My new Sun..
I recently adopted a Sun from a guy.. When I first got Marley he was extreamly LOUD!! he was very spoiled.. I am guessing every time he yelled there was someone going in the room and trying to quiet him up and he learned that when he yelled someone should come see him.. So I have almost gotten him out of this behavior. I ignore him when he yells except in the morning I talk back to him.
He yells sometimes when the other birds get a little loud.. but is seeming to get out of his "flock" call.. I have a very vocal cockatiel, that loves to whistle, and a very quiet Indian Ringneck that only talks in the morning and a little during the day.
I have noticed now that Marley loves his cage more.. I don't know if he is mad at me or what?? He really does not want to come out but once I get him out he is fine.. He actually sometimes will run from me in his cage.. He steps up about 1/2 the time and comes out.. I hate to leave him in his cage but Im not sure If i should force him to come out and play or what.
My Indian ringneck loves to come out at will and sit on top of her cage and dance and goes back in when she feels like it.. If im scratching Marley the Sun and Im close to his cage, he will actually fly back over to his cage and go inside. He has lots of toys, ropes that he loves...
Is he too attached to his cage?? What is the next step?? I don't want him to be mad at me because I am ignoring him when he yells but we seem to be passing that step, and not sure what to do next.. Any help would be appreciated
