Nope. Mollie is being stuborn. I am going to get another cage though and separate the birds - one in one room and one in another. Hopefully, this will help Mollie to understand that she can and MUST rely on me -- not on her brother. Jake continues to be so darn sweet luckily. I do enjoy his company. I am going to continue to work with Mollie and am hoping she'll come around. It breaks my heart that she's so leery. I don't know why she is acting like this - she ws hand raised and I've never yelled at her or hurt her. I am always calm with the birds - I find them calming. Anyway, I am not forcing he issue nor am I allowing her unfriendliness to bother me.
What is funny is that Mollie loves to have me play with her -- I put little balls up on a 'branch' and pushes them off and waits for me to put them back again. Today, she came down when I had my hand in the cage and wanted to investigate my hand (little nips). She won't come onto my finger thoug but at least she was right next to me. Maybe she's deciding to be more trusting already. I can only hope. I talk to the birds throughout the day and when I go to bed I always go and say goodnight to them. I do enjy them very much.
Anyone have experience of having birds with dogs? I would love to be able to bring my Jake out with the dogs being in the house with us. I put the dogs out whenever I am taking my bird out of it's cage.
Hope everyone has a great night. Sure appreciate all the suggestions and advice.
You asked of any experience with dogs. We have 7 cockatiels, 5 cats and 1 dog. We used to have a pitbull too, but she 'disappeared'. My son used to take all of them in his room and the birds were loose. They would land on the floor or on the dogs and cats, but all got along.
I think it depends on the home and people. Our animals are told they must be nice to each other and they are. Have had only one cat that did not and she left on her own.
