I have always wished to have a bird; just like yours but my DH too is having an issue with it. I wish to have a talking bird which learns to talk. I have seen amazing videos on YouTube in which these birds are very talkative.
Basil is now a fully fledged family member ,, He loves Oscar and quite often throws Oscar a nut sometimes when he flies he will land on Oscar who really doesnt seem to mind at all..
He is good with me and loves OH the nasty bad tempered, snapping, bitey bird we took in last june is all but unrecognisable.
His feathers have come back and he is so much stronger, his acrobatics keep us amused as well as his whistling and talking . We know he can talk but he still only really dares to talk if we are out of the room or at the very least out of his eyeline..
I think its only a matter of time before he trusts us enough to talk to us though.. Im really proud of the progress he has made.. He is a lovely bird and didnt deserve to be treated the way he was..
Here are some of the latest photos getting his Christmas gift and having love time with OH…
