I have had Greyjoy for 13 days today, one day short of two weeks, and it's safe to say he is hand tamed. This sweet bird has amazed me from the get go, but I am positively ecstatic at where we are today!
Yesterday he stepped on my hand for the very first time. I let him eat all the millet he wanted and we hung out for about 5 minutes like that. It was the turning point. Today he has jumped from the perch to my hand walked on my hand, flown to my hand. He's let me touch his beak and pet his belly. SQUEEEE! I can hardly contain it. He's surpassed my wildest expectations!
To be honest it's been 13 days of hard work, patients and self discovery. We are going to celebrate two weeks together tomorrow by having his very first out of cage time.
Congratulations! That's wonderful to hear.
I'm surprised Greyjoy has adapted so well to his new home in such a short time, he clearly loves you very much.
You've done a great job with him and considering it hasn't even been two weeks, that is a very very significant milestone.
Awesome job to both you and your gorgeous boy Greyjoy!
and Princess Mallorn!
Thank you to Deb for her wonderful Faery magic
