Default New Parakeet

Hi all!

I just brought home a sweet little 6 mo old parakeet named annie. I had a parrotlet before Annie, (and he just wouldn’t tame as he was from an abused home originally) and within 20 minutes annie was stepping up, playing with me, cuddling in my hair, etc. I just read that you all recommend giving them a few weeks to settle in, but she seems to be doing great. her heart rate is normal, not shaking or nervous, showing signs of happiness, and is not biting at all. she overall seems VERY stress free and is just enjoying the ride. It’s recommended you start working with parrotlets as soon as you get them because they’re stubborn little boogers. Any advice? Thanks
