I am so excited 'cause I purchased a BFA baby a couple of weeks ago. I get to go see it when I can and will be able to pick it up at the end of next month. When weaned that is . It was born on 06/01/07. I purchased a nice large cage for it, but I have a question. Should I let the bird be in the cage for a little while before I bring it home ,so that it can get used to it while it is still at the shop? If so how long before I bring them home should I leave the bird in the new cage? It is so hard to wait I just want to go and get it now. This is my first larger bird, I hope to also one day get an African Grey. We will wait for now. One will be enough to get used to and have fun with for a while. It will get plenty of attention and care and with a little patiance and a lot of love mabe it won't have to bad of a time with mood swings and the breeding seasons. Any information will be greatly appriciated.  Thanks for reading.

Hi,

"It will get plenty of attention and care and with a little patiance and a lot of love mabe it won't have to bad of a time with mood swings and the breeding seasons."

Lot's of love and great care, attention, toys, etc.... are all wonderful things that you are wanting to do for your new baby when it comes home, your Zon will love you for it!

But don't get disappointed when your birds breeding season comes and the hormones kick in.  It's instinct and some go through it worse than others, no matter how much you love, care, give attention etc... to your baby.   The best advice I can give to you is when the time comes, let your bird get it out of his system, be patient it will pass.  Have lot's of toys that are destructable.  Grey Feather Toys have great destructable toys.  Chewing is a daily urge and gets stronger when they are in breeding season. 

I don't think you need to take the cage to the store.  Have everything set up and ready for your new babies homecoming.

Good luck with your new birdie! Keep us posted

Thanks. I have been told by many about the breeding season. Yes I will understand when it hits and do my best to be patient and work with my bird so we can both get through it. Yes, a toy box and exchanging lots of toys is my goal. Manzinita branches to chew, and lots of tear it up toys. I am going to start now with the toys so I can get a little bit of a head start. I know toys are a big part of having a happy bird . The cage I purchased is at the shop already. She ordered it for me and said I could leave it there if I wanted to. Do you think I should go ahead and bring the cage home still ?

Hi,

I would bring the cage home.  Parrots adjust rather well.  I wouldnt worry about it.  Bring it home and load er' up with toys!

I will do just that, thanks. I found out that my baby is a boy. At least now I know. I am so excited, can't wait to bring him home at the end of next month. It is so far away, OK it seems far away.

My daughter and I picked out "Tiki" . He is so cool, he is a cuddle bug. He seems really relaxed when he is around me. He was preening himself, and stretching, and standing on one leg while chewing and playing with his toys. He doesn't care how much I kiss him and cuddle. The other Amazon that is a month older than my guy is so active and vocal. He really doesn't cuddle much with his person, but she is ok with that.
