Hi all, new here.
I'm Bren and this is Yoshi!
He's a 15 year old Maxi Pi (DNA sexed male) that I just adopted on Tuesday. We are just getting to know each other but I'm already in love. He used his "pheromones" on me and that was that. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions. Ok, I already have one, but will post it in the right spot. He loves cantaloupe, scritches and will talk and dance to try and get bread! LOL he's not very happy with me when he doesn't get any. He is NOT a morning bird and is Mr. Cranky Pants till after his breakfast and nap. Then he's friendly! He seems to completely Hate water in any way! He stress talks but not understandably, unless there's a shot at bread, then we get his cute little, very clear "hello!" He's a total cage potato so we are working on exploring and getting used to new things. I'm super excited to have him and can't wait to get to know him better!
He's adorable! A pionus that hates water? I don't believe it... Maybe you just need to get the spray "right". Have you tried bringing him in the shower? Mine didn't like getting spritzed with a bottle but lived for shower time. He seems very sweet and outgoing as most are more shy til they've decided they know you well enough. Keep us updated!
He hates the shower too! I've tried it every way I can think of.
Congrats! Yoshi is adorable!
Have you tried vacuuming while spraying him? And he is a very handsome boy
Hello, checking in with Leia! She's a 10 month old DNA sexed female bronze wing. I've had her for a month and until I got her, her breeder let her hang out with her brother (who's being kept for breeding) and other bronze wings so hopefully she knows she's a bird rather than a human! She's not keen on stepping up yet but she adores almonds (her training treat), has learned to target to a stick, is becoming a big fan of headscratches and loves her showers.
Welcome! I'm looking forward to that you create a own thread where you also post a lot of pics of her!
We all loves pics in this section!
