I would normally agree however Mojo is very much a raptor at the moment she is biting everyone me, Tracy and KiKi..
Learning some very subbtle signals for her at the moment.
Oh no! My budgies are also acting up... hormonal season and all.

Pippen still tries to bite but she's learning the word gentle and sometimes she just grabs without really trying to punch holes. She likes her head scritches through the bars but gets excited and starts nipping and grabbing sometimes.

Mojo is very much a nesty little crank at the moment comes out of her cage gives me a kiss and then becomes the devil bird for a while annoying everyone, normal service is usually resumed after a while though.
I have had to re visit bite training with Mojo putting her down and telling her no bites poor girl is hormonal and doesnt know whats going on.
On the whole she is good though and gets onside after a while, more concerned about her aggresion with KeeK however she just flys to me now when it all becomes to much.

Good, Keeks has learned your the security provider and not to fight with Mojo as it will end badly if she gets serious. We've got the Foster Conures and our little flock so it gets busy and noisy around here. I never realized all the different sizes and color they come in till now.

So last weekend i made some changes with KeeKs cage i removed a couple of her toys and added 4 x 20" manzita perches to try and encorage her to move about her cage a bit more, i then added a couple of toys yesterday that i got from Shawna and tied a foraging cup to one of the perches. 20220413_183823.jpg
I was pleased to brush up a load of bits from the toys up today that she had a go of.
I am going to replace the two contoured dowl perches with 20" natural perches.
She is getting around her cage more.
I also gave Mojo her moon swing she took a instant like to it and decided she would rather destroy it than swing on it.

If they dont eat the whole chilli they always strip it of seeds.

It's hard to believe that Mojo has been part of my life for over a year now :faint:

Yes i missed my girls gotcha day :think1:

To be fair it hasnt seemed like a year as it has been such a learning curve as everyday is a school day.
She makes me smile
Happy Gotcha day Mojo

Mojo is in a shocking mood at the moment so much so that KiKi's daily objective is being where Mojo isnt.
So Mojo hasnt been getting preened so wanted me to scritch her head, KiKi must have felt a bit left out.

Probably mating season and her harmones are getting the best of her for now. At least she can still settle down and hang out with some supervision till things even out for her.
