I was recently given A Quaker parrot from A friend of my husbands, who`s father bought in Miami and could not keep it and care for it.
I know nothing about the bird, age , gender, or even name. So it has been two weeks, I have got him toys and bigger food and water dishes, and named it Kiwi, witch I think will work for male or female.
My bird is very afraid of everything, I sit quite awhile with it and talk to it as nicely as I can every day . It will not take treats or fruit or veggies or anything from me or my husband. So what should I do? Should I just take it out of it`s cage without giving treats, or wait till it is more friendly? It gets scared when I clean it`s cage and freshen food and water and I really hate getting it scared , but I have to clean it everyday, and I do it at the same time to get it used to A schedule, I really don`t know what to do. I want whatever is best for my little Kiwi, so what am I to do?
thanks in advance for all advise
