    Frodo

    Well Yeah had Frodo a few days and enjoying his company very much. He does need some trainning as he has got to learn to not use his contact call everytime he wants attention. Trying to teach him to not by ingoring him when hes like that.

    But other than that hes very sweet and gentle and doesnt bite. He just nudges me with his beak. Guessing would hurt to be bit by a beak like that 0_0
    Still trying to get him used to me as well, He is a bit unsure but still doing better than I thought.

    Trying to think of more complicated Foraging toys and Ideas... He solved one in 1 second. Want some these to last the whole day or at least long enough while I am out.

    Re: Frodo

    He is a gorgeous Alex, and looks very healthy. I just love the looks of an Alex. they just have such a mystic look on their faces, and I always see personality written all over them. I hope you can find a way to tame down that flock calling, because quite frankly, I've never had much success with any of my birds. Love the pics Tarryn. Thanks for sharing it with us!

    I dont mind his flock call not as bad as some birds. But because its not normal for him to do it more than morining and afternoon. Plus I think its best for him to learn good behaviour thou cant hear him much from outside which is good mum was worried about neighbours

    Lol Frodo has alot personality.

    Re: Frodo

    The flock calling is more than likely because of him missing his owner. And will settle as he adjusts to you and your home.
    We find this even happens with a few of the birds that only come here for a holiday then go home.
    Indi the Cockatiel has been doing exactly that this last week, I am told.

    I agree he does look to be in good feather.
    And that is good he is pushing into you with his beak. It is a good sign.
    R.I.P my little ones.

    old owner said he did do his flock call a bit more than he should. But dont think she knew how to train him not too. But yeah could be, He is a bit unsure about stepping up onto my hand. He does eventaully I just dont force him. I'm sure he just needs time

    Re: Frodo

    Dexter flock calls me if I get up late or go out the door without him.
    I tend to ignore him until he starts talking instead of calling.
    I am sure Frodo will come right, they are very intelligent and should only call because they want something.
    Once comfortable he will be happy just to be around you.
    R.I.P my little ones.

    He goes quiet for ages long as hes out the cage, Unless he cant see me even if in same room
    He didn't like it when I had to put him back in cage so I could feed the others. I didn't want him unsupervised.

    Re: Frodo

    I am happy to see you got Frodo, I know how much you have been wanting one. He is one handsome birdy and hopefully once he settles down in your home he will not flock call as much. I would think he has a super loud call and yes that beak would hurt if he decided to chomp down on it.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.
