Re: Introducing Kira

Hi Tami

well the power of Face book All I remembered was the Zu Preem diet when I had my last CAG . I been waiting for a bird to cross my path and when I mentioned it again to my friend that someday a bird will cross my path she said Well you know you have to help that a bit and look around because a bird ain't going to fly into your house . So I agreed and after only a few months I got lucky .

Re: Introducing Kira

Thank you so much for sharing this happy event with the Community! I recall the excitement of the early days with the ol' Rickeybird. I wish you decades of love.

Re: Introducing Kira

second day with Kira . She really likes my husband he got to scratch her head ! She flew to him regurgitated a piece of food ( oh we know what means ) She did perch on my hand but I am not yet allowed to head scratch . Phone rang as she was sitting on my shoulder she prefers to run up my arm to perch on my shoulder . A cheerful Hello She mumbles something I can not understand but I am thrilled that she feels comfortable to make sounds . I made her some 15 bean mix this morning she chowed down on that . I keep introducing veggies she has not touched her green beans nor her carrot sticks . I clipped them to her cage maybe she will nibble . I will introduce all new stuff in the morning because as I understand the Grey forages in the morning and before night . I did end up clipping her wings yesterday because she flew around the house and then hit she does not know the house and I was not going to take a chance her flying into something and hurt herself. I left the two first primary feathers on her so she will still be able to glide and not fall like a rock . I figured better do it now while she is new then later and ruin my bond with her .

Re: Introducing Kira

Hi there,


Enzo, my female CAG has just started her flirting/loving cycle. This happens twice every year it seems and the first time was just a few months after taking her in, I made quite a long thread about this when i joined the forum.... It may be worth a read just in case it helps to spot and avoid the mistakes i made, i do miss those home made tiny poached eggs though

Re: Introducing Kira

Congratulations for adopting Kira, she seems very well adjusted. How nice for you and husband to be the object of her affection!

Re: Introducing Kira

Kira is doing awesome slowly I get her to eat better food . She eats her pellets Zu Preem Natural with a little water down apple juice . I keep introducing stuff got her crazy Corn made her a birdy receipe from the forum So far we have heard her say hello , Hi , pretty bird, mumbles alot we can't yet understand , Oh when my husband who she is in love with takes a drink of something she will make a drinking sound and right after burp LOL She will now step up on my hand from her play pen she is however not as comfortable with me and does not want to step up on my hand from inside her cage . She leaps onto my hubby's hand . She snuggles with hubby the affection she shows him is so sweet .

Re: Introducing Kira

Haha, Enzo can burp better than i can, she even does a little sigh after doing so. love the water sounds too... She smacks her lips when hungry or the water sound when thirsty. She also taps my fingers as a 'thank you very much for learning my needs' when i give her what she wants.


Sounds like you are all getting on fantastically, so well done. Keep the cuddle sessions short at this time of year though, and scratches/contact to her HEAD only..... When Enzo flirts she tries to get underneath my hand and also lifts one of her wings a little, be wary of this as you dont want to give off the wrong signals to her.


Maybe im just paranoid, but ill share my experience any way.
