I got Nova on November 21th, 2015. She is a rescue and judging by her eyes and cap, I'd say she's at least six months old. The first couple of days she was very stiff, as could be expected. Music really helped relax her and she favors smooth, low voices on the radio over others.
Yesterday,November 23rd, she started really chirping, flying over to her food bowl and eating while I was in the room.
Today, November 24th, I left the room in the morning and she started calling to me. I think she's starting to consider me part of her flock! How exciting.
Right now, I'm still letting her settle in, but I talk to her every chance I get and respond every time she chirps at me.
I offer an open cage when I'm working in the room, but she has yet to get out. It's probably for the best because I'm not sure how she'd react to being outside of her cage. Nonetheless, she seems more calm with the door open(no pesky bars in the way of viewing me) so I leave it.
November 24th, 12:55 A.M.: Nova had her first fly today! It was a little bumpy as she crashed into every wall and the door. It's okay though. She had a good fly around the room for five minutes before I could easily get her on a perch and back in her cage. Now grinding her beak happily. This it the first time I've ever seen her do either of these things, so it's very exciting!
