Well, I just fell in love with her (Alexandrine Ring Neck) and had to bring her home! So what if she is going to be loud I am latin so we have something in common! We named her Shakti. Shakti was born the end of February and looks very healthy. I did notice that her previous owner was a bit scared of her. So I took the plunge put my hand in and yep, she bit me twice and it drew a bit of blood, but it did not deter me! So after a 4 hour drive we were home. It was late so I fed her, gave her water and talk to her for a bit and then nite nite! Anyway, early this morning I made her some home made grub which she appreciated. I played with her in her cage for a bit and then showed her to step up. She did try to nip me, but I had a toy in my other hand so she was so busy hanging on to that she forgot she needed to bite me! Well, I think she knows that biting is not going to make me go away. I think I am more stubborn than Shakti.
We played peek a boo and then she flew off (have to take to the vet to get those wings clipped for now). She landed on the curtain rod and with a wooden spoon I was able to reach her and bring her down. I think she was so grateful that I rescued her that she stepped up to me and did not try to bite! She even let me give her neck scratches and kept letting me play step up! Well, I guess we are on the way to a better relationship. She also step up to my husband. I think she was in shock!
Hopefully today when I get home she will not forget!
