I hope you are having luck!I am a adopted single featherd
daughter parent that works long shifts.
What works for Lola seems to be rides whenever
possible,old rock music,being outside even though shes
almost full flighted,on the deck or in her favorite fruit
trees she will stay in them for hours."Beware of hawks"
We tend to forget their need of being so vocal.
My bird is so very loving she would always stay on your lap
and be rubbed I have learned to do that shorter periods of
My bird dances to music also so we used to dance to wear
her down before bedtime but she became a little agressive
which slowed this activity down.
I have also read recently that they need to hunt some such
as a treat hidden in a toy.
I am sure u have had some good and repeated advice but I
hope alot has helped.
