GCC Questions and more lol
Hi all! I hope this finds everyone well. I am really enjoying my GCC but I have more questions. I would like to allow her to be able to stay out of the cage more and just hang out with the family. I have purchased a play gym for her but she just does not seem to like it. When I have her out she would rather be climbing on me, not that I blame her, but it makes it kind of hard to get some things done around the house because I worry about her safety. I guess what I am looking for is how do I build up her confidence enough to get her to play on her own? Also I did purchase her from a breeder but I do not believe that the breeder gave my baby baths because she seems to be afraid of water. I have left a shallow bowl of water in her cage but she avoids it like the plague. So how do you get your babies to like their baths? I thought about just letting her shower when I do but I am not sure if that would help her get more comfy with the water or not.
When I purchased my GCC my hubby fell in love with a Cockatiel and brought her home at the same time. The Cockatiel will step up and such but she is not as tame as my GCC. The question I have about the Tiel is that she will sit in her food dish and throw seed at us. Why is she doing this? Also is there a way to get the GCC and the Tiel to be friends? They do not like each other at all and when we get them both out we have to keep them away from each other.
I know I need to post some photos but I can't get the little gals to be still long enough for me to take a good picture lol. I have not gave up yet tho and hope to post some soon. On the bright side my GCC now can say Pretty Girl and Kisses! When she is out on my shoulder and I say kisses she will say it as well and actually nibble on my lip. My heart melts every single time she does this.
Anyway thanks for reading my wall of text and I am looking forward to any answers I get! <3
