PetiteJadie is on a distinguished road

I have been thinking and could use everyone's advise - so here is a picture of Luella, my Linnie. She is hand shy and doesn't like being touched. I bought her from a breeder, but she might as well be a rescue and so I give her the space she asks for. Even if I hang a toy too close to a perch, she gets mad. Haha! She's cute tho.

I adopted her because I thought Jadie needed a friend. But they never really bonded. I like to think they enjoyed having someone around to fly with, snack on millet and shred paper. Whenever I returned with Jadie from the vet, Luella would sing her mimicked Jadie chirps!

Because she is timid and shy, Luella has always been in Jadie's shadow. With Jadie gone, I'm having to shift my approach with her - Luella's never been without another bird and hasn't really bonded with me. And I've never been with just Luella. I'm curious to see how she'll blossom and am working more agressively (gently) on establishing a bond and trust.

Does anyone have any advice or ideas in interacting together? Right now I can feed her corn from my finger, but I'm looking for ideas to interact and draw her out of her shell bit by bit. Especially since she's now the fid of the house.

Love those pics. She is a real porker! Nice and fat!.

She will be forced to pay more attention to you, so take advantage of this situation. Give her treats by hand. Sing to her. Linnies do tend to copy a little bit. You'd be surprised. I hope she comes around to you. You must make a big effort .

I'm very sorry for your loss. There truly are no real words of comfort at such times, though indeed the pain of loss is our expression of love when our beloved friends depart, and this sorrow is inseparable from all of the joys we have shared with our beloved friends. I imagine though there is some comfort having another feathered friend with you. I'd suggest progressively just giving your parakeet opportunities to be with you, gently expanding her world; given her becoming your sole focus you might be surprised how she blossoms, though her way will definitely be different than that of a parrotlet - their very different 'people.' I wish you well!
