Well I brought the new Jenday home this week after spending
alot of time with her.. I bring her home and she falls
inlove with my other half... she fallows him everywere and
screams if he does not hold her when she is out of cage...
she is just a sweetie wants to be with both of us and on
someones shoulder .. she is quite the little gymnist as
well... she is doing good.. I think its the first time she
has ever had fresh fruit and veggies and cooked food.. she
likes her apple , mango and loved the oatmeal cookie he was
eating.. lol .. I have offered her mixed veggies . cooked
egg ect.. but it may take her a while.. she is not into her
toys at all unlike my quaker who loves his toys... I hear
thats kinda weird for a jenday?
As far as your Bird I think with anybird they just need to
build trust in you... just take time to talk to it feed it
some favorite things and just be patient...it took me a year
to get my Quaker to come around..he came from a abusing
situation locked in his cage covered and in a basement.. he
plucked as a result and hated people.. he is now just a
sweetie only to me at this time but its way better than he
used to be... I love him Hang in there!
