Post: Taming an injured baby
Posted by New Baby on 4/20/07
I recently was given a vet cleared and healed young
budgie. He/she is about 10 wks. and had flown into a
window and injured a wing. The vet has given the final
clearence of health and it appears the wing has healed.
My question, he/she appears very calm and good for a parent
raised youngster. As long as I move slowly and quietly the
bird will step onto my finger and perch on our playgym. I
don't want to move to quickly with him/her and stress the
bird out. He seems to be adapting very well but I'm don't
want the bird to still be feeling any pain for the wing
injury and have this be the reason he/she is acting so nice.
What signs do you think would assist in backing off that
stress might be an issue? He is eating and drinking well.
Any input on working with this special baby will be greatly
appreciated. I'm in no hurry to rush the baby, so taking
things slowly is my plan, I just want to be sure each step
is happily being taken with the bird as well.
