    New love bird, now what?

    Hello all! I just got a little peach face that I am calling a boy named Buddy... I know they are curious little birdies so I was just wondering how long should I wait before attempting to introduce myself to him and working on step up.. He normally pays attention to me and seems interested when I talk to him outside the cage.
    Also, I know this is the great debate, but my budgie and cockatiel are both on pellets, I am feeding buddy the same seeds he had at the pet store ::cringe:: so when should I start switching? Thanks you guys!

    First off, Congrats on your new baby bird! He is a cutie if he is hand tamed you could try letting him out of the cage and see what he does. If he is not, just take things slow and get used to each other. It is really a guessing game of how a bird will react when let out of the cage depending on the temperment of the bird. Maybe you could bribe him with treats??? About the pellet question, Ulii was on seeds when I got her too, I introduced her to pellets when she was outside of the cage, so she thought they were treats, and she went right after them. Try putting a few pellets in Buddy's food and generally "weed out" the seeds. I hope this helped and Good luck! If you have any questions just let us know

    Thank you! I felt so bad for him, he seemed to have slept in the corner of the cage in a kind of awkward position last night, I know he is scared but I just wanna play! lol.
