Trying new things!
Hey! Does anyone else find that their parrotlet are very conservative when it comes to trying new things? Chocobo clearly takes a long time to get used to new stuff, be it foods, toys, or people! But then once she is used to it, she knows what she likes!
I got her a new carry case the other day. Up to now I've just been moving her cage around if I need to take her anywhere, which is far from ideal and I'm always a bit paranoid the bottom will fall out. Obviously, she hates it. I've been leaving it open beside the cage with a seed bowl in there so she can get used to it, and getting her to step up and sit on top of it while feeding her treats, which she still isn't mad keen on. But if I try to put her on the perch inside, she'll just edge away up my arm and then fly off. I'm probably moving house next month, so it would be really nice to be able to use the case by then. Any tips? With her playgym it took months for her to accept it as a nice place to be, even though I covered it in millet!
