I just got my parakeet last night, and he is already eating out of my hand.
He doesn't flap around at all when I put my hand in the cage, and I have already perched trained him in a few minutes! I can even get him to sit on my finger, but he doesn't much like that and jumps off after a few seconds. I am very happy for my new bird, but he seems very sleepy. When I am looking at him in his cage he closes his eyes a lot. Is this normal?
PS: He also grinds his beak. What is he doing this for?
