Slowly, slowly gaining more of Jester… Nyx… bird’s trust. He won’t step up, or sit with me. But he’s gradually getting a bit closer every day.
Today was the first day he came and sat on this table. So, we’re getting there.
Sunflower seeds are only used as treats and rewards and to get him interested in me. The rest of his diet is ZuPreem pellets, and an assortment of veggies. Tomorrow I’ll be making and freezing up some chop - so for those worried, he’s not living on an all seed diet. Once he’s a bit more familiar with me and I can handle him, then he’ll only have sunflower seeds for treats and special occasions.
The cage in the background is his cage FOR NOW. I am going to buy a much better and much larger one in the next couple of weeks. Ideally one that has horizontal bars and a top that opens out.
Right now, I’m trying really hard not to start calling him Nyx. (Guess who saw Kingsglaive recently).
