Give me a few minutes.
You'll see threads moving from one section to another until I get them all in one forum and then I'll merge them, change the title and move them over to the Budgie Pictures section. 😉
you aren't going to believe this- ponchi has a favorite song,, she's a gem. we've made her listen to this song a few times and she always chirps happily to it > < along those adorable "krr krr"
this afternoon too she was hyper and eager to spend time outside her cage so I let her come out to hang out~ we sat on the floor together and listened to music (seems like she likes the floor) and chirped to her favorite song ^^ at some point she flew up my sister's bunk bed and chilled there the rest of her outing (we stayed there for almost an hour) I joined her and I spoke to her most of the time~ ponchi grinded her beak and did all the comfy body language. after some time she explored a little of the huge mattress surface with curiousity and hopped on the edge of the bed.
I tried a few times to very slowly approach my finger towards her and at first she backed away so I did not insist. by the middle of it she wasn't making big eyes when I showed my finger anymore! she didn't mind it coming a little closer. it's when she hopped on the bed edge that I tried again and she finally came on 🥺 I think we sat there together for 20 minutes. she looks even more comfortable with me! I was able to make kissy sounds close to her face while she was closing her eyes and listening~ I have this urge to scratch her little head but I think it's way too soon ^^; I would have loved to take a picture when she looked that adorable but I didn't want to disturb her with a phone in front of her face.
I'd like to stay at this level so she can get used to only this for now! I don't want to rush it and scare her away. I'm very happy with this already! I hope through those simple bonding sessions she'll trust my hand enough to climb on it naturally 😊
I think when 1 week hits I'll try to teach her to step up. well first of all she needs to know that milet is food 😂 I showed it to her again today and she didn't try it. I don't really know what to do about that.. I guess she just needs time~ cuz today I wasn't able to bring her back to her cage (because she was on my finger and wasn't moving, she looked so cute I just couldn't put her back-) but she went back to it herself! O-O on top of it actually. but she did that!! she was looking down on it and really wanted to get inside,, I helped her and that was all for this nice day!
