Haha right? They're SO TINY. And thanks for your kind words about her thread. It's no Rickeybird Scrapbook or Nigel the Great . . . but it's fun for me to keep track of when things happen, if nothing else.

I think I have subscribed to any birdy threads I've seen LOL. I liked the idea too hence "Dora... the Explorer?". It's nice to keep track of your journey together. P.S. I don't have an Instagram but I've checked and will continue to check Bumbles. She's famous!

Smile Update

It's been a couple of days since I shared anything about little Dora. She's still settling in. HOORAY! I've witnessed her drinking multiple times - this was something that worried me. Tom(my toddler) is fascinated by her presence... Me too lol! I've read how they create a grinding sound with their beak when they're content and Dora does that frequently... especially before bed time. She LOVES her food and has been accepting bits offered through the cage. Today she tried a few edamame beans. I won't put my hands in her cage unless I'm cleaning her toys(trying! that poop is tough) or putting something new in. Occasionally leaving the cage door open. I don't think I have seen her play yet? I've been inspecting her toys, hoping she has whilst I have been away

Re: Dora... the Explorer?

a-DORA-ble! love the picture of her in her bowl lol.

Inger has quite the remarkable little girl with Bumble..such a tiny little thing and so smart,then add a truckload of CUTENESS and there's Bum

When I took Beeb's home from the breeder he was already quite tame. He picked me,and was the most outgoing from his three other siblings,running right up my arm to my shoulder.
When we got home,after I finished setting up his house,I opened his little take-me-home box,and he came right out,junped on my hand,ran up my arm to my shoulder and that was it lol..He eagerly jumped on my hand/fingers when I opened his front door to come out.

Sounds like your Dora is going to be easy to train and is settling in nicely.
More pictures please!


Jim

Re: Dora... the Explorer?

*Thank you for sharing that story!* It made me smile. Giggled at a-Dora-ble - how did I not think of that LOL!! I'll definitely get another photo and share it some time today. I plan to leave the cage door open whilst Tom is at nursery.
This morning Dora met me at her food bowl, it's one of the first things I sort when waking. Thinking about it... I did wake a little later today. Although... she didn't move from her bowl when I tried removing it. I assumed she would. I slowly lifted her to the nearest perch and she happily clambered on. I love her!

Re: Dora... the Explorer?

Sheís precious! I take it she isnít tame? Bumbleís breeder did a fantastic job preparing her for life; Iím beginning to realize that isnít always the case.

Here's a clip of Dora!


@Inger Unfortunately, it isn't. Dora's breeder led me to believe she was but I began doubting them when I went to collect her. It's conflicting. Dora and her sisters were huddled in the top corner, behind a snuggle tent and covered with a towel. The breeder chased them around the cage, the first they caught was quite nippy - I doubt I would react positively to a giant hand trying to grab me.

I agree! No cozy hut. You donít want them to think they can hide. I took a large handkerchief and tied it to a corner on 3 sides. This way he could nestle into something, yet not be concealed. My parrotlet is now 7 months old and he still enjoys standing in it and loves finding millet hiding in it.
