    I always wanted an African grey, but didn't realize how much I needed one until you came into our lives. Happy 7th Hatch Day, Maalik, my intelligent, cuddly, sometimes bratty, and loving Bubba Bird.

    14 Week update photo of Ella, she will allow you to turn her onto her back and fuss her and loves to lie on your chest and go to sleep, she is like a little puppy that loves attention. She has got a cage but only goes in it at night time to sleep, during the day she spends hours with us and is still taking a bit of top up formula at 4.00pm and then again just before bedtime about 10.30pm although she eats almost everything she is offered and loves to try new things. If you have been following this thread then Thank You for taking the time to read it It has been on my bucket list tick sheet for years to breed and hand feed a parrot so another Thank You for the information found on this forum, i don't think we would have managed without the knowledge shared here. Carol, Rob and Ella 🐣

    4We have had Vannah 3 weeks now, and she is settling in ok. She allows me to pick her up off of her cage occasionally, and from the floor any time. I can put her food in her cage without nips, and she knows when to go inside at night. She won't always allow me to put her in the cage at night. She also enjoys sitting with me and getting her head scratched. She's willinging to try a new perch too as long as I don't leave her on it. Here's the problem... she won't do any of this for my husband. In her previous home her favorite in the house was a man, and his wife was tolerated, but was not liked. On Vannah's first night here she didn't want to go in her cage, so my husband tried to make her (without success). I feel like this might be part of his problem. Now when Vannah and I are cuddling he will try to come in and pet her or pick her up from me. He will also try to do something with her that she generally does with me. She doesn't like that either. Now she has changed her willingness to do things with me when he is around. She will give him "kisses" though. We need her to be at least compliant with stepping up for him and allowing him to feed her. How do you think we should go about this? We don't want him to become completely alienated from her. His solution is to be firm about his requests and continue until she complies. He isn't mean, but you can tell she isn't happy about it. I think there is probably a better way. Is it possible that her initial bedtime experience is causing this? Will she forgive him?

    Greys are quirky. Once they bond with a human, they oftentimes don't want anything to do with anyone else. It's something that he may have to accept over time, but for now it's too early to know. I'd suggest that he do more talking and treating rather than actual physical touching until she relaxes around him.

    You know, your right, even during the DB conversion I missed this one. Thats why Im a fan of not having too many forums and sub categories, but I didnt want to change what you had, just keep it going. I stand corrected. Thanks!

    The avatar harness is used by many. There's a learning curve for birds though, but there are YT videos and a CD that comes with the harness. I have the avatar, but didn't take the time to consistently work with my adult birds. Consequently they never accepted having it put on.
