Well Oz finally is eating and adjusting to her home
. She seems to be settling in as she chips much more now and I also notice 2 odd habits.........
1, seems she eats throughout the day and since she finally is eating regularly I notice that every night for the past 5 nights, she eats at 750 to 8 pm every night........ I wonder if she senses the sunset and wants to eat???
and the 2nd thing is her willingness ( or lack thereof) to want to come out and socialize. I clean her cage daily and when I do I invite her out and she just doesn't want to
...............But, If I stick my hand in she comes to me, hops on and nibbles on my fingers (lightly) like shes playing....
she seems to like it when we talk baby talk to her and she likes to have her chest rubbed alot.. but she just does not like to come out and when she does she wont sit still.But when she is in her cage it is a different story as she loves the attention! If I stick my finger in to get her she hops on and then off on another perch and then waits for me to offer her to hop on again and she does!!!
... it seems like a playful game she likes but she just doesn't like to perch on our shoulder or chair ir anywhere accept her cage. She has a elaborate cage nicely done and perhaps thats why?? >>>>>>> she is spoiled!!:argh:
Our goal is to try to get her to want to come out sit with us and be out of her home so far no luck........... any ideas???
I am very grateful though when I stick my finger in her home she welcomes it and loves the chest rub thing............ she even opens her wings a bit so we rub there too.......... I would however, like her to want to socialize outside of her home... Could this be a age thing?? she is about 4 months old and we got her at a local pet store and I suspect she is a semi-tame budgie not hand fed...... Thanks everyone
