Yeah, its actually quite amazing how quickly they pick things up. It only took about 2 days to teach him how to shake. As for the kisses, All we did was say 'kiss' then put our nose up to his beak. after a while he'd walk over and lean in to kiss us first When he was learning we found it was easier ...

Hemi

yes, Hemi had an accident, gashed his foot and now he has a bucket over his head. He is definitely not happy at all! His foot has been glued up now, so that isn't a problem -at the moment-, but it is the bucket I worry about now! I don't think he'd be able to reach his food and water bowl =( has any...

Hemi also does this when he doesn't want me near his toys, his cage, or MY girlfriend :D (yes! he loves her, and gets all defensive when I try to un-tangle him from her hair) So I could be wrong, but I strongly believe its a territorial thing also!

Hemi also likes peas and corn...more so the corn ;)
he tends to leave the peas as a last resort occasionally :)
his colours are starting to become more pronounced and i can't wait till he is finished moulting

can anyone give me an idea of how long it takes for their first moult?

Birds outside

Yes Hemi's wing is clipped so if he tries to fly he doesn't get far at all. Also when he's on my finger etc, he doesn't actually even look to fly anywhere. He loves it outside though, especially in the bushes and trees. But I have to be very careful and watch him all the time in case he climbs too h...

Hello, My ringneck is such a sweet bird but he's also quite moody with his biting. 50% of the time he'll let me scratch him, pat him and like it, the other 50% of the time he attacks -not always- hard, but its more of a defensive sort of thing.
