Just a quick "hello"!

Hiya, folks! I just want to pop on here for a moment and say hello, and to say thank you. I recently purchased a very frightened green IRN from a petshop, and this site has been a tremendous help in learning the habits and behaviors involved in these very charismatic birds.

My bird's name is Skitty, named for the sale sign on her (gender is assumptive) cage, which described her as "Skittish". That was an understatement, but I held out hope that perhaps with time we could work through the fear she displayed and get her more comfortable with us and her new surroundings.

In three weeks she has shown great improvement, even to the point of only biting with slight pressure when stepping onto my fingers.

That's all for now, but I will soon get around to some pics and such at a later time.

Again, thanks for all the helpful hints.

8) Hi to you and Skitty. When you talk baby talk to your bird you can rhyme skitty with another word too. Just change the "k" :wink:
