You guys are going to get a ton of questions from me :D Anakin's newest thing is to run back and forth on his perch while simultaneously chirping away. I assume it means he wants my attention, but whenever I go to take him out he does whatever he can to avoid my hand, or he'll step up then jump back off.

These birds are so goofy, I love them :D

Sometimes I do, but this happens when I don't. It may be that he wants me..but I try to have him step up and he runs away from me.

Zoe does this CONSTANTLY when she wants to come out of her cage. She will just pace and chirp for as long as she can before she gets tired and has a nap and then gets back into it lol. Sometimes it's just not appropriate or safe for her to be out so she just has to suck it up lmao.

My guys do this when it's first thing in the morning and they want out of cage time to fly around and be boisterous, haha. Then they usually go back into their cage by themselves and have a feed and some chill out time, and then in the evenings they are active again!

Also, how long have you had Anakin for? It can take a few weeks for them to settle into their new home.

One week today..he still shies away from my hand whenever I approach him but he's getting more vocal. From everything I've read his shying away is normal since I haven't had him for a long time. Hopefully that's the case, I wanna cuddle with my birdy :D

This is accurate. My two tiels run back and forth and chirp until we open the cage. Of course it's been a lot more urgent since this whole Twitterpated season!

Hi, looks like this is a very old thread and not sure if it is still active. I am having the same situation now with my male tiel Leo. But there is one more thing, he is sleeping more than usual till evening. He doesn't eat anything since morning and sleeps with his head turned to his back. In the evening he suddenly becomes very active and runs back and forth with squeeking. His water intake has decreased but he eats well in the evening. It's been 10 days I got the pair. Insights please!

Hey all, our new girl Coco seems to do the same in the mornings, even after we have her out for a while. I think she is just full of energy from a good sleep!!
