So this is my new little Tolken. I went and checked out both babies. The female was ultra bitey and seemed very upset with my holding her. The male was much easier to handle is really seems to enjoy being around me. Hes a bit nippy but I think hes also going through his "puppy" stage so hopefully with a bit of handling and discipline he will cut that part out. Hes already improving! =D
I THINK hes trying to talk already too! At 8 weeks! He does his chirps and squawks but every once in a while he kinda starts this whispery raspy sound like hes trying to sound out a word but hasn't gotten it yet. He did it while I had him over at my step-mom's and shes 100% certain hes trying to speak. How cool is that? =D
So, after picking him up around 7ish I got to my step-moms house just after 8pm. We clipped his wings and nails and worked on "step up" a bit. Hes actually catching on very quickly already! I really think hes going to be a quick learner =D
Another cool thing, my step-mom GAVE me her extra cage! Yay! That saves me money and time trying to hunt one down. Personally I think its plenty large enough for the little guy.
So, I loaded up the cage and made it home around 9:30ish. Poor little Tolken. I don't think hes ever been up this late. Lol he fell asleep on the ride home.
Hes fallen off of the bars on his cage a few times. Is that just a normal clutzy baby?
Anyway, her is Tolken and his awesome new cage!
His old cage for size comparison!
