    Happy Day!

    Just had to share this with ya'll. I know it's probably not a big deal, but tonight Coco actually ate out of my hand! He usually will eat millet from the stalk that I hold between my fingers, but this time I broke it up like birdseed and held a pile of it in my hand. I put him on my other finger and brought it down to my hand. He stood there for probably almost 10 minutes before he finally got up the nerve to eat. Then after the first few pecks, it was like he came alive. He pecked and pecked for a good three or four minutes. I think we finally progressed to the next stage.

    He never flies to my finger on his own, but he'll usually cooperate when I ask him to step up. I guess it depends on his mood..LOL.

    Woot!!!! That is great! What a happy moment for you and also for Coco. Soon he will be a little shoulder bird who will want to eat everything you are eating.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.
