If any of you have seen my thread about Connie in the Training Journals section, you know that she and Freddy are good roommates but not the best of friends. Connie has preferred to keep to herself and is addicted to mirrors. About a week ago I removed all mirror toys from the cage, but I didn't notice much of a difference at first. However I was excited to see today that Connie is letting Freddy feed her!
(She was still a little wet from a bath)
Connie got into what looked like a mating position as well, but Freddy didn't try to mate with her. He is about 9 months old. I don't ever want them to breed. Connie is not in breeding condition now - her cere turned from brown to white during quarantine.
I'm so happy to see some interaction between the two. As a bonus, this could be a way for Connie to get some veggies . She happily eats pellets and sprouts but not veggies. Freddy eats the veggies I clip to the cage bars.
That's really good to know and I'm glad that Connie is now receptive to Freddy and they are fast becoming best friends!
This is a prime example of how detrimental mirrors and mirrored toys can be when given full access on a cage.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
