I'm not sure if you guys want the full update or not. . . . Here's what I posted on my bird board about them.
I thought I would start a little diary of sorts to keep you guys updated on my journey with Sydney and Sky. They have officially been with me for going on three days and I can already tell you they are going to be a lot of fun but also quite a handful!
Sydney, the female, really likes Matt. She likes me ok but she has decided that I am the evil one that puts her back in her cage so whenever Matt is around, she would much rather be with him which is actually awesome as far as I am concerned. Boomer really likes Matt and I know Matt considers him "his" bird but he is still going to take a lot of work as far as getting him to really appreciate human companionship goes. Sydney loves to be on Matt's shoulder playing peek a bo and getting loved on and that means Matt is falling for her already.
She could take me or leave me when she is out. She normally sticks pretty close to Sky but they don't have a problem being away from eachother really either. She is a total clown and loves playing peek a bo, dancing and tossing me toys to pick up. The only time I have any trouble handling her right now is when I want her to step up so I can put her away. I swear she knows she's headed for the cage and in true cockatoo fashion, she puts up quite a fight!
Sky is the surprising one. I was really worried about him, I really thought he was going to hate me for taking him away from his last owner. He was after all the one that bit me both times I met him over there. He was the one that did not want to come to me. He is a totally different bird then what I expected and he really does like me.
In a lot of ways, he has helped me to answer some questions I had about the bond I share with Peppers. . . . Pepps and I communicate outstandly well and share a bond that is stronger then I ever thought possible. I really didn't think it was possible to add another bird to my flock that I shared even a little bit of that connection with, especially a rehome that I had only met a few times. I was wrong however and I can already tell you for sure that there is something special about the bond that is developing between me and Sky. . . I already trust him enough to let him gently bite my fingers, I was doing it last night and Matt asked me if I was crazy. I tried to explain that I'm not insane, we just have an understanding and I trust him. I think that Matt is a little leary of Sky because he did bite him once already pretty good and now Matt is scared so Sky has the upper hand.
All things considered, everything is going great at my house! I have about a million more things I could tell you about them but I really should get back to work now.
