Hi! I've been around some months ago to ask about parrotlets and now I got a blue little one named Twitter since October 7th. He was 7-8 weeks old then. He is already very comfortable with me, like to get feathers service with scratch and cuddles. We have a special moment in the bathroom every day where he can fly, see himself in the mirror and play peek-a-boo. He climbs on my finger when I pick him from the lamp, and he can also fly to it. He climbs if I put one finger in front of the other like steps. I have tried to let him fly in the kitchen, where he has his cage, but there he would only fly to some high places and sit, not interested in coming to me then. He did bite much the first days but I -hopefully- taught him not to, and he is much better now. However today he didn't want to come out of his cage for our cuddle and play time, he had a temper tantrum when I insisted. We had a discussion about that and agreed that we would wait a little. He came later on and had a nice scratch-my-new-feathers-clean-please session. I feel that we have acheived much already and I'm very happy about that. I have 2 budgies I never could tame so I'm delighted with Twitter, but I also notice that he is much more clever and needs more stimulation, so I would like to start training him to do tricks but I don't want to go too fast either. I have the 2 wild budgies in the living-room so I can not let Twitter fly freely to be with me all the time, he comes out only for cuddle time. He hears the budgies but has never met them and I'd rather not let them since the budgies are very bad influence on new babies that are supposed to get tame. We had a baby budgie last winter, he was tame when he came, they turned him into a rogue in two weeks, had to send him away... So, back to Twitter. Is he still too young for training? Should I wait for him to be more comfortable with us before we begin to "work"? If it isn't too early, what should we begin with?
