Pepe has been home from the pet shop now for 2 1/2 months. He's definitely hand shy, but he's not aggressive. I have designed and created a climbing net and just now finished his play gym. He's getting better about coming out of his cage and climbing to the top where I can then coax him onto my finger and place him on the table where he climbs up on the gym. The gym is much larger than I originally designed, but the climbing net is huge also. If my pics won't show they are in my album.
The employees in the hardware store could not imagine what I was building with 1 1/3 lengths of pipe, 9 elbow and 29 T connections so I took them a picture when it was completed. My spanish is too limited to try and explain, but I could tell they were quite curious as they helped me strap on the pipe to my scooter. As there are no pet shops with bird accessories here locally, I was able to buy perfect baby toys at the grocery store. Of course his favorite toy is a plastic tie wrap attached to his cage. He can play with that for 2 hrs. so I try and remember that when I'm making his toys. He's a little overwhelmed by the gym and net now, but we have the time for him to become adventurous.
I see I have posted this in Bird Help... Please move to General Cockatiel topics if possible.
