Another Bella update

dIf what I was told when I bought Bella was true she should be 1 year + 1 month old. She is still picking her feathers despite a cage full of toys and much out of cage time.



I want to get/make a good foraging toy for her. None of the local pet shops have anything like that. I could order something by mail but I am the kind of person that has to put his hands on an item before I can judge if it would be “right” or not. I started work on making a foraging toy out of a week-long pill container but how to mount it in the cage is stumping me.

One morning last week she spent time sitting with me and asking for scratches (instead of flying to the top of the curtains). At least I know she enjoys my company.
She has become defensive over her food dish. When I add stuff to her bowl or give her fresh water she climbs down from the upper perch and tries to “bite the hand that feeds her”. Not sure what’s up with that behavior. I tell her she is a bad girl but have not done anything more than that.

Her most notable new words are;
Poor Girl
Stupid
Wonderful
