New Toys in Cage
I felt bad that the time Im at work and My Yellow Nape is home in his cage he is about 2 yrs old, my boyfriend is there and talks/plays with him, but he runs errands and sleeps because he works 3rd shift I work 1st.
I had a mommy moment and wanted to get him toys to play with. He had seemed to be content with nothing in there (of course he has plenty of fresh water and his food) but I know he needs stimulation so I bought a rope, a ladder, a babble ball (it talks and makes bird and other animal sounds when he touches it) and a cuttle bone thats orange flavored, just to start to see how he does with them.
He didnt want to go near anything, and stayed in the corner and wouldnt go near his perch. I tried to coax him out with some fruit treats he did come out and get them but then went back to the corner and stayed there.
My boyfriend says he just needs to get used to the things we put in there. This morning he was on his perch, but he was growling and he had a lot more molted feathers than what has been in his cage. Ive done lots of research on his type before I got him but mabye I missed something? Did I do something wrong, or did I just royally piss off my bird?
