Re: Introducing Shiko!

What a breathtakingly beautiful bird! Wow! And your breeder must truly be amazing for him to already have that level of social interaction.

Looking forward to that video, Chantal!

Re: Introducing Shiko!

Oh my, he is beautiful! Congrats on the new baby! What breeder did you get him from? It sounds like she did an excellent job of socializing him.

Re: Introducing Shiko!

Thanks Julie! He's a sweet heart. I'm a bit flustered with him right now, because he loves to be with us but doesn't like to be touched like the breeder eluded to. I'm rather confused considering that she would brag about being able to touch him from head to tail and him loving it, and yet he comes here and gets angry if you even bring a finger close Especially since he and I had a really good cuddle session the first day he came here.

I'm not sure if it's bluffing or not, and I'm a bit lost on what to do I know IRN's aren't overly fond of being touched, but I'm not sure what to believe about him at this point. When you touch him, angry isn't really the right word for it... he doesn't bite hard, doesn't absolutely freak out, but he waddles away and pins his eyes and lightly beaks you. Not sure if it's bluffing behaviour or not, and not sure how to reinforce positive hand training with him as the techniques I used with Avery don't apply to him. He loves being out though, and really enjoys playing with his foot toys and being near us, which is a bonus! Just not the cuddly and touchable parrot I was led to believe he was... or at least not yet. Fingers crossed!

Re: Introducing Shiko!

Love the videos, Chantal! He's beautiful! And as for his aversion to being touched, it might just be a matter of time. Bixby started out very accepting of petting and cuddles as a baby. But eventually, he became more hands off, enjoying being on our hands and being close by, but preferring not to be petted. And, like Shiko, he would often lightly grab the offending hand or finger with his beak and move it away. Lol!

Lately, though, he's become a lot more accepting of being pet... on his terms. He enjoys being hugged to my chest whenever he is first taken out of either cage. And there are times now when he'll welcome being scritched on the head, back, or even under the wings... as long as we respect when he's done and wants to do something else.

But it took a while to get him to this point. A while, consistently reaching out and attempting to pet him, but always respecting his answer when it was "no". Remember that we brought him home after weaning back in November. He took his sweet time, but he eventually let us know when he was ready. Maybe Shiko will, too.
