Officially 3 weeks in and he’s officially the sweetest! Despite being mildly distraught that he is completely smitten with Dad and not mom I’m thrilled with this little bird. He already happily steps up, flys over to us (though not on command by any means), spins for treats, and asks for scratches by putting his head in our hands. He is eating well though was slightly horrified by the introduction of pellets which he deemed far too healthy to be delicious, but we won’t push a big diet overhaul yet. He quite enjoys long evening naps on Dad while watching tv and is getting much more coordinated as he gets more time to play and stretch his muscles outside the cage. Words can’t really express how clumsy/ inexperienced he was 3 weeks ago. Thank you all for putting up with my updates no one has asked for! 8E909541-0F04-4C38-98EE-9578E0BE8475.jpeg D60EDC67-DBDA-429D-B5F3-E643B7676C04.jpeg 43EB325A-D306-4731-B8A8-EE5EEB2A2996.jpeg

Guess who is officially out of quarantine! Bo has proven to be a healthy, happy little bird and is ready to join the household
We moved his cage down next to Hobs and officially gave our living room to the birds lol. So far they seem slightly curious about each other but are otherwise acting like they have seen each other everyday of their lives. They are not close enough to touch through the cage, and they aren’t out of the cages together yet but so far so good! Here are some recent photos of the boys. Again we definitely have a daddy’s bird on our hands
