The first week

Pixel joined our family one week ago today! The children love having her around and she spends several hours outside her cage every day, either interacting with us or sitting up on her picture frame perches. Aaron sometimes reads stories aloud to her.

The taming and training process has got off to a really good start. I think it’s partly because she is very young and partly because she had been handled occasionally by the breeder. She was standing on our hands and free flying from day 1, stepping up and down on command by day 2, landing all over us by day 3 and target trained by day 7. Today we began teaching her to go through a cardboard tube, starting off with a thin ring of cardboard.

Hi, I'm Sarah. I home educate my two children, Aaron and Tabitha. I am looking forward to learning more about budgies.
