Rosey the Bourke!

Rosey has been home for a couple weeks now, and she is doing really well. She still gets pretty cranky and likes to boss you around but she does not growl constantly like she did before.
She likes to sit on the side of her cage, and she will jump down to the floor and run around exploring. I sit on the floor with her or the bed and give her millet. Her favorite way to interact with me so far is if I close my eyes and pretend to sleep she will run right up to my face and squeek and squack and peck at me.
She's a hoot. Her and Jasper have seen eachother, but at the moment they just kind of mildly acknowledge eachother.
Every night when I cover her, I stick my head under the blanket and talk her up to her favorite perch. It means a lot to me just to see her get comfortable with a routine.

She climbs the bars, that's why her tail is messed up. Bourks don't usually climb but no one told her that.

I love the messed up tail feathers. I had a cockatiel that LOVED to climb, and her tail was always messy and messed up as a result. She enjoyed it, so who cares what they are built for!

laracroft is on a distinguished road

Sounds like she's making a lot of progress! I don't have any experience with rescues, but I would have thought it would take longer for her to get comfortable. I'm glad she's doing well. She's lovely, even with the messy tail!

Well, I'm proud of her. Don't be fooled she's still quite the little crank pot. She wants to interact, she's just not sure how yet so she mostly bosses me around and pecks at me. Lol

Haha! I keep telling her she's not supposed to I put perches all over her cage so she won't do it but she still does sometimes! At one point she lived with a bunch of budgies so I guess she picked it up from them. Or she's just weird. Probably the latter.

Thanks Malachi!
She has now graduated to using her climbing skills to climb up the couch, or my leg, and then up to my shoulder! She will ride on our shoulder and we can now put her in the cage without having to pick her up. She still enjoys bossing me around. I'm very happy for her.
