It's hard for me to know exactly what each bird will do when going into a new home. Let me first start from giving you an idea on what the bird is seeing. I'm the only handler that works with the birds. I hand feed the young and they grow up seeing me as Mom. As the young grow up they're in a room full of other birds that are being hand fed and trained as well. Now each bird goes into it's new home that Moms not at nor are all the other birds it grew up around. The people are new, the sounds, colors of the room, everything is new. Now the fear kicks in. The bird is uncertain on what's going on and doesn't understand the change. New owners might wear glasses or not, have a hat on or not, paint your nails or not, like bright colors or not. These are the things to think about that the bird is seeing or hearing. The room they grew up in is a white room with just a few pictures. Mom ~ that's me~ little boring wearing blue jeans and t-shirts (grey, black, navy blue or white) I don't paint my nails and most of the time my hair is always up. I don't want you to try and copy what they're used too I just want you to understand what they're seeing. They will get used to your way of living just give them a little time to adjust. The best thing to help your birds is to start handling your birds right away. This part is very important. The faster the bird gets used to you and the way you handle them the faster they will start to settle in. It could take 24-48 hours for a bird to get used to it's new owner (some don't take this long) and 1-2 weeks for them to get used to it's new surroundings. This page is set up to hopefully help you understand your bird better and to help your bird to settle in faster.
So lets get started.
