Re: Hello im a new member

Update on peaches. She's still doing good stepping up on the dowel to go walking around our home. She will put her head down for a head rub. Sometimes I think she's trying to trick me cause she will but her head down like she wants it rubbed and then if i try to , she whips her head up like she wants to bite. She also walks back and forth on the dowel and sometimes she acts like she's testing my hand to step up but then she tries to bite harder. When she does that I move the dowel to distract her, then she's ok for a few minutes. If she acts like she going to try again acting sneaky I just put her back on her perch. Still proud of the progress we've made in almost 2 weeks.

Re: Hello im a new member

Asking for head scratches and changing her mind is the trick my CAG pulls on me.

Usually I am trying to pick her up and she uses a head scrach as a distraction and as a means to block my hand from approaching too closely to her feet.

Update on peaches. The last few days I've gotten her the dowel then put it on the floor to get her use to stepping up on my arm. She's done good after about 5 times and having her stay on my arm before putting on our training perch. After 5 good runs she's had enough and starts biting. I really think she's never really been handled much. Today she was having fun dunking her head in her water dish taking some what of a bath. Lol she even tried to put her foot in there ( that's the first time she's done that since coming home). I do use a water bottle and mist her once a week so she kinda gets a bath.

Re: Hello im a new member

What you are seeing is common with Parrots that are forced to use their water bowls because prior owners never provided alternatives. Once they start this, it's a life long thing for them. Not a problem only requires water changing.

FYI: When you see her doing this, add water for her! She will appreciate it!

Re: Hello im a new member

Im not sure she would allow me to add water to her dish when shes trying to tske a bath in it, shes still bitingat times. So Im thinking of trying to put a glass pie plate in her play area to see if she would try and take a bath there. Be bigger than her water dish.
