We (my son David and I) are very new to birds and Parrots (IRN) but not new to baby animals. We have two IRN a boy and a girl. Just found the Parrot safe food list and printed that out. Our IRN's are just being weaned now. The boy is a lot further along than the girl. We've had the girl (Baby Blue) now for 23 days and she is 46 days old. I am super bonded with her already...she is so sweet! The boy we just got Friday. He is about 2 weeks older than Baby Blue but has just started making his IRN noises. Baby Blue will "talk" to me whenever I coo at her. He has JUST started this today! YAY! And I am getting him to let me pet his breast and the top of his head. Neither of them bites. Hopefully, this will continue and neither will go into their moody stage! I hope to learn a lot from this forum.
