I will try doing that as I have trained them to come to the door when I make a clicking noise, well Leo mostly responds to that and the others follow so hopefully it will work as Milo and Monty just dart when I come near the cage.

I just tried doing it right now and well they didn't come out I guess as it's quite big and it won't fit through the door, Leo did show interest in it and Milo and Monty took refuge into a hammock.

Thank you very much, you won't believe how much these three little handsome men have brightened up my life already! I love them all dearly and they seem to have very different personalities.

Leo being the smallest, literally over half the size of his brothers but he seems to have the biggest heart! He's such a sweetheart and loves cuddles, he loves snugglinginto the pockets of my hoodie.

Milo being the very shy and timid one he seems to be very gentle though, when I offer him a treat he sniffs it for a bit before he slowly and gently takes it from me, I can already tell he will be the gentle, sleepy and lazy one out of them.

Monty being the largest and quite boisterous one out of them all, however him and Leo seem to bicker about who's boss every now and again. He's always first to get his treat, quickly snatching it and running off with it so the other boys can't take it. However he is the biggest snuggle bug, he loves having his brothers snuggling up to him and he seems to really enjoy the big leopard print hammock, I think it has become his "spot".

Sounds like you are starting to have a really good bond with them. I am sure they will get more confident with you as they settle in.

I just gave them a few treats just now after I came home from work and I put my hand instead of running away like Milo and Monty normally do they came up to investigate and Monty ended up going up my arm! However they were nipping a bit on my hand that had no treats on but I'm sure we'll get there.

Here's a few photos of the cheeky trio.
