so this week I learned that Pavi has a bottomless pit for a stomach. He’s very very active and young and growing so I expect to have a healthy appetite but he is very different from my others. All of my others have been difficult to transition from those seed mixes they were on when they came to me. From the start, even though he was weaned to seed, Pavi has been ravenous for fresh food. I’m pretty good with nutrition and try to feed greens that are lower in oxilates and fruits that have good value to them and not just sugar. I’ve never had to measure chop. My others eat what they want and leave the rest to go play or move on the dry stuff like pellets and avicakes. Not Pavi. I swear if I filled a pint container with peppers and corn and carrots and berries and spinach and parsley etc, he’d eat the whole pint over the course of the day. So the question is, how much fresh food is too much? He isn’t going to limit himself so I guess I have to. The vet says, let him have it. He’ll stop when he’s full....... ahhhhhh...then he’s never full. Lol. I kind of wonder if he eats as much of it as he does because it’s something we do together that doesn’t frighten him. His foods are cut into foot size pieces and lately he eats a lot of it perched on the edge of my iPad and he will intentionally drop pieces onto my lap so he can crawl down and sit there. He will sometimes crawl up to my shoulder and barely avoids my hands but still isn’t sure about them. He has begun exploring my hands with his beak and I am always sooooo happy when i reach that phase with a new bird (NOT). Lol He’s such a funny little guy. He has started making kiss sounds and popped out with half of peek a boo “peeka peeka” that he’s learned from bird videos. It sounds like I have a Pokémon in my house. If I sit in my normal spot and call him, he’ll come over his bridge then fly down to the edge of the iPad. He will walk to my hand to take a treat now. He has great aim with his landings for a baby as he can usually even pull off a landing on the edge of my phone. I think we are in a really good place now. I do hope that the move won’t set us back to far. We are still a couple months from moving and hopefully he’ll be bonded enough by then that not too much will change.
