     Ive taught my too so play peek a boo, lol hes so funny, but the other day he came out of his cage and started to go up top, i clasped my hands round his face and shut his eyes, bless him when i let go of him he shouted boo, i jumped back with a start, it was so loud , since then when we cover our faces up with our hands he waits and then yells out boo, love him, thats another thing hes learnt now.  i thought i would share this little story with you, its took months for him to learn but hes grasped it now. i think its one for u -tube, i wish you could all see it.

    Don't you just love that feeling of pride when your bird learns something new! To me its nearly as good as When my daughter learned to do something new. You cant wait to do a show and tell with everyone you know. After all they are our babies and they have us wrapped around there little claws: -)
