PoseidonBird is on a distinguished road
Red face Atlas's training journal

So a little while back my precious Poseidon died. I don't know why he died but he did. My other bird got sick but then got better again which brought me and him closer but because he was an abused bird, he still doesn't like me much.
Well, before my other bird died, i had bought my mother a beautiful albino parakeet which we had originally named Atlas after the god who held up the world. It fit him well and i loved the name. After i lost my bird however i almost lost all feeling for all my other animals. I know this sounds a bit harsh but i was depressed and i wasn't thinking clearly. I hadn't had my bird long but he was my best friend.
My other bird just doesn't seem to want to trust me very well and i wasn't liking the way my mom was taking care of Atlas so i thought to myself, why not just make him my bird instead? She had decided to name him Calyptso, fed him mainly seed, gave him a mirror and never tried to talk to him to make him more use to people.
Well just tonight i told her i wanted him. I have now taken him up to my room and he seemed to be scared but he seemed to have calmed down some when i read a book to him. i even took his mirror out of his cage and added a ladder with a bell on it.
I'm going to try my best not to lose this birds trust and i will try my best to allow him to trust me without scaring him. Any tips or tricks on this would help greatly because i messed it up with my other bird and never got to fix it before he died :'(
Anyway everyone please welcome my new addition, Atlas

Hi Jesse, Having taken over the care and welfare of Atlas will help heal your sadness hopefully.
please remember budgies are very prone to some getting sick and we do not know why or how this happens.
Atlas needs to have his cage covered on three sides, this will help him feel safe and secure in his home. offer him some fresh foods as well as seed, pellets, e.t.c.
Here are some links that may be of help to you.https://talkbudgies.com/articles-budg...-training.html

Congratulations on your new little one, Jesse!

Atlas sounds very handsome. Cathy has given you some great links and advice. The most important thing to remember is to take things slow, and let him trust you first. You might consider reading though your old threads about Poseidon as I know some great advice was given on those, too.

I hope things go well and I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing more about Atlas!

Well my cockatiel won't leave my new parakeet alone. He keeps flying out of his cage and landing on atlas's cage. I feel bad but now i have to close his cage so he will leave my new parakeet alone. Atlas is still jumpy but today and yesterday i have been reading to him and he was kinda tweeting with me while i read today. He's starting to get use to my movements around his cage and isn't jumpy as bad as he was last night. I am talking to him a lot to try and make him calm down. he was flighty down stairs because he was over in the corner and no one ever talked to him but me and i wasn't downstairs much anyway so i wasn't able to talk to him much.
I hope he will start calming down soon. I know he obviously will take a bit because it's a new place but i have hope for him. He has potential lol
