its nice to hear the excitement when someone is learning about all the wonders of these lil birds and how intelligent they can be...

they maybe slow to give their trust in the beginning but once they do they open up a whole new side to them becoming so much more social and then really start to show their lil individual characters

this is why its soooo important in the beginning for every new owner to really move slowly no matter how anxious they maybe to gain that trust and once that is reached to never betray that trust ...

trust goes a long way in the days ahead to achieving that adorable ideal lil social character that will worm its way to your heart

Thanks everyone for all the advice and quirky little stories. Love to hear them.

UPDATE: started leaving the door open for Cheeko yesterday. Still doesn't come out but I'm sure he will soon enough. He absolutely loves boiled carrots. He ate about 2 baby carrots in the past couple days. He's been chirping a lot more lately. Really happy about that. Haven't had much luck finding the petamine anywhere. (online and stores) If you find it again, Illusive, let me know. Thanks.

3 days with the cage open for most of the day, Cheeko has yet to come out. He WILL get on the perch near the door. But if I speak to him from across the room, he will get back on the top perch. I guess because he thinks I'm gonna come and get him. I'm worried I may have ruined the whole out of cage experience when I took him out of the cage when he was perched on my finger a few times about a week ago. (I was following the training guide on the website) Then again, maybe he can't figure how to get out. LOL Or maybe he still don't have the confidence to fly. Who knows? I guess all I can say is "All in KEET time".

Kimberly is there a perch or platform right outside the cage door? That usually helps because he might NOT know quite how to go about getting out, especially if he can't really fly yet.
And if he has a problem flying, do you have the cage lowered enough where he won't get hurt?
If there is a platform or perch right outside the door trey a fav treat or toy out there. They sell platforms that you can hook to front of cage for a "porch" if your door doesn't open in to a platform.
You're right..alll in Keet time. Or in this case..Cheeko time smile

Actually kksuns, Cheeko's cage opens up a lot like yours does. But I don't have a perch outside the cage like you do. Maybe I need to do this??? Also, Cheeko hasn't discovered the fun with toys and I haven't discovered a treat he would come to me for. His cage is about 3 feet off the ground. When he has been out before, he has been able to fly up to it. But a lot of times, he will fly to the sides and climb up to the top. When he is on top of his cage, it is very hard to get him to perch on my finger but everywhere else he's been, he perches just fine. I'm not sure if he knows how to get to the door/platform when he's on top either. He has never voluntarily came out and it's been 5 or 6 days since I've taken him out. He could be afraid of the kids, but I haven't noticed any behavior suggesting this. Because even when they are not here, he still doesn't come out. I just want him to be able to stretch his wings. When he has been out before, I let him fly around a little, then when he is idle for a few minutes, I go to him. Maybe I shouldn't be doing this. Maybe he wants to come out and not be bothered. Cheeko just might be slower than other birdies. But I still love him.


And I thank you for your response, kksuns!

first of all your bird is NOT slower so to speak there is a big difference between being slower an a bird who is just cautious..its just the kids right ...no other animals...???

if he isnt flying well when he gets to the top of the cage yes he will be very reluctant untill he gets those full flights to try to fly into the cage and a platform for him to land on in front of the door would aid in that.

also the last thing you want and he probably fears most is those lil feet stepping on him when he cant fly should they suddenly come running into the room and he gets froze in place...it happens wayyyy to often...i think he is being very smart and you should just go along with HIS program of confidence level but do get some sort of platform so if he just even wants to come out a bit to sit on the platform he can...

in time he will learn about the fun of toys when he does venture out and he sees YOU playing with them he will naturally want to interact with you and that toy.
