hello irn lovers :)

Post by DeeDeeLutino » Fri Aug 05, 2011 9:28 pm

Hi all,
I have been reading the forum for a while and two weeks ago I brought my baby home, I do not know the sex and i wonder hmmm.
He/she enjoys playing with my green cheek that's around 2 years old, very crazy hyper green cheek .

He/she is 3 month old, is very quiet and still getting used to me but very very tame :)

I love them.

have fun, learn lots and be happy with your new friend!

He/she is very sweet but protective of it's cage, when I take it out I try that he/she cannt see the cage or he'll just try to come back to it, but otherwise eats of my hand and let me rub it's head etc..
I am having a problem trying to introduce it to new foods, he/she only wants to eat a seed/nut/dried fruit mix that he/she was being fed when I brought it home.
He/she makes many sounds when I talk to him/her but overall very quiet and no where near as curious or active as my crazy green cheek.

The fascination with the cage is because he is still unsure of his surroundings. That's where he feels safe. Over time that will change. My guess is the food is also about what he's used to. Keep trying and see how he goes. You can try mixing his fav food with the food you'd like him to eat.

Hello! :D I'm new to IRNs and this forum as well. Your birds are gorgeous!

My little one is around 4 months old, and does the same thing with his cage. He'll come out to sit with us for a while, but he often tries to get back to his cage. He's completely tame, just likes his cage.

Here's to hoping both our little ones open up a bit more soon. :D
