Post Ollie's and Daisy's taming & bonding journal

Hi guys, I wanted to create this taming journal before I began Ollie's and Daisy's taming process to keep track of their progress throughout. I have had Ollie since 24th December 2016 and Daisy since May 18th 2017. I hadn't committed to begin the taming process with either of them yet because I've still been grieving over Budd, my little boy who passed on April 19th 2016. But I miss that special bond that we get with our budgies when they trust us and feel comfortable with us. And it'll be more beneficial for them to keep their stress levels down with doing everyday things (cleaning the cage, feeding, etc).

It's going to be a slow process but I'm finally starting it now. I'm excited!

Would it be better to do taming/bonding sessions with each budgie individually or together?

I'll be updating soon


Ollie


Daisy

Thank you so much Iris I find it hard still to bond with my babies because I miss my previous budgie Budd so much, but we will always miss the pets we lose, because they are a constant good in our lives

Today when I got home after uni, I let the birds out of their cage to fly around the lounge room. They were so happy and were flying around like usual, but they were flying around much more today. In particular, Ollie was happy to fly from his cage to his play gym, to the curtain rod, back to his cage back and forth. He was flying super close to me and fluttering mid air right in front of me for a bit- he was flying around so much, when usually, Daisy is the one who leads the flight and he follows. During all of this I was talking to them. I got out their food bowl to change the seed and he flew directly onto it while it was in my hand! then, daisy did too! they were on the food bowl eating seed for a long while and and I was so so happy. After a while passed I handed the bowl to my partner so he was holding it while they were on it too

We are so happy that today they felt comfortable enough to be that close to us. Ollie was chewing on my hair after a while, too!

This is a great start! I got my partner to capture the moment:

Thanks, it was! Daisy is not as comfortable as Ollie as we've had Ollie longer but she trusted him enough to trust us

Thankyou! I'm so happy- I'm just so curious why Ollie has started to become more open/trusting lately- it feels like it's sudden.
Who knows. I'm really happy.

Today when Ollie & Daisy were flying about, again, Ollie was flying super close to me, as if he was going to fly onto my head, then flew off. I put my finger out so he could step up but he backed off. He's okay with me putting my hand flat, because he nibbles the tips of my fingers. My partner suggested I put some seed in my hand since he seemed to want to come over, so I did, and this happened! pics aren't the best quality!



Yay- so happy... my heart is all warm!
