Re: Quaker Arriving USPS Today

Looks like the bird has been received. There's a new thread started about an hour ago, "Rufus is home". Yay!!! Congratulations brettnelson232!

The first few weeks are a period of discovery, you'll need to assess whether your quaker was properly weaned and begin a nutritious diet. Excellent advice ahead, I'll post a few additional links of possible interest:
Tips for Bonding and Building Trust
Converting Parrots to a Healthier Diet - Tips

I hope your quaker has arrived safe and sound!
Thank you. Hopefully I don't bug the crap out of this forum with all my amateur questions. Trying to read through some posts so I don't post too many repeat questions.

Yes sir. I think he is already warming up. He wants out of his cage for obvious reasons, but I don't feel comfortable I would be able to get him back in later. baby steps. Rufus already got first blood...but I didn't flinch, yell, or get angry as he latched on a couple seconds. I think he realizes that his bites don't phase my 44 year old working hands. He is eating his sunflower treat out of my hand now though. "baby steps" ha
