Thanks for the info!
Sorry it took so long to get back on TB, but decided to clean Sunny's cage (long story) and then went to church.
Sunny has more than enough attention from me. He is taking a long time to get over being fearful of my HAND. The guy that got him out of his cage traumatized him, I think.
To make a long story short is he gets excited now and then and chatters and calls me when I get on the computer etc. Today the sun was pretty good so took advantage of his chipper behavior.
Now I feel guilty! I very gently took him out of his cage to put him into the other little carrier thingee and the little squirmy bird got loose and was flying into walls and doors and finally the mirror in the bathroom and landed in the sink where I was able to pick him up...he actually was glad I had him I think. I pray he didn't hit anything too hard as he doesn't look hurt, but scared only. Once I had him held correctly he settled down and allowed me to pet his head and cut his toenails before putting him in the carrier. He tried to bite me, but only softly (he was being gentle as I know how a real bite feels..poor baby!
Cage all clean, Sunny back in and toys arranged etc and he seems happy again. Chattered with me andsat in his swing for some time. He went to bed around 8-8:30 pm his regular time. Now....I hope he will be alright in the morning. Gave him lots of praise and treat when he was settled and he munched away on it.
What a stressful day it turned out to be for both of us. He is like my baby and I don't know what I'd do without him now.
Sorry for the long story, but needed to write about it. Don't know who was more shook up, him or me!
