So Mojo is definitely bonding to me. He is regurgitating (def not vomit) although not producing anything thankfully. We have been working on target training, and he knows "target" (MOSTLY) "turn around" and "wave." He also understands "come here," is starting to get "go back" and knows step up and down. He also has learned that is he chooses to fly to me he (about 90%) needs to hover until I offer a finger and not just drop on my head or arm. But He also is trying to spend more time with me than not when he is out. This is all in the first 6 weeks.
My concern is how do I keep him from over bonding? I guess my question is can I keep training him at this point and not notice bad behavior? I am focus focusing on training and guidelines so he understands the rules of the house. I am not saying I don't want him bonded. I work long hours and ensured he was set up with lots of enrichment and toys from day one. I also made sure I didn't spend more time with him in the beginning than I could everyday long term, so out routine has been consistent. I feel as though I have done everything right in my circumstance, but he is my first non 'tiel or budgie and I'd like to make sure there isn't more I may be missing.
He's such a good bird!
