Is This Enough
I'm wondering whether Freddie is getting enough interaction. His day starts at 8AM...he's brought out of the sleep room to his bigger day cage. He has breakfast. We talk a little. I have tea, and shower. The little guys get flying time....Levi gets window perch time, which he loves. This usually lasts for about two hours...sometimes more, depending on their mood. Freddie gets talked to, while he waits his turn. Around 1:30, Fred's cage door is opened. He spends the next couple of hours either out or in his cage...it's his choice. He spends as much time in, as he does out, but the door is open. Around 5PM is supper...all birds in cages. After supper, Freddie gets moved into his sleep cage, with door open,and spends time in the kitchen with me, while I make and clean up from supper. Again, I'm talking to him....At 6PM, Fred is wheeled into the sleep room...he's usually yawning and preening around this time. It's quiet time, in there, and blinds get drawn at 8PM.
I've had Freddie almost a month, and there's little hands on interaction. I do move him from cage to cage...but that's about it. I sit in front of his cage sometimes, and give him an opportunity to sit on me, but he's not really interested.
On nice days, all birds spend most of the day on the patio in the sun. They're caged, so it's not really out of cage time, but at least, it's different.
Do you think he's getting enough attention...
