6 more sleeps! Awesome news!! You wait, as the number gets smaller, you just 'may' have trouble sleeping and/or concentrating on anything other than your pretty Bella.

Re: Finally !! The count down begins !

Hi guys! So i went to visit her today. Her siblings all went home! she was the only one left! I wish I could bring her home today T_T, Anyways I think she was pretty sad that her sisters went home... ( turns out to be all girls) When I saw her and tried to get her out of her cage she was so scared =[ She calmed down a bit after calming her down with my voice and then a bunch of little kids came and one of them wanted to touch bella but bella is not a big fan of being touch.. She would let you touch her wings and back but is not a big fan of being touch on the head at all! But for some reason today she was especially moody... she would squawk when i hand was near her or when i try to pet her she squawks and runs away to my shoulder. ANYWAYS this little kid walks up to bella with out asking and slaps her on the back because he wanted to touch her but was scared. I was shocked.. ... When the kid try to do it again I had to tell him to be carefull.. there was so many kids there I had to move to another area because i felt that she was scared..

GOOD THING i moved to another area because she calmed down a bit.

MY QUESTION for you all is that when she squawks with the sight of my hand or fingers near her should I pursue in petting her or should I leave her alone? She seems fine on my finger but when my fingers go near her she squawks.. She usually isnt like that but I thnk its because she is upset that her sisters are gone and there was a lot of kids....

I hope she will eventually warm up to me and allow me to scratch her head... because she dodges my finger all the time when I to pet her head >=[

Re: Finally !! The count down begins !

Oh wow, what a traumatic experience with the kids in the store. How old were they, and where were the parents? I'm fairly certain the little one didn't mean to actually slap Bella on her back, but I know I would have had to say something - 'not so nice' - right then and there.

Joyce, both my Amazons are quite vocal. They have to have the last word. Hunter grumbles even while I remove her from the cage. She is very 'outspoken', so while playing with her, or snuggling, or patting, she has to have a 'say'. Sam is even worse than her. Sometimes he sounds as if he's being abused, when in reality he's LOVING the affection.

Keep on at it with Bella. I'm sure in time she will learn to enjoy a head scratch, especially once she figures out how good it will make her feel.
