Talking first bird, YNA coming home 6-8 weeks

Sponsored Links
Hey everyone!!!! So finally found my reputable breeder, and officially made my deposit to hold my 7 week old male! I have the cage, toys, food, and enough hands on experience and research over the last year to not be ill prepared. I want to hear from your experiences how the first days/weeks went for you with your new bird? what worked for you, what didn't, what to expect and how to make the move easy as possible for the bird. I'm driving to get him, no shipping, going to visit next weekend!! Any tips besides all the normal stuff read online would be soooo appreciated!!!!!

Hello jbready. you are past the most time consuming stage so its mainly to let him get accustomed to the new environs. after that just play and get him into a routine

Do Not Push the Breeder for a precise date! The goal is that your Amazon comes to your home 'only' when your Amazon is Ready! Not a day or a week or a month sooner!!! And, that is a 'fully' weened Parrot!

Sailboat thank you!!!! I am in nooo rush I've waited awhile I want him to be fully weaned on food for at least two weeks before bringing him home and when the Breeder says all good to go. That's just the rough estimate she gave me! I'm very excited! Once home and in new cage, what did you all do to start building trust after the few day adjustment period?

Spend time with them to build trust try to teach things. When they get irritable back in the cage to let em know that spending time with you is the best ☺️
