Hello everyone, my baby English Budgie Potus is now 10 weeks old. We have had him for 2 weeks now. He steps up readily and doesn't mind being handled. When he is out of his cage, approximately 4-5 hours a day, he either perches on my hand, his play gym, or my computer while I am on it. He looks at me when I talk to him and allows me to rub his head and pet him. So my question is: I have offered him numerous toys and he takes not one bit of interest in them or in playing at all. He just sits wherever he is perched like a little bump and watches us unless he is eating. He only sings if he hears a recording of other birds. Is this just because he is young and new to our family? Am I expecting too much too soon? Thank you for any advice!
Well thank you FaeryBee! I never realized I had to actually TEACH him to play! I have four daughters but he is my first and only feathered baby.. I'll start reading up on the clicker training! Thank you so much!
