Oooh hello! Daisy sounds a sweetie, I`m deciding B&G`s seem much steadier and calmer than Greenwings even though people always say opposite.

The main thing is, you are looking to do right by Daisy from the start, and you have a good support network here!!

Thanks Steve! I can`t believe you`re guys so nice!!!!! Thanks god for this site Smile
We have our Daisy at home, she is 16 weeks tomorrow.
About 5 minutes later after she was put on a stand, she was eating her seeds!!! Already! Very Happy
I`ve got her food, which I will blend together tomorrow morning.
She`ll get that once in a morning and once in evening. During the day she`ll have some fruit, veg. and seeds.
She looks happy, wants to play all the time, she loves toys (when i was reading some of your posts last week, I was afraid that she will
not like them as well) but I bought one toy for her 3 weeks ago and left it there so she can get used to it and today took it
with her....
Now she is falling asleep Smile I will put her in cage for the night for her safety...
Will let you know tomorrow how we get on.
Nite everyone x

Glad she's home safe. Just one more point if you feel she needs more than 2 feeds a day which I would gaurentee she will need make sure you give her as much formula as possible regardless what the breeder says you need to give her enough weight because she will lose up to 18 percent of her weight as soon as she is weaned so keep her feeds up she is to young to go onto seed mate.

Do make sure she gets plenty of time to rest, she is young and will need more sleep than an older bird.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Daisy is resting a lot, of course she`s a baby Smile
I make sure she`s got plenty of food, actually she was eating quite a lot today even her seeds...
She loves cuddles!!!! And Jessica`s (my 3 year old) toys Very Happy which is good, she is not afraid and explores everything
She didn`t like the cage though when I put her there for a sleep and she stayed on the bottom all night.
Will see how she`s gonna be tonight.....
See you`s later

Awwww, we are waiting for pictures! Have you tried putting a perch down low for her, I'd imagine being high up might be a bit daunting

Do you use Photobucket? If you do then you can copy and paste the IMG code into this box and the pics should appear. Smile
Look forward to seeing them, Daisy sounds beautiful bless her!

Thank you Hollie Smile she is isn`t she...
I`ll try to put the perch down so she can be more comfortable.
There is a perch on the top of the cage with the ladder and 2 bowls which is her favourite spot since 7pm (why I bought that big stand!!!!???? only joking..... Laughing
Do you think I shall leave her there during the night or shall I put her in a cage for her safety? Just in case she might get scared of something....
Good night everyone Sleep

Just catching up here and thought I say HI to Sarah and love the blue quaker. I think they are super birds, have a friend who owns one and is a real character and a talented talker. Smile

Also HI to Hana. I shall when got a little more time go looking for the pictures of your new addition. I love the B &G's and if ever had a macaw it would be one of them I thinks.

You will get some good advice here from many folk who know their species so is helpful and is something I think we all would agree we learning more and more each day. I know I do with our little gang!

Look forward to chatting more as time goes on. Smile

I didn`t.... And she was fine, she stayed on the top of her perch Smile
But today she was a bit nervous, like wanted to fly away, walking about like I have to get out of here...!!
Well, she is much calmer now, maybe she needed to stretch her wings, but our front room is like after hurricane!! Very Happy
Will see how she`ll be after her nap.......

Awwww it`s just great!!!!!
I understand her now exactly what she wants and needs.... Smile
Only my partner feels a bit down, cos when he gets close to her-she`s walking away, but when she see me (or hear), she`s demanding my attention!
I`m a meter from her stand now and think she`s gonna fly to my shoulder....
She eats a lot!!! 3 times a day her formula and lots of seeds and fruits.
Lots of cuddles but she knows I need some time for myself so leave her on stand and she`s playing with her toys (which she LOVES!!!) Very Happy
Only one thing, I think she doesn`t know that her bites hurts! Smile she`s playing with my fingers but sometimes squeeze so much, I`m telling her
it hurts... must teach her not to do it. Any ideas.....?
How are you`s all?
Have a great evening everyone and happy Halloween

Glad to hear she is doing well. With your partner you must let him play with her aswell dont let her get to bonded to you really socialise her i cant stress enought how important that is!

