If you haven't found a cage yet, check out http://birdcages4less.com/ I've gotten some great deals there.

Also, there are a couple things on the NON safe list of foods, I didn't see mentioned. Avocado and apple seeds. Avocado, I don't remember why exactly, but apple seeds contain cyanide.

Here is a small siggy tag of my flock.



Congradulations on your new addition, birds are such fun.

That's your call but typically they socialize with people much better without them. Trust me, he will eat even if he sulks for a day or two. Perhaps you could replace the mirror with a nice honey stick treat to ease the transition.

i had a cockatiel that would say a few things...pretty bird, hi charlie, pretty charlie. he would also wolf whistle and do a 'bob white' imitation.

just like mason said, if you offer a finger right at his chest, he will step up on it. maybe not at first, but eventually. i used to tell charlie, "step up." and he did.

charlie could fly pretty well, even if i trimmed his flights. he didn't like to leave my finger but if i gave him a gentle toss (kind of a gentle swooping up in the air motion) he would take flight. it was cool. he'd fly a couple of laps around my house and then settle somewhere.

Very good point, I forgot about the avocado and apple seeds.

Yes, avocado and apple seeds are toxic to them Avocado causes serious gastric problems and apple seeds can kill them.
