It's been a good while since I have posted on this forum. Trickee has been doing really well apart from his chewing habits. He has started coming out of his cage on his own and sitting on his ladder instead of being in the cage all day. He is more relaxed with his surroundings and doesn't get scared easily anymore. He takes a bath weekly and eats well and has a diet plan and also drinks enough water.
Recently however he started deciding instead of trying to chew on things that aren't chewable he went for my wires. I have a bit of wires on my desk most of them are braided cords and others are simple wire cords (he is more interested in the braided ones). I always redirect him if I see him chewing on cords by saying "Hey" or "No" in a assertive voice he sometimes does it again but I repeat and then he stops and goes and does something else. I don't hit him or move him away or anything like that I just use verbal communication to tell him to stop. I had a extra water bottle for when I updated his cage which I haven't done yet. I've noticed he likes chewing on that too so I put it on my desk and filled it with water. He seems to redirect from the wires to instead chewing and drinking out of the water bottle. Although sometimes he does sneak a beak grab here and there he knows as soon as I say "no" that I want him to stop. I also add a "good boy" in after he stops to show that he did the right thing by stopping.
He has also became very vocal especially when I'm talking to him. Sometimes after I tell him "no" or "stop" he chirps at me loudly and runs around. He is basically like a 3 year old in a bird's body. He has been interested in new sounds like when I'm brushing my teeth he tilts his head and watches intently. I also bought him a skateboard for the fun of it. I put him on it today and he jumps right off or when I start moving it slowly he jumps off. I will surely train him how to ride it later on but I'm still working on the basics of him learning how to get around.
His diet is the same thing mostly as for I've been too busy with school to addition some fruits and veggies which I will today since this weekend I'm free. I use plain Kaytee seeds https://goo.gl/3hbZf1
and addition about 2 of 1/4 of a tsp of Zupreem https://goo.gl/NeN8M8
which surprisingly he has started eating without any problem, and I give him dinner at night when I get home from school but my mom later in the day adds the second tsp with the Zupreem pellets. He rarely eats in the morning and if he does he eats the left overs from the night before. Most of the time he is sleepy and just falls asleep in his cage.
As for his living home it's the same cage until I can get another one. However he has plenty of room to run around and plenty of places to perch and things to play with. He has a ladder outside of his cage he sits on he also hangs out. He rarely runs around on the floor and most of the time when I'm home he's on me or on my desk hanging around talking, sleeping, or paying attention to me. His cage door is always left open when I'm gone because my mom pays attention to the cage and he never leaves near his cage when I'm not around. But when we both leave the cage door is shut and he stays inside of the cage.
Most of everything has been really good apart from him occasionally chewing a wire. Also a funny note is he hates my left finger and steps right onto my right finger. It's actually weird how birds can understand and think about stuff like that.
