Oh yes Kachina Raye is fully weaned. He had been off formula according to his breeder for a month before we set up the time to come pick him up. He eats very well on a variety of foods including fresh & cooked. He will be 7 months old the 30 of this month. I don't ever bring any of my birds home from their breeders without being fully weaned and eating very well on their own. Too much can go wrong if they are not ready to make the move in my personal opinion. He was ready to come home 3 weeks before I went to pick him up, but I had to postpone the 300 mile round trip due to my hubby Jerry getting sick. He had a bad prostate infection suddenly come up and we needed to get that cleared up first. He couldn't have made the trip with the pain he was in. The breeder was fine with the delay.
Kachina Raye is basically like Angel was when I brought him home with his younger brother Roscoe. Angel was 9 months old and totally bonded to his breeder who spent extra time with him due to his disabilities. It took Angel a little over a yr to really bond with me. He held back in his feelings still missing his first Mommy. I could do anything I needed and hold him, no problem. I could tell tho that I didn't have his full love til he decided one day it was time to accept me.
Kachina will have to come to that conclusion too and then he will accept me. The special ones do bond really close to the one who was their 'savior' in the beginning when they were vulnerable babies. Understanding that makes a world of difference in the relationship. And gives me the understanding of patience to let them decide when they are ready.
