Good morning all~ I am so excited to have found this page. My husband and I are new parents to a 1 year old GCC Toots. This feathered member is filled with love and wants to be around us 24/7. When we went to the pet store for filters for the fish tank ( yep, not a bird) I went over to where the bird was and started talking to him. He came down the ladder and started to roll onto his back. I started to cry with excitement. I called my husband over and of course toots did nothing. Like i made it all up. He started to walk away and BAM! he started again and my husband turned around and saw and said, pick out a cage, he is coming home tonight. He has been with us for just about 3 weeks now and has been adjusting VERY well. Has an amazing routine with bedtime and gets a lot of playtime. My husband does not want to take him out until we can get him stick/finger trained. We try daily for 30 minutes at a time, every hour. We use the same phrase and the same finger. Is there something else we can try? Toots eagerly wants to come out and play and we also want to get him out.
