Cora – Day 9

Sorry I missed a few after the working shift. I had so much to catch up on.

A few mishaps –

Couldn’t get Cora back into her cage one day.

Went to make dinner and left the gas on.

Then left the Wok in the oven yesterday and nearly melted it!

I’ve struggled like crazy to keep these two love bugs separate, got a new cage, Paul was fixing it and they got in the hallway together, they’re like ninja’s I swear. So they actually got a face to face meet. Scary stuff.

But now, things have settled much better again, so I’m sure there is going to be lots of fun. I’m nervous for them getting too close, but now she’s here, she’s staying 🙂

The two of them are tucked up now, beak grinding, that has to be the best sound EVER!

Cora – Day 5

Well the little madam is settling in well. Lol, she lunged at me this morning. Proper growled and lunged. This might get interesting today, with the training I have planned for her. EEEP. However, I didn’t back off. Stood my ground with her and let her see I wasn’t a threat even though for some bizarre reason today she thought I was.

So, training began and now I’ve had the door open for twenty minutes. She’s been out, sat on top of the cage, beak grinding I might add… and has now gone back in for some more breakfast.

She’s going to have some freedom today. I know her favourite treat to get her back in. Black Grapes, although there isn’t much in the nutritional sense, it’s what she adores, and goes for first. Even over the nuts….

Leaving her to settle in the dining room, and hoping that when I go back in the living room Bobby won’t escape, or today might just get even worse, and I don’t want that. He has to steer clear, they’re supposed to be in QT…  love bugs. x out

Cora – Day 4

Cora today was going bonkers over Bobby flying about although she couldn’t see him she could sure hear him and respond. And him for her. It really is love at first sound. I would never have thought it.

So the sneaky bird Bobby, managed to get back in to see her and when I found him this time, he was dancing to her and she was open beaked accepting food from him. facepalm.

When we took him away, she wasn’t happy. Clearly and resumed pacing.

So, normally QT is essential for birds, but they’re already managed to break it. The joy of not having doors that close and the species of bird being the same. The fact that they clearly want to be together is going to prove impossible to stop. I’ve been wondering if it would just be easier on them both to be in the same room. So we’re going to play about and see if both cages will fit. Not easy in my 10ft, by 8ft room.

🙂 Will keep you updated. And seeing as Cora has joined the flock a vet visit alongside ‘chubby’ will do well.

Now I’ll have to weigh them both, and I’m really sure Cora will get used to things quicker if Bobby’s her influence, he’s a little gem 🙂 honest….
