I think a lot of times with our fids, whats right for one bird may not be right for another, a lot of time its trial and error.

Now I love these books that are out there, but I may try some of the suggestions in them, some work some don't, for our fids, the ones that don't work aren't right. (for me and my fids)

Also Minzer I should have said that sometimes when Kito is down the bottom wanting his quiet playtime, he won't stop unless I do, so don't feel bad about stopping. Once Kito realises that there's not gonna be anymore playtime he will go to his night time perch.............. eventually, and after trying to make me feel really bad for abandoning him.

Re: Another game??

I just had to post this and wondered what you thought. Look at the section marked, okay just copy pasted .

Quote:
Social Behaviors:
Generally Amazon parrots are reasonably calm and peaceful, getting vocal only in the early morning and in the evening as it starts getting dark. They are very social birds and a single parrot will make a wonderful pet if it gets plenty of attention. This is until about the age or 4 or 5 when they reach sexual maturity. At this time, if the parrot is left alone a lot it may become restless, may start feather plucking and in general show signs of psychological distress. A female may even start laying infertile eggs. In their natural environment, this is the time when they would begin to find a mate and pair up. Living with a mate is part of the social pattern of the Amazon parrot. The key here is the amount of attention you pet needs. This may be the time to consider getting a mate for your parrot if it seems to be distressed and you cannot spend more time with it. Sometimesis pairing the only satisfactory solution even if you do spend more time with it and it still remains distressed. This will depend a lot on you and your bird.
Amazons and children can mix very successfully if the parrot gets used to the child, and the child learns how to interact with the parrot. However, sometimes a parrot can get very jealous of small children and so you should be on your guard. Amazons and other pets can also get used to each other and learn to accept each other. Again, however, be very careful to monitor all groupings of animals. An Amazon can be very dangerous to small pets such as hamsters, guinea pigs, mice, and even small birds. Close friendships are just as possible as deadly enemy behaviors. You won't know until the relationship unfolds over time

So there you go, off you go, get Iggy a mate, then you can have two screamers/biters

Oh Peta, you're just SO helpful sometimes... I'll make sure to send you the both of them when I have stumps for hands.

Re: Another game??

Tonight so far he only screamed while I was getting his dinner ready, now he's sitting on his dinner stand picking at it...hopefully bedtime will be quiet and uneventful and he'll cooperate...He seems to cooperate for Chase at bedtime, so maybe he's just trying to sucker me in...

Find out exactly what Chase is doing, then you do exactly the same, It seems as tho' Iggys worked out that he can maybe get his way when you are putting him to bed?

Re: Another game??

Wooo! Last night he didn't even wait for his seed on the lower perch, he just ran up to the top perch! Not sure if this was him forgetting to be a brat or if he wanted to just get higher than me to try to eat me, but as long as we're back to normal for the moment I'm happy....
