    Re: I got my baby today!

    I have also found that my birds have certain things they don't like, are afraid of, or don't want anything to do with. Muffin only wants to be covered with anything white. No colors for him. He also does not like any bright yellow things. I have a 1 cup yellow measuring cup that I use for their food. Muffin will not allow that cup in his cage. He goes into a flying frenzie.

    In reality, birds are not that much different than humans. We have our o.k. "stuff" and not o.k. "stuff" too! Sometimes it takes me awhile to figure out what my two don't like, but their actions speak much louder than words.

    Even big boy Mango is afraid of things I make him for his cage and he refuses to go back in it until the scary thing is out of there. Boomer was a chicken butt and if we ever wanted anything in his cage that was new we would need to do it slowly by putting the scary thing far away and slowly moving it towards his cage a day at a time.

    Re: I got my baby today!

    I love the way this thread turned out! I have a feeling that lots of new bird owners would love to watch babies develop, and with the photos, videos and TWO babies with different personalities featured, PLUS all the fabulous sharing of you people should give new bird owners lots of good tips. I have learned a LOT from everyone responding here. Thank you all very much for participating! I never dreamed that it would turn out to be such a good resource as it has.

    I'm going to save this thread to my files as a good reference journal.

    Re: I got my baby today!

    I adore baby pictures, out of all the posts I look at the baby ones are the ones that put a instant smile on my face. But then all birds make me smile because birds are Gods special little animals that deserve to be loved and spoiled.

    Re: I got my baby today!

    Tango is afraid of his play area on the top of his cage. The minute I put him up there, he flies right off and does a tour throughout the whole house. One thing my little guy is not afraid of is my jewelry. He already destroyed a pair of earrings and he also likes to pull the stem on my watch. I doesn't matter to me... I just love him to bits and pieces.

    Thanks, Richard. They are turning out to be quite the characters. I had only planned on getting one blue one but I fell in love with the lutino too. So, I have a blue female and a lutino male, both the same age!!

    Update No photos

    Finally! Gabby learned how to put herself to bed. YAY! She hated going to bed before, so I took out the boing perch and she's a lot happier. And, last night she went to bed all by herself. Only one minor problem - she went into Chauncey's house, LOL! That was okay, though. Chauncey slept in Gabby's house

    That's funny!! Gabby and Chauncey are still young, in time they will know which home belongs to them.

    Re: I got my baby today!

    Gabby is still putting herself to bed like a good girl. But my boyfriend Chauncey wants me to put him to bed, LOL. And, he fusses until I take him out for the day, whereas Gabby Renee comes out on her own. It's too funny!

    Chauncey is a spoiled boy Pat, but it least he also is a charmer so its OK because I am sure you love to put him to sleep with a big kiss and squeeze.

    Re: I got my baby today!

    I sure do, Deanna. Right now Gabby Renee is practicing with different sounds and I hear some whistles that sound like she's trying to imitate Misty whistling the Andy Griffith theme. She's also practicing with kissie sounds. It's so exciting to see these babies develop. Only 3 months old and they're just moving right along!

    Gabby sounds like she is a little go getter to me and I cant wait for you to record her once she gets the Andy Griffith song down and can whistle it with Misty.
