I’m going to try and keep a record of what Cora is like. From her arrival –
So starting from her first day. She was pretty nervous. Although not totally as stressed as I first thought she might be. I’m only going off what my Bobby was like for comparison and he was really freaked out. She was eating well, poop a little runny, but she’d had a lot of fruit and veg, and also a hard day. Will monitor it over the next few days.
Due to them both having an exciting day. Both Irn’s went to bed early 7.30pm.
Breakfast and wake up was at 8am this morning, so a good rest. Both tucked right into their chop and veggies. Cora went straight for the apple. A thing that Bobby did also when first here. When I gave her some seed later on this afternoon, the peanut of course was then fav. So removed all other peanuts and tried to tempt her over with one.
Not flying away from me, no moving too much out of the way. She’s a lot tamer than Bobby was, it took me a week to be even able to put my hand near the cage without him freaking out. Cora’s behaviour this afternoon while eating dinner was also a bit odd. She wanted to get out of course and eat what I was having. But it’s too soon for that. Maybe in a few day’s I might start allowing her to see the open door.
Paul managed to get a couple of slightly better pictures.
So you can see her a bit better, she’s really cute, and tiny. Her tail is in a bad way, very grotty and one of them is almost 2 inch shorter than the other, I’m assuming it snapped off or she’s barbed it at some point. It will soon moult out though I have no doubt, Bobby was only here a couple of weeks and he started to shed feathers.
So, for the first day, she’s done amazingly well so far. Made one tiny little squark which then got Bobby all excited. lol
I’m really looking forward to her trusting me more. She’s adorable!
