how to stop me smooching my irn

Post by pearl » Sun Jun 08, 2008 11:18 am

Right what happens is when ever he starts trusting me and taking food from my hand i just ruin it by holding him and giving him loads of kisses and hugs nd then he starts to be scared by me n doesnt come near me or takes food from me for a short while and then he starts trusting me again and then i end up doing that again how do i stop my self doing that . By the way am not talking about my rose pictured in my sig (she is ever so good and always lets me smooch her and trusts me like anything ) am talking about my new green male irn who i think has trust issues or may be doesnt like me as much
:roll:

so plz give me any tips you guys have

:lol: :lol: :lol: i know but what can i do i cant resist his perfectly set green fur and those lovely cute eyes they beg me to give him hugs and kisses

and only the people who actually own a ringneck or any other bird like the people on this forum understand that feeling

my family thinks am turning in to one of those crazy old cat ladies :lol: :lol:
and my husband is jealous of my birds both rose and george and oh yeah not to mention my rose is jealous of my hubby she always fly and comes to me for love when am sitting and talking to my hubby :wink:

I know the feeling and I can´t get in two feets range from Watto, he ha´s making huge progress so I wan´t rush him, but a part of me just want to take him and cuddle.

I just go in for the smooches anyway! I might get a little growl and my little guy might try to move away, but I smooch and smooch and smooch. He tolerates it now.

This is problem many of us have and I'm glad you brought this up. There needs to be a support group for serial smoochers anonomous! There is no escape from us!

I know the feeling.. Yoda is terrified of smoochies.. but jealous when Jibby gets them.. :roll:
I will resist if Yoda is facing me (he gets that evil 'you touch.. you die' look.. avoid putting smoochie lips anywhere near this!) but as soon as he turns his back I go in for the 'smooch' and he trys everything to get away. He still wont let me smooch and I feel bad because, he seems to trust me, but then I go and scare him. :(

What I am trying (when I dont give in to the temptations of smoochies) is.. letting him be comfortable with my face, he has a fascination with my freckles, so I just let him be without trying to kiss. Just making him as comfortable with the whole face as possible, and teaching 'boundries' (no beaks anywhere near eyes!).. I think Yodas more terrified of the 'unpredictable smoochie' than the 'smoochie' itself. So I think it would help if hes calm and relaxed firstly. I'm letting him explore me!
Luckily I havnt been bitten yet! Do not allow biting and if you arent comfortable with a bird around your face, dont try it. Know your birds body language and read it well.. it could save you the pain. A bite on the hand hurts, but a bite on the lip makes a grown man cry.. and bleed!

Jibby on the other hand, thinks its better to give in than to try and escape. He's got that look of 'oh no.. not again.. help me pahleez!' and looks for an escape.. but lowers his head for smoochies anyway, because he knows well enough that hes not going to escape the evil smoochie mummy. He even lowers his head whenever I approach him now. He knows the drill! He loves it.. I know.. hes just stubborn sometimes! :wink:

Give it some time, wouldnt you be a lil uncomfortable if someone you barely know, just smooched you out of nowhere? Build a relationship first, let the bub explore you! :wink:

My suggestion is just keep smooching that bird who knows maybe he will give in, hee hee. Image

Ha ha ha ha ha! That’s so funny! I know..i know! I hear you pearl. I have an idea, keep rose with you and when you feel the need to smooch your new green ringneck -- grab rose and smooch her to death. That should help relieve your sudden urges! Ha ha ha ..what a funny post!

But on a more serious note—just keep doing your thing and keep working w/ your new ringneck—he’ll come around! :D

Your bud :wink: ,
