Default Playing in the Bath

But not the way you think

Since Vinny has been pacing and not settled, I opted to give him a little out of cage time today. We went to the bathroom, where I covered the taps with a towel (no crash hazard), then I lifted the top off of his QT cage. Didn't take him long to fly out. He's VERY good at flying - didn't crash once. He is lightly clipped so still very agile in the air. I let him do his thing, he seemed to really enjoy himself Sorry about the flash on the photos, I really must replace my broken flash gun!

He landed on the towels


He sat on the window for a bit


He generally had a good ol' flap and then landed in the tub like a duck on a lake (helped along by his giant feet, no doubt). I leaned in and offered him my finger and after a bit of tippy-tappy to and froing, hey ho, just like that




I think that's a bit of spinach stuck to his chest, he clearly wasn't ready for a photoshoot!

He flew around a bit more then landed on the towel rail again. This time, he let my daughter offer a finger for him to sit on


I watched carefully for signs of stress or panic, but there were none. He did a good few laps of the room but never seemed to be super scared. We kept it to a short 5 minute session, just to be sure he wasn't going to get upset.

He stepped from my daughter back to the towel rail, from there back to my finger and then let me put him back in his cage, having already reattached the top after he flew out.

I'm really rather surprised - pleasantly so

Looks like Vinny enjoyed himself. He's very pretty, love his coloring.

I'm glad everything went so well during Vinny's first time out of the cage, and it's good that he is well oriented when it comes to flying.
He truly has the most amazingly beautiful colours!
And by the way, his feet look very normal to me!

I'm really pleased with the way it went, especially that he let me move him on my hand and put him back through the door of his cage. He didn't panic at all. He got tired pretty quickly tho and he's napping now

His feet just look big to me ... but all of him is big compared to Fred, who is a pale-footed pipsqueak by comparison!

He is really pretty, isn't he

I'm glad he's having fun, and getting to know you both. He looks pretty relaxed!

The plan is to do this a couple of times a day, for a few minutes at a time. I'll let the kids all take turns in the bathroom with me. They all spend time with Fred already, and sit next to Vin talking to him and offering millet (which he doesn't take from the hand yet). The Bird Brothers need to get used to everyone so all the kids are in on the game

Vin has found his appetite, and the flying time was probably what he needed, he's calmed down a lot now. Good job too, his pacing was nerve racking.
