Cabu came to live with my husband and I on August 1st 2014. His hatch date is 6/5/14 so he wasn't weaned yet. I hand fed him 3 times a day until he started refusing his formula. I gave him millet and pellets and he dove in head first.
He's now completely weaned and my baby is my best friend.
(don't tell my husband, he still thinks he is).
Cabu tries to say step up. He says it well enough that I understand him. I'm trying to get him to say momma's baby.
He's just 10 weeks old so it may take a while.
Cabu loves his bath. He beaked around it at first then dove in splashing like a toddler.
He's not fond of his fresh foods yet but I'm still pushing them. He has to like something besides sweet potatoes.
I'm on disability and spend every day with him. He'll go to my husband but he'd rather be with me :)
People say they are noisy. I guess they never had children. He's quiet compared to how my kids were.
Cabu spends a lot of time on my shoulder. He likes to preen my hair.
My favorite time is after bath. He snuggles into my neck and sleeps until he's dried off.
I love this little guy <3
