So I've had Pip for 1.5 years and Alf for about 3 months.
Neither are scared of me, they are quite used to me and are relaxed and happy.
Before I got Alf, I taught Pip to step up (he took ages before finally doing it) but has only ever stepped up from a certain part of the top of the cage (if I say 'step up', he will run over there ready to step on) and he will let me carry him maybe a few metres to the middle of the room before flying back - he won't let me touch him or anything.
Then I got Alfie, and while he was in quarantine for 6 weeks or so I was determined to get him properly tamed. I took things really slowly, and he was a quick learner so picked it up confidently. He was pretty much fully tame.
I introduced Alfie to my bedroom whilst Pip (and my other bird at the time) wasn't there, so he wouldn't be too overwhelmed. I gave him a day or two before finally allowing him out to fly. Out of the cage, he was great too. He would sit on my finger for ages, let me stroke his back, tummy and kiss him, and even sit on my pillow while I lay on my bed and took selfies with him
But then when I brought Pip back in, things went downhill a bit. Alfie and Pip soon became firm best friends, and were inseparable. Which meant Alfie didn't want anything to do with me anymore
Basically, I got ditched.
I took Pip out again and played with Alfie a bit and he was good again, but each time I did that he was a little less interested. Pip's behaviour hasn't changed at all, he is still as tame as I described before - maybe Alfie deems it uncool to have a human friend now?
My life is really busy, so I know it's best for Pip and Alfie to have each other to play with - but I just wish I could play with Alfie like I used to sometimes.
Do you have any ideas of what I could do?
