Take it nice and easy.

I know it seems like forever but this is only the very beginning of your friendship.

the stronger you can create that bond now, the better your relationship will be.

you create a bond by building trust.
He has to trust that from you nothing unpleasant will happen,
you are the source of all things fun and adventurous.

my birds want to be with me and step up because they know that I am awesome.
I never have to use treats to get them to do what I want.
they just trust me.

its like a courtship.

you can put some great music on (beck or gorillaz for example) and dance like a fool.

or you can sing (perhaps Blur) out of tune, make up lyrics;
it doesn't matter your bird will swear that you are a rock star and that you are creating this music just for them.



if you open the cage Monty may come out to dance with you either on the outside of the cage or even make his way to the floor.
And at that time the dilemma will be how to get him back in the cage without breaking trust.


have fun
this is a long term friendship.

Re: bribing a quaker

yep he flew around the room. landed on the couch beside me..and was sitting on my shoulder eatting treats.. his previous owner said he wasnt aggressive at all, him and his wife seemed ok with him. their teenage girls seemed a little leery of him. i was a little nervous having him so close to my face, but he was talking and laughing so im thinking he is feeling more comfortable.

Re: bribing a quaker

When BB is out and on my shoulder,when he starts with his "singing" I follow along with his tune with my own "style" and he gets into it! Louder he goes and banging his head on my shoulder..then gets RIGHT UP to my ear and sings his little heart out..he loves it lol.

Re: bribing a quaker

sounds like you have had a good time!

Many birds have different personalities which means of course some are just friendly! It also sounds a lot like the previous owners did make a lot of time for him and cared for him

yes i do believe he was treated really well. when i picked him up from them, they took the time to show me his routines and how he likes to bathe and introducing him to me. i could tell they were sad to see him go and glad that he would be with a family that can smother him with time and love.

Re: bribing a quaker

things are going really well. we have had him out of the cage quite often the last couple days. he laughs in my ear. he nibbles and taste tests my chin and ears.
he is also in love with my father. as soon as my dad walks in.. i am cast aside. lol he literally flies through 2 rooms and right to my dad when he hears him walk in. im totally ok with being 2nd favourite. since my dad is retired he is home all day. they can keep each other company.
