    Progress with Joey

    Well today is the seventh day. And it is coming along very well. Joey is eating some better, I really limit the seed. And he is drinking out of water bowls. I only use black and white newspaper under his grate in cage. I had put all perches lowest they could go and he started bending down to eat, and soon stepped down to check out other food bowls. And he started eating some of the veggies. I was surprised, thought it would be forieign to him, but guess he was still adjusting. He steps up almost all the time, will come out of the cage on my finger. Has never opened beak around my finger. He is very vocal, some squawks, some mutterings, and a cute little "rrrrh" low sound he does when close to me. He also says pretty bird, and hello. He seems to sleep more, guess being young. How do they not fall off things? lol Was sitting here and looked over at cage and he was asleep on top, will send that pic. Propped up by his head! Thanks for all the suggestions, I think he is feeling more settled, and I sure worry less knowing I can come for answers and support. By the way he and cricket are sure aware they are both here in house somewhere, esp in morning flock calls.

    I am glad to hear that he is eating better and exploring more. You may want to check with your avian about the excessive day-time sleeping.
