I also put a small bamboo plank down there because the bottom is wire and I thought he might like to stand on something flat sometimes. He spends a lot of time playing down there. Maybe you could put some treats in the bottom part to encourage her to explore?

I agree with Starlingwings they can just be ridiculously skittish about new things, even toys or delicious foods. I gave my budgie a swing and he was afraid of it for so long I nearly took it out... but now it's his best friend, he sleeps on it, and (apparently) I'm not allowed to touch it.

She's beautiful I'm sure she loves her huge cage even though she doesn't know quite what do with all the space yet

When you get a new little friend for her, make sure to quarantine him in a separate cage (it doesn't have to be huge since they'll be living in her big one) for 4-5 weeks to prevent the spread of hidden illnesses. When you introduce them, it should be in a neutral area so she doesn't get territorial, and you can rearrange the cage go help, as well.

Keep us posted and we'd love to see more of her What's her name?

She's Little Miss Sparkles (aka Sparky lol).

I'm planning to get her friend in a few weeks and keep him in another room. Is that ok or should they be in the same room so they can see each other from a distance? I'm moving to a new apartment with a living room and one bedroom in a couple of weeks so space is limited. Her cage is in the living room. Should I introduce them in the bedroom?
