Hi all! I'm trying not to be an overreactive mama, but can you tell me if this is normal? We've had Frost for about a month now and he's still generally very timid and quiet around us. We normally keep his cage in my youngest son's room and we'll hear him chirping and singing throughout the day, but when we go in he usually gets very quiet. We always leave classical music on for him when we're gone. This morning we decided to move his cage into our family room/kitchen area so he can be around us more. I have his cage sitting in a bay window in the dining area. I am cooking a breakfast casserole in the oven, so I have the kitchen windows open. I just closed the one right next to him in case he was getting cold. Anyway, he has hardly stopped chirping since I brought him down! And he's so active, jumping from perch to perch (not frantically -- he'll sit for a few minutes on one perch then jump to another) and he's even been hanging upside down from the top of his cage, which we've NEVER seen him do! Do you think he's agitated or upset? Or is he just really happy? He can't see outside from where he normally is, so maybe he's just really enjoying the change of scenery? And he hasn't let us touch him yet, so he hasn't been out of his cage.

Just for clarification -- I used a stainless steel skillet to fry sausage and am now cooking the casserole in a glass dish in my oven, so I don't think there would be any harmful fumes that would be causing him to act like this, would there?

Frost is simply ecstatic and very thankful that he's finally being included as part of the family!
His behavior is because he's happy and excited and wants everyone to know it.

Having Frost in a part of the house where he can be included and interacted with, (by talking to him) is important for his emotional health and well-being.

Be sure there are no drafts from the window that will cause him to become chilled.

We originally put him in my son's room because we have two dogs. They're very sweet but they're retrievers and we just cannot trust them when we're not here to watch. I think, though, that maybe we can start just bringing Frost down when we get home so we can interact more with him. We do go in and talk to him often, but still, I think this is so much better for him. Thank you for putting my mind at ease! We love that he seems so much happier now!! ?

It is important that the dogs not be allowed in the room with Frost so they should be put in a different room or outdoors when you have Frost's cage in the family area.

Obviously, the dogs should never be allowed in your younger son's room when Frost's cage is in there.
