So Jewel only arrived Friday afternoon I did see him eat that evening but since has been quietly sat, in the sake spot just staring. I've been sat next to the cage just saying, "hello Jewel, pretty Jewel, pretty birdie" every now and then. Just now I've seen him preen for the first time since he arrived and when he finished I talked to him again and he was crouched down, cocking his head towards me. Then he started chirping back to me! it's lovely to hear his little twitters and chirping, he's now been doing it for about 5 mins or so.
Such a silly thing to be excited about
sounds wonderful.jewel is getting more comfy and begin to communicate with you with chirps.perhaps soon a song or two as well.that's what my Gracie does each day we chirp and chat.blessings and keep us posted.
