Default Skye's Training Journal

Skye has been with us for three weeks now.

He has settled in well and enjoys the company he gets with my Dad. When my Dad is in the family room and just the two of them he looks for cowboy films for him to watch, saying that he likes them.

He has had lots of out of cage time and loves it. He's been getting a little stubborn about going back in now!

But this last weekend he came over to see me on the laptop and has been back every time I've had him out since. I also managed to get him to step up briefly today.
he's making such good progress and is such a sweet boy.
Although I do often accidentally call him 'puppy' as that's what i call my dog all the time.

Aww, Skye seems to be enjoying his new home tremendously and sounds like such a darling little character

Skye is learning to be a real budgie!

He has spent his first day in the budgie room (previously known as my bedroom), observing the others and has been chewing on toys which he has ignored whenever I put any in his cage. He is happily sitting on the rope perch outside the big cage, chewing on one of their chew toys.
As Jay has been so good at instructing Skye, I gave the birds in the cage some millet and put some on top for Jay, hoping that Skye would try some, but he was too bust playing with toys when Jay had some.

Despite having budgie time, Skye still comes over to me for his food and a couple of times when Jay has frightened him with his occasional over excitement, he's come over to the bed to chill out.

I've had a really great day with my flock today.

Since Skye has been socialising with them, he has matured in his budgie ways. Yet, he's also let the others develop their curiosity. As I've previously posted, they have been over to see me quite often now. Today I had Sunny and Jimmy land on my head, albeit briefly and they were also both sitting on my hand and feeding.

That would never have happened without Skye. When I had the others before Skye came up, Jimmy never came over, even though he used to for millet.

Anyway, once Skye was back in the single cage (a bit sad because he spent last night in the bigger cage when the others bunked down together), I progressed to some head scratches with him. He closed his eyes and enjoyed it and then seemed to realise and took a step sideways so I withdrew and let him realise it wasn't anything to be afraid of. I put my hand in again, speaking to him as I moved slowly to where he sat. He didn't move and once I made sure he was comfortable, I gave him a little rub on the side of his face. Again his little eyes closed and this time he didn't step away.
I didn't do it for long and just kept it short and sweet.

I love that Skye is getting the best of both worlds. Interaction with his budgie pals and human company. I think I shall keep him interacting with Jay. I notice whenever I let the group out, she often returns to her cage a long time before the others and stays there. During the time when they're all out like this, Jay usually pays attention to Skye then, so I'm going to use this to my advantage.

Great update

It sounds like the flock is doing wonderfully!
