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
