Hank came home yesterday! I was not easy, I know JB was having a difficult time and it hurt us to be the unlucky people to have to take Hank. I am sure JB was probably hoping for RED FLAGS to disqualify us from adopting the little guy, just so he could have him around longer.
We are learning all about Hank, he is a lover and a clown. He likes to leap from shoulder to shoulder or from table to chairback. He was very quiet yesterday. I did get some sounds and a couple of squawks - but it was a single squawk at a time. He gravitated toward Kevin, and that is understandable. I worked on setting up the cage, and putting in a new thicker boing (to benefit the feet) and a boing perch thing to give him more walking room. The cage is really large so he has an opportunity for a very exciting cage! I am just the Momma to give it to him!
We let him explore the cage setup, and he seemed okay with it, and then he let me reach in and get him a couple of times. He is cage aggressive - but I guess since this is a bit confusing, he didn't think of being cage aggressive YET! I am hoping, that maybe the new house, new cage setup will help us get over some of his cage aggression.
Last night, we finished the evening with some natural vanilla ice cream and an early bedtime. Chula and Hank each had a parent and we shared ice cream. Seems Hank is fond of ice cream, but not a glutton like Chula. He went to bed at 9. I think he was tired because he had no problem locating his hut.
This is just Hank. New posting for Hank and Chula!
Iain - I hope you are reading this, this is mostly for you and JB to keep up with the little dude! Here is a photo of him on top of his cage, set up in a nice corner with a nearby plant and pictures on the wall to look at... I am going to put a UV lamp like Chula has in that receptacle above him, so he gets his good light while we wait to move him into the other room with Chula.
