Baby Budgie Update
They say that you should spend about 4hrs with your budgie a day if it doesn't have another budgie friend. That's why people end up getting more than one because that seems like a lot of time. With other larger parrots it's even more. Danny gets 21hrs a day haha She hasn't been apart from me longer than the length of a movie and when I go to the gym. Other than that I'm in the room.
She isn't very vocal and I think I only heard her say "Hey Baby" once. I've only said it about 2400 times. If someone didn't know I had a bird I was trying to teach to talk in the room with me they would think I was making weird baby sounds and sound effects to myself.
She picks up new 'tricks' pretty well and can wave her hand, stick out her tongue/ yawn, open her wings a little, and we're working on a couple different head movements. Dropping her head like she is falling asleep. The sprinkler (Moving head like a sprinkler dance) and i'll look at her and she'll look away really fast and then look back at me and i'll look away. I've noticed is that i'll try to teach her something and she won't do it right away but then a couple hours later or the next day i'll look over and she'll be doing it.
She is also obsessed with mirrors. The other night she fell asleep with her head jammed up against a crystal cube I have.
