Nanna will be with us 3 weeks this Saturday. She has come a long way for sure. We are starting to see a little weight gain. Her keel still sticks out, but she's feeling not so emaciated on the sides.
Her swollen ankles are going away. I found a small feather on her cage floor. It means she is preening and regrowing.
Several days ago she went for Remmy our alpha Green cheek. She didn't have any contact, she wanted to eat him though. We had her on the couch and him in hand. She has claimed us as her humans. Only hers!
She threw food at my husbands back as he held Oggie, another GCC and even barked at him, then waltzed to her cage feeling quite proud of herself!
She likes to sit on a knee and sleep. Then she wakes and if I give her a dish of food she will sit there and make a huge mess eating yummy stuff. I then have to be vacuumed before I stand up!
Today she didn't mind either of us holding a conure while she is on the couch back or our knee.
I noticed her cage paper was damp this afternoon. She tried to take a bath in her dish, its way too small for that! She had used up half the water. This is the first time she has bathed on her own.
We are putting organic ACV in her water all the time, she guzzles it down.
We are feeding her Volkman's super parrot, a dried fruit and nut blend, Fruity parrot pellets, Kaytee brand which she loves. She will eat scrambled eggs. She nibbled my birdy corn bread today! She won't eat fresh fruit of any type yet. Veggies are a no no she says.
Today I let all 6 budgies out and they go ballistic like missiles all over the room. She took it in stride.
We call her the enforcer, she can shut down the loudest ruckus in a second with one or two LOUD squawks.
Her toes will never bend around and grip all the way, just the one front toe, one on each foot. she is getting faster on her feet. She has jumped off the couch a couple times flapping like mad. She lands on carpet and looks around some before I pick her up. We will let her keep her flights so she can fly. our apt. Is set up with the door far away from the living room. Their living room I might add. We get a love seat and thats all. Oh ya the T.V.
We dearly love this birdy.
