Default End of quarantine worries

Let me preface by saying that I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this post.

Next Tuesday is the end of Toki's quarantine period. I'm a little worried about moving her into the new cage as she doesn't seem to have really settled in yet. She still is terrified, and flutters around when I feed her & clean the cage. I feel like I messed up with her because Greyjoy was so easy I just expected she would settle in like he did. I don't really know how I'll move her without holding her bodily & I'm afraid that will damage our relationship. I'm also afraid that meeting a new bird may be a little much for her right now.

this is the cage I bought for them. I planned to put them each in their section and see how it goes. If all is well then I can remove the divider & continue to watch them. Is this really foolish? I don't want to introduce them out in the open since Greyjoy just got his new wings and hasn't flown yet & Toki is too skittish to not be caged. It was my hope that seeing Greyjoy & I interact would help calm her but since she's never settled in I'm wondering if I should delay the big move and work more on bonding with her. Maybe bring her cage into Grey's room for a while before moving them. Or perhaps I just get them in the new cage and see how it goes. Any advice is appreciated. Sorry for the long post.

Hi Kristina!

Don't worry--things will be just fine. Start by moving their cages into the same room for a few days, and if they react positively, you can transfer them into the big cage with the divider.

To put Toki into her side of the cage, first transfer all her food and water into her side, as well as her favourite toys and all her perches except for one. You can even put a nice millet spray just out of reach in the new cage! Then, raise her current cage to the level of the other cage door and let her hop into the new cage on her own time. Chances are, she will see her familiar things and will eventually get hungry/thirsty and she will go in without a problem

I hope everything goes well! Please keep us posted

Thank you, I appreciate your thoughtful solution, it sounds perfect for this situation. As soon as she's settled I'm chucking her old cage, we decided it was not suitable even for quarantine, I think she will thrive in a bigger space & hopefully start to get comfortable.

Kristina,

Star has given you perfect advice -- that is the way I've moved my birds from one cage to another and it always worked great for me.

I hope little Toki loves her new space and I'm sure she'll settle in given some time.

Best wishes!
