Quaker lovers, tell me what your young Quaker did/does? Older bird? I think Hiccup is relatively young, although s/he might be displaying reticence as we are getting to know one another. Hiccup seems unsure about taking off in flight. I watched my conure, Max, go through this when he first came home. He was a weened baby. Gus was rehomed and is a very talented flier.
