Smile 3 Little Birdies

I've decided to start a training journal.

Cosmo- little girl-
Snow- little girl
Harvey- little boy

Cage 1- Prevue F040- home to Cosmo and Snow
Cage 2- Prevue medium flight cage 26"L x 14"W x 20"H- home to Harvey

So since I've had Cosmo for a little over a month now and my sister had Snow for over a month and both girls are healthy (as far as she and I have observed, think quarantine in different homes), I moved the girls into the big cage together last night. So far so good. There was a little squabbling but since the cage is so huge they have lots of room and neither of them chases the other. They are eating together and both sit on the same perches but opposite sides and make soft little chirpy sounds.

Harvey is still in his own flight cage in another room. He will remain in his own cage as I DO NOT want babies.

Harvey is still completely sketched out from the move but will look at me and cock his head when I talk to him. And he has stopped flipping out when I approach his cage. So I take that as a win and will continue to move slowly.

Snow doesn't like touched but does like to be hand fed millet and talked to.

Cosmo loves being hand fed millet and hops right on my hand. She lets me take her out of the cage to talk to her and then wants to sit on top of it

More and pics to come soon

It sounds like you're making wonderful progress, Angie!

Harvey definitely sounds like he's starting to get used to the situation, so well done :thumsbup:

As for the girls, do you have a water and food bowl for each of them? If they each have "their own stuff" it may also prevent squabbling in the future

I can't wait for more updates!

Starling- I currently have this giant double food cup and water cup (things) that came with the cage. But my plan this weekend is to get 5 separate bowls to attach in the cage.
1 each for food
1 each for water
1 for fresh veggies

I also am going to get a bird bath that will attach into one of the "nesting box" doors for the girls and put something on the bottom of Harvey's cage for him to bathe in.

Forgot to mention that I got all natural wood and different sized and types of perches for each cage.

Here are two pictures





Sorry for the mess, I did clean Harvey's cage

The girls are making friends! Here are two pictures of them preening each other. Sorry for the quality I didn't want to get to close and disturb them.





And here is Harvey eyeballing the hard boiled egg, carrot, pellet mixture I put in his bowl.

So this is how we've been for the last 35 minutes haha.





He looks so worried. But he doesn't freak out. Just dozes on and off.

What a sweetheart


It's funny he naps on and off--so you know he's comfortable with you, even if he doesn't fancy a bite of millet quite yet! He looks very cozy on that perch

Haha. Yeah he seems comfortable. Just reserved lol! That perch is his favorite. He even kinds "lays" on it sometimes. Like leans all the way over on his belly and sleeps haha!
My hand fell asleep so I closed the cage and have just been talking to him and teasing him about how he won that stand off haha.
