Taking Filbert out several times a day to the garden or to be with his mother for a while, which she uses to feeds and encourages him to fly has become a tradition in our house-hold.
It’s fun spending time with them in the garden, the mother has lost a lot of her timidity around us and now comes even within a meter and has no qualms on feeding her baby at that distance from us either.
Filbert does not exhibit any ill effects from these experiences. He comes back to hand quite readily and continues to play with his toys in his cage or waddles about the house or on someone’s shoulder.
In fact, he is spending an awful lot more time outside his cage than in it!
Have a wonderful Friday my friends!
