i dont blame ya for fuming cuz if that little girl held the bird to tight in just a matter of a minute the bird would suffocate as they need to be able to expand their chest when breathing...a lil bird is always HANDS OFF be sure to let them BOTH know...explain to them also what i just said..

your back at square one for sure...sorry about that...just keep working at it ...now the bird will learn you can trust all humans...and be very cautious ...which isnt so bad really just to bad to have happened like this ...

best educated anyone around that bird ...

Hi Bambi, Just had to say how CUTE your little Storm is. All those stripes on his lil head..he must be quite young..still a baby smile
Do you know how old he is? They usually don't go thru a major molt til at least 4mos.
Then you will start to see bigger feathers being shed-like tail or wing feathers. You will probably even find some of those clipped flight feathers you are so anxiously awaiting to be replaced! lol
Most lose the little floofie feathers here and there at any time..it's not a major molt with just the floofies.

I see you were wondering about traveling and being able to use his cage for transportation? To the vet and whatnot? Didn't you say you used to have a smaller cage for Storm, and then you got a bigger one?
If so hang on the the smaller one for a travel/sick cage. How big was it?

I'd love to see a close up of that cute lil face of his. From your avi pic it looks like he has a pretty purplish cere..reminds me of my Levi's when he was a baby. If it is...I would guess that he's a boy smile Too early to tell of course..but that's what I get from ur avi pic.
He's gorgeous! And I think he will be ok, and back to trusting you in no time.
Darn sisters n husbands anyway huh? grrr!

Also, since he's a baby, can I still give him veggies and things? or is he too young? what do your keets like to eat? and also, in most of your pictures, you guys dont have your cages really really high up like mine, I was told birds love to be at the highest point in the room, but maybe I was told lies, how high up should the cages be?

Hi BambiEyes,
Stormy won't be "looking" for a mate even at 7-8mos. He doesn't NEED a mate. They don't mature til around that age, which is why it's hard to tell their gender til then. Their cere color can keep changing up until then, and then it will pretty much stay the same. Other than females will turn a crusty brown when they are in breeding mode. Males will stay basically blue..maybe sometimes a darker blue if they are feeling uhhhhh randy? LOL

You can start giving him veggies any time. In fact I would start now. A good starter is fresh broccoli..you can wedge a florett between cage bars, or chop of some of the seed like tips onto a plate or in a dish..or offer from fingertips if he will eat from your hand. Mine LOVE kale and it's very good for them. Clipped to side of cage..or for now even clipped to outside of cage where he can pick at it thru the bars-might not be as scary for him LOL I would try small pieces at first. BIG BAD VEGGIE MONSTER might eat me!!! ahhh! LOL
I've always thought the leafy part of celery is a good starter veg, even tho it's not nutritious, it has a nice fresh scent and taste and it's not scary. haha Like wedged between cage bars?
Chopped/grated carrots is another fav because they are sweet tasting and GOOD for them.
As for how high to put the cage. That's up to you..as long as it's safe and secure. They do say they like to be up high, but I think it depends on if they are used to it or not. My cage sits on a stand that is the height of a coffee table and they like it just fine. I like to be able to see and talk to them easily.
Of course if you have pets or young kids that might bother them if too low....go for high

BTW Stormy will come around again. Just be patient and do lots of sweet talking and in cage gentle hand training. Hold you hand in cage very still..what does he do?
