Ok, follow up to my intro post. Jewel is still a bit of a handful. Especially around bedtime. That's when she gets cranky, but because of work that's the only time I have on some days. Meaning she is alone for 8-9 hours (sometimes 12! 😭) She gets right around 12 hours of sleep though and I'm home at least 3 days a week (I'm self employed part time). So she comes out quite a bit on my off days.

Anyway, on her daytime outings she's become super managable and playful and affectionate. Here is a few stills from a video of her after she climbed into my hand and started asking for scritches.

She does this thing I've never seen my birds do before, she loves cranking her head around and upside down to get me to tickle under her beak and around her cheeks and jaws. She'll make the sweetest little donald duck noise which I'm not sure is pure contentment or annoyance cuz I'm doing it wrong. If it's annoyance she doesnt act like it. Anyone have any clue as to which is a bad croak and which is a good one?

Jewel is a beauty! Just give her time - she will eventually get used to your schedule. Just a suggestion. On the long days you are at work, maybe you can give her a foraging toy (for small birds) to keep her busy!
I like this idea any suggestions? We have quite a few toys in her cage atm but she only really plays with one (this kind of cork thing for chewing that hangs down.
