I guess i am being a worry wart
I love him so much already!
His poops are normal, and i caught him in the general direction of his food, so maybe he is picking at it. Just when i changed his water this morning, it was spotless, nothing in it. And i didn't see ANY seed hulls. So i kinda got freaked out
Now i walk in the room and i say "Hi baby" and he looks at me now. Before he was facing the wall and wouldn't look at me. Now he turns his head to peer down at me. I can see he is perking up. He had me worried for a second there! I am going to leave him alone until Tuesday, and that will be our first training session. He steps up (even though he doesn't know the command, he does it naturally. I say he doesn't know it because it takes many times of step up step up to get him to actually do it XD) and will sit on my finger comfortably in the cage. But when coming to pull him out he hops back onto the perch. So first training session will be of him perching on my finger and hopefully coming out of the cage. I'll give him a small smooch on the head and a piece of strawberry or grape as a reward
Oh, yes he is on the same food my manager had him on. I plan to switch him over to zupreme, but that will be a far time off. I will be introducing fresh fruits and veggies speared on a kabob once he is comfortable.
I went shopping and bought him all the following:
a boing rope perch
a beach walk perch
a cactus and millet treat/toy
a peakcock feather preening toy
a treat stick
a little furry "hut" or tent that they can cuddle up and roost in (which doesn't fit in his cage! grr!)
a small traveler for trips to the vet
a cage cover
a plastic spinny toy thing
It's very possible that there was more, but who knows
Sorry for the long post!
