I realized I never posted an update on their cage in this thread I ordered this one and I love it! It was pretty difficult to set up but once it was complete, it's wonderful! It's double the size of their old cage, and they can stretch their wings and fly in it!
There are a lot of little doors on the sides that a bird could easily open and slip out of so I zip-tied them shut because I'm not using them anyways.
I added apple branches from my orchard and a ladder to make it easier for Sugar to navigate. She hasn't used it so far, but she's learned she can fly to the top rather than struggle to climb

This is before I added the ladder and a swing, and a few toys So far they love the rope perch!

The cage looks great.

I'm glad you've zip-tied the side spring-loaded doors.
They are not safe and if not always zip-tied they will need to be clamped shut for Sugar and Spice's safety.

Clips for Spring-Load Side Door Security

This post is a bit long, but we have an exciting update today!

Sugar stepped up for the first time!! I was feeding her millet like I do every day, and she let me touch her for the first time ever. She let me pet her stomach and she seemed pretty happy about it, and to my surprise, she hopped right up onto my finger!

I was so excited I started to cry! I honestly never expected her to step up (partially because of her bad balance with one leg, and because she's so timid) so it just took me by surprise. I'm so incredibly proud of her, I feel like a proud mom when her kid gets on the honor roll or something

I took a few pictures but didn't get any video because I was crying, and didn't want that on tape I'm so emotional! My family laughed at me for crying but I don't care! Look at how cute my baby is



Of course, Spice got jealous of all the attention and millet her sister was getting so she hopped up too.


They've both come such a long way in the short amount of time I've had them, and I'm extremely proud of them and I'm so excited to make even more progress

Aww, I'm so happy for you, Morgan.

It shows what patience love and compassion can do for birds and the trust they give to us in return.

Morgan,

That is absolutely wonderful news!
I would have been crying too.

Sugar is just as cute as can be and the fact that she's trusting you this much already says a great deal.
I'm sure with your time, love and compassion, Sugar and Spice will continue to surprise and delight you.

Best wishes!

Morgan, that is such a sweet story. Sugar and Spice really have made great progress!

I would have been in tears as well There's something magical and humbling about a little bird trusting you.

Well I had Sugar and Spice on my hand today, like usual, when Spice surprised me! she flew right out of the cage and onto my shoulder!
I didnt get many photos because I was in my PJs with my hair a mess and no makeup on lol, you can tell I wasnt prepared for a photoshoot!
But I thought I'd share anyways since I'm so excited

What a great surprise!
Definitely exciting and very worthy of celebration.


Spice is obviously becoming more trusting of you.
You're doing a great job with the two of them!!
