I have a 10 week old baby red rumped parrot/parakeet, and I recently posted about him. Since I've gotten him however, my anxiety rises any time he does something, as I fear he needs something or is in pain. So, I had some questions, most of these aren't breed specific, and are more just general bird behavior questions. Is standing still and flapping of the wings while chirping just him stretching/normal? Since he's still new to his cage and is pretty small, he's had some trouble with his food and water bowls. He'll chirp and anxiously pace back and fourth on his perch, chirping and lunging forward at his water bowl, as if he's trying to reach it. He'll get there, but once he does, he does the same thing trying to get back to his perch. Should I be reaching in and directing him to it? I haven't yet, and the reason is also my next question. Whenever I reach into his cage, he jumps and flutters all around the cage like crazy, and he's even escaped a few times. At the place where I got him though, they were very hands-on, so he doesn't bite if you scoop him up or get him to step up, and lets you pet him anywhere without him freezing up or biting. He chirps all the time!! Personally I don't find his small peeps and squeaks annoying, but I feel like the other people in my house and myself won't feel this way for long. Obviously, he's a bird, and going to chirp, I get that, but it always stresses me out, and I feel like he needs something. He hasn't touched any of his toys, but he looks bored? I had a budgie who constantly jingled her toys or was squawking and ripping paper apart, or swinging on her swing, but this bird hasn't noticed anything I've put in there. I had a swing that I had to take out because it scared him, and now I have a hay ball with confetti strings in it, and he doesn't care! But he's always chirping like he's bored, or pacing around. Sorry for the long post, and sorry if I sound clueless, I assure you that I did my research, but I just get so paranoid that I'd appreciate the second opinion on his behavior. If you have any questions yourself you can ask here too!
