No bite, Step up! Good girl, Punkin !

Post by Mikaela » Wed Sep 20, 2006 3:09 am

We have made leaps and bonds considering I have been red-ridden.

She now knows 'no bite puuunkin, be sweet girl' and 'step up'.

She likes to learn through play and she really likes me alot. She growls until I let her stick to the front of my shirt. She likes shoulders too but stays on my chest so I will cup/rub her. Her other mama must have been better endowed because I have no place on my chest for her to sit.

She started jumping at me and clinging as I went by. I thought she was being a bad girl... she was tring to get to me.

Welp, Here is my Punkin and I !

Feel ok 'bout your placement Kim. lol

She had no clue what 'step up even was so he would bite frantically. Took her from cage to work with her and all was well.

I have learned, a Quaker is not going to do anything training wise while caged. Too busy protecting their home.

Also, she isnt a really confident bird, she doesnt like to step onto fingers... she wants your palm. I havent a problem with that... whatever makes her happy.

She is very small. There are four different subspecies of the Quaker and Punkin is a M. m. cotorra... the smallest of all Quakers, with darker green feathers and alot less yellow underneath.

Check it out. Interesting.

That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all
