rapidly if it was draped over the side of the tub. Perched chondros are not an issue, but amazons tend to split their time between the bottom of the tub and the perches. Most prefer to eat while hanging though.
