New Cockatiel: Update
 
2 Attachment(s)
It's been about a week since I brought Arka home, so she's approximately nine weeks old now. It took a while for her to get comfortable in her new environment, but she is very happy and at ease now. :) I let her out of her cage every day, as much as I can (about 1-2 hours, multiple times in a day). She plays with all of her toys, and is becoming very vocal (and I don't mind :)). I don't push her to interact with me, I allow her to move about as she pleases. I can get her to step up onto my finger very easily by luring her with food (romaine lettuce is her favorite so far). Just this morning, I let her out of her cage. She always comes out by herself. I fed her some lettuce while she stood on my finger. When she was finished, I set her back on top of her cage. Well, she came back to me, so I tried to get her on my finger again. And she did! With no biting or hissing. :D I was also able to stroke her chest. She is doing very well.
Here is a video of her, if you want to see how well she is doing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yxpPIpkGUI

She's precious! Have owned 3 cockatiels myself. Nice birds. Sassy but nice. Glad she's getting comfortable with you. :)

If you watch the video, I suggest setting the volume to "mute."
My high-pitched voice gets quite annoying.

LOL. Didn't even notice the link. I'm at work and just glanced through the new posts. I will take a look later and I doubt I will mind your voice. :)
