Thanks everyone! It really does sound like a great big "matter of oppinion thing" I think the idea of "a little bit of everything " is best as it is natural for hookbill birds to husk seeds I woyuld never take them away from Mojito 100%, ideally I'd like to reduce it to his favor...

Hey folks. I have decided to switch Mojitos main diet to pellets. My decision is firm. I only mention this because I have tried on previous occasions and have flaked out. He refuses to eat them.

I think that if she was "handraised" and is still young she will be farmiliar with hands and may be more willing to let you handle her outside her cage. That was my experience anyhow. Mojito does not like to be handled while he is in his cage, or backed into a corner. As soon as he comes o...

Is she in her cage when you approach her? I know Mojito did not like to be approached while he was in his cage at first. I just let him come out of his cage on his own, once he was outside he was happy to step up and be handled. It's as if his cage is "his" space, his safe place where he l...

Peanuts are Mojitos "I'll do anything you want me to, just give me the damn peanut" treat. They are high in fat so he does not get many, but holy cow he LOVES them. I'm sure he knows that anything else, he gets anyways. These little guys are so smart & clever. He never stops amazing me!

Hi all. I have a quick question. In general, would you say that IRNs are slow and deliberate birds? Mojito is very slow moving and likes for us to move very slowly (unless there is corn involved, then he sure can move it ). Perhaps, it is just the way when IRNs are babies. Maybe h/she just behaves t...
