Well...there is a little story behind BOTH these new birds. We had never had dealings with this breeder before and thought we were only meeting her (87 miles away) to pick up Yo yo. All along I really wanted a pied male and she knew this. At the last minute she showed up with Yo yo AND Woody! Knowing my weakness for Pieds, I bought them both! Although she claims....on her website to hand tame and raise her birds, nether one was near Far enough along in training as to what we are use too! Now in all fairness to this breeder, she had just purchased Woody from yet ANOTHER breeder for herself but when her hen died, she decided to sell him. As to your question , yes, he seems to be eatting and drinking fine but for a male, he makes very little noise! I guess time will tell on that. Hopefully Ozzie (or whiteface pied) will teach him some stuff.