She isnt biting she thinks your hand is food amd when she doesnt get food from it she will grip harder!
And all bird judge everything with there beaks dont tell her off for it just pull away and say nothing

This, and the coming months are vital in your Daisys training. In the wild, she would learn social skills from her parents, and other birds, so YOU have to be both. You mention that you need time to yourself, Daisy also does. Everyone wants to cuddle and love their baby bird non-stop, have them with them all the time, but how sustainable will this be for the rest of Daisys life? What if your circumstances change and you can't spend as much time with Daisy? These sort of scenarios are when birds develop problems, because they've never learnt to spend time by themselves and are completely reliant on human interaction. Just my opinion, a bird that is just as happy being by itself as being with a person is a well rounded individual! As Steve says, make sure she is socialised, I've had a blue and gold that was bonded to only me, and as much as people say oh I'd love a bird that just loves me, its unhealthy and actually pretty sad to see! She's using that beak to discover and test, just as babies do with hands. Again, as steve says, just remove hands or distract, and don't say anything! Also, make sure she's sleeping in that cage, there are so many dangerous things in the house when you aren't paying attention, this is the perfect time to put guidelines like that in place.

Yes, I am letting her socialize, we have a big family, lots of kids around who is getting here to have a look on Daisy (but now most of them are afraid to touch her but with our help they are more and more confident).
The thing is, that I`m here all day alone till evening with Jessica (and Daisy LOVES Jessica as well), and Daisy needs some cuddles.... But when my partner gets home, I give him the bottle to feed her and telling him to have cuddles with her (they cuddle now for a long time Smile ) so I hope she won`t stick only with me! I really do!!
I do realize that Daisy needs to be "herself" that`s why I DON`t cuddle with her so much like I`d wish Very Happy and let her on the stand, playing with toys or just rest.
I know I won`t be doing anything else if I DO!
OK so she thinks my finger is a food-I didn`t know that Very Happy I know they are testing everything with their beak.... but my fingers ain`t food Daisy Very Happy
We leave her in cage over night and she sleeps on the top perch as soon as we leave the room and turn the light off so I hope this will last.. Smile
Thank you guys for all your advices and support!! Smile
I`ll see you soon

Aww bless Daisy!

Its good your leaving her to her own devices what I did was let my macaw as a baby up until about 18 months old have 1 to 2 hours of rest inside his cage alone with no distractions so he would learn to play with toys, have a snooze or anything just so he got used to time alone as i work full time he had to have learnt to play and keep entertained!

That`s a good idea leave her in her cage for couple of hours.... I work from home, so there`s not a problem but she has to learn to have time on her own. I contacted DEFRA about travelling with Daisy (especially to Czech rep.) but they don`t hold forms to this country, have to find from there....
I know she has to have her passport and vet papers ready before leaving... Do you have some experiences with travelling with parrot?
They say it will be much easier and cheaper from January 2012 so I hope there won`t be a problem. But we will travel with her maybe in 2 years so there`s plenty of time to find out Smile
So if you`re working full time Steve, your macaw is all alone at home for that long? He must have lots of toys to play with Very Happy
But true my dad`s macaw is at home alone as well. Not during the winter because my dad`s wife`s there. But from later spring till early autumn (when she`s working on our garden) he is lonely, but they say he sleeps a lot when they`re not there. He`s afraid of any toys so he doesn`t play which is a shame really!!
Ok time to bed Nite everyone

Depends on shifts and my partners shifts, sometimes 2 hours sometimes 8 it just depends and they are bonded so have each other which is a massive relief for me and them

Yeah that`s great they can make each other company Smile
Did you hear about BIRD TRICKS videos? The name of the guy is Chat. I registered on their pages about month ago, they send me some adverts about their training videos.... Do you think it might be good? Because I want to train Daisy, I have some ideas, but would need some help here...
She through out the seeds from her bowl sometimes so every time she does that I take her food away and then put it back. So I hope she will get it soon Very Happy
She also likes to be on the very top so if you know the rain forest stand, there is a long pole for hanging toys and when she`s got her "moments" she climb up again and again.... First I took it away, every time she went up. Now I take her down on the perch every time she does that but it`s like 20 times Very Happy
She feels confident with us and trusts me that`s the main thing- today I had her on my palm lying like a baby on her back and she liked it- I LOVE THAT ONE!! Very Happy
