I can see from Puku that they settle in quickly...she is like a different bird today!! She is hopping all over the cage, hardly sitting still for two minutes, chirping away...its such a pretty sound she makes! I have her by the back door and when I have it open she has been 'talking' to a black bird out there..how cute! Today when I came back from walking the dogs and again after I had been shopping she even came to the front perch and said hello (not literally of course!!), I was so impressed!!
I made her a cd of birdsong that I downloaded and she absolutely loves it and sings back to them! I gave her half a strawberry this morning actually and she did love it, her favourite thing so far seems to be kiwi fruit.
Her favourite toy thing is a coconut!! I just bought one from the supermarket...washed it of course, cut a square hole in it, pushed in the holes at the top and hung it from her cage...she loves it sooo much and spends lots of time pulling the strands from the shell and eating the coconut inside!
She hasn't had a bath yet though...not sure if Jonny had one in her old cage I will have to ask him. I don't think so though because she has perched on the edge of the dish but not actually gone in. She dips her food in her other water bowls though which I think is so sweet..its as if she is washing it or something!
Today I might try the sitting with my hand in business and start trying to hand tame her seeing as she has settled in so well!
its great that shes settled in well, [ive said that about 10 times] i didnt think of a coconut but i might try mine with 1 i can imagine how much fun they could have with 1, wen my kaks cage is closed they love running up and down the roof, [on the inside] my pics havent gone on yet i hope i done it right, im keeping everything crossed 4 egg no 3, nala is in the box in the day, and major overnight so i thing they have started sitting tight, they will prob have 1 or 2 more i think i dont no weather they have more eggs with every clutch last time she had 3 im going to watch corra ive missed most of it speak 2 u soon
I have some crazy news!! Puku says 'hello'!!! How clever is she?!! I think it must be because she was parent reared and they say hello too... she is only 12 weeks old!!!
She is merrily flying round the house at the moment trying to make friends with my dogs, she is such a cutie!!
Going to try and post some pics tonight.
how r u? thats good, shes learning quick wen i give pauly a nut/fruit etc i say mmm nice and shes started saying mmm she hasnt got nice down yet though also she says sarah, pauly, hello, bye, rings like a phone, barks like a dog, quacks like a duck, what, and she shouts OI, she makes a strange noise sometimes she sounds like a kids toy wen the batteries r low , no more eggs just the 2 she only goes in now and again so ive stuck a heat mat inside just 2 keep the eggs warm hope this works [it started like this last time mabye its just not meant to be ]
After I wrote that about her bath jonny I figured it was probably her sulking!
When I originally posted this message I had a cage without a grill in the bottom of it and so needed to know what to put in the bottom but I since did a zinc test and found that the cage was coated in zinc so just to be on the safe side I bought a new cage, this time it has a grill in the bottom, so the tray underneath is lined with just newspaper. I have put a cat litter tray with bits of grass and dandelion leaves, twigs, stones and bird grit in (changed daily) for her to have a scratch around in, she also has a plastic shelf layed along the bottom and her bath so that she doesnt have to walk on the grill the whole time, specially seeing as she likes to spend so much time on the bottom of her cage!
I am really impressed that she seems to be toilet trained pretty well, obviously by her parents as well....when she is out which was a good 5 hours today (with the cage open so that she could go in and out) she seems to go back to her cage whether it is inside or into the play stand thingy on top to poo!!! Only had maybe 3 poos outside the cgae in total!!
Just going to sort some piccies out right now and will post straight away
