now 14 weeks old!He has become quite
the acrobat, swinging from toys in his cage, and hanging upside down on one
foot from his perches.He has developed
many different sounds, squeaks and screeches, along with giving kisses,
complete with the kissing sound!
seemed like a very long road, but after much fretting, Wasabi is fully
weaned.Turns out, he's a bit of a picky
boy, oh, and rather spoiled, as well.Aftertrying many different types
of pellets, seeds, fruits veggies and other foods (thanks Parrots 'N Stuff!),
we found that he is a big fan of a canary mix, full of good stuff like golden
flax seed and buck wheat.After trying
this new mix for only a few days, Wasabi is completely weaned, making for a
very happy lovebird, and an even happier hospital!Now on to the next challenge, transferring
him to a pelleted diet.I will have to
admit, I have never met a bird that loves vinegar, until Wasabi.He will chase you across the house if he
knows you have it, silly bird.
loves his baths, whether in a bath pan, or in his water dish.He can often be found soaking the counter and
its contents, or shortly after when he vaguely resembles a drowned rat.
Wasabi has turned in to a wonderful companion, and hospital resident.He is happy to say hello to everyone, and get
a little cheek-rub time in.
