I won't play any more birdie sounds. I thought that it would make it harder for him, but it's just so stinkin' cute when he looks around, chirping. I told the kids that we couldn't do it anymore and the he'll do it on his own soon. Poor Gun!! About the food, I am feeding him what he got at the pet store (not Petco, but it doesn't really matter) and I do mix it with the ZuPreem, he just never touches the stuff. OH, but he has started to eat the other seed in the store mix so that's a good thing. I can totally tell that he's getting more comfortable which makes me happy. He did play with one of his toys and he's eating in front of me now....YEEEAAAA!!! laugh Thanks for all ya'lls help, I need it!!! crazy
