Update on my new IRN Bullet.

Hi all, we have had bullet 2 weeks as of yesterday and have seen a lot of progress. I can hold him on my hands away from the cage, I still get bites, but not as bad as I use to. Some are playful, some make me bleed but I think he is still a little unsure. We let him play on his play stand most of the day and in the evening before bed. He is cage aggressive, but I can't blame, especially with him being new. He is just now making more noise, but still pretty quiet and loves music and tv. lol. My hands are finally healing from the extreme bites during his first week here. Being patient has really worked and now he gets very curious about us when he is out. Oh and just like kermit, he loves angry bird cat balls and throws them just so we pick them back up for him, LOL.

Thanks guys, added a few more toys to his new cage, and he has been very busy playing with them. He loves to shred toys, so definitely going to get him some more of them. Still getting bit at least once a day, but It is getting better, and I know patience is the key with these birds. I am so thankful that I researched these birds for over 2 years before deciding to get one, this way I knew about the biting and temperament of the bird and what to expect. Plus having my close friend that breeds them allow me to visit and play with her babies also helped since I learned a lot from her. Bullet is doing very well, and is very playful. He is already mumbling different noises that are just too cute. I will post some more photos this week of his new cage and all.

Oh here is kermit playing chase on my bed, LOL he loves running from us so he doesn't have to go in the cage at night, he would rather stay out constantly. LOLOL
