Oooh I love the name Wyatt Chirp too! VERY cool...and manly grin

I like the name Pickle too, it's cute..but not manly enough for such a handsome lil man.
Besides, Wyatt goes better with Doc for sure wink

S'okay, my guys have more than one name too. And ya know? I do believe they know them all. lol

I have settled on Wyatt Chirp. Although, I believe that he is just going to have two names. My son started calling him Pickle-Head and that makes me laugh. Anyway, thanks to everyone for your input.

lol Pickle Head. Too cute. laugh
Nothin wrong with having 2 names. Rest assured he'll know who you're talking to if he hears the names often enough.

How's the hand taming/training going with Wyatt? Any interest in you humans?

BTW XPR, illusive's comp is down so she hasn't been on in a few days. I've talked to her a few times on the phone and filled her in.

She says Congrats on the new guy! tsk tsk and a finger shake at the not doing 90 day quarantine..but she can take over on that one when she comes back.

I love the name Wyatt Chirp! Drop the pickle head if you can...lol

Wyatt hasn't made it to finger training yet, but he does hop up on a perch first time every time when I offer it to him. I think that is pretty good. He also lets me touch him which is something that Doc has never let me do. Only time will tell if I will be able to get them both to be comfortable with finger training or if Doc will regress. Doesn't really matter cause I can see already that he is much happier with a playmate. That's what really matters.

Wow! I'd say Wyatt is doing more than just "pretty good" with the perch training. Sounds VERY good to me. Nice job XPR.

If Doc is bonded with you, finger trained, and takes it upon himself to want to be with you I don't think he will regress just because you now have Wyatt. At least it didn't seem to effect Levi that way when I brought Ziggy in to the picture.

Totally AWESOME that you can already see that Doc is happier having a bird bud. You're right...their happiness IS what is important. I know that Levi is very happy to have Ziggy and vice versa. They can play and FLYYY together. Chase each other around...I swear they even have flying races. LOL Things that us mere humans cannot do.

But I do think perch and finger training is important too, if only for emergency situations, and also to make vet trips a little easier on them? So keep working on it.

Thanks kk. They don't get a chance to fly together yet as Wyatt's wings are clipped. But I see the flights growing in a little. So it won't be long now. Having Wyatt not able to fly has been good for Doc to though. He see Wyatt down on the floor and Doc wants to be with him so badly that Doc comes down and plays on the floor now too. He usually just flies around and lands on light fixtures and what not. Doc even landed on my glasses the other day which was a first.

Will you be training them to talk? Cause if you are, I'd certainly teach a few western phrases like "DRAW"! or " Meet me at the OK coral." LOL

I do play a recording of my voice saying 'Pretty Bird' and 'Good Boy' for them everyday for 15 minutes, sometimes longer. Neither one has repeated anything yet. I would like for them to talk but I am not stressed about it. Maybe if/when they start talking I will see if they can say those phrases, Jeanne. Too funny.

"Hands up" would be another good phrase for them to say. wink
