Poor Dooby, hopefully he would have finished sulking tomorrow, fingers crossed.

Thanks everybody, he's gone to bed early tonight, he chatted and whistled himself to sleep as usual, so hopefully he'll be ok tomorrow.

Now you have all been through the first clipping with me and Dooby, thanks for your comments and concerns, this place really rocks when it comes to sharing and caring.

Hehe, better for him to take his anger out on a peanut than a finger. :p I hope you wake up and find your sweet little Dooby sitting in his cage ready for a cuddle.

I think we have a bit of a breakthrough.....slowly, slowly he's coming round. I've only been bitten once that's drawn blood..that's good!! I think he's beginning to realise that he can't fly too well and he just might need my help, so he'd better be nice. He flew out of the computer room and landed in the hallway, it just looked so funny to see him toddling back instead of flying. lol. He's been for loads of tickles, so that's another positive. I think by tomorrow, he'll be a good little Dooby again. *Bleeding fingers crossed*

Sounds like he is slowly getting better :) I always make sure when I let Spike out I take him out and not let him come out on his own. I heard it makes them feel like they need you more.

Birds look hilarious when they waddle around. :p I'm glad to hear he's behaving a bit better. I hope he just keeps getting better and better for you!

Ok, I'm not counting my tiels before they hatch, but I think we have a breakthrough. Today it was like having my old Dooby back. He's been loving and been around the house with me as I've been working.......but, he's very quiet and also, when we get near his cage, he flies off and goes in! I've left the doors open, but he doesn't come out unless I actually get him to step up and then he'll come out for a little while. Now, the way he is behaving is just too good to be true, but on the other hand, I don't want to suppress him too much. Anyway, I think maybe it's all still a little strange to him, so tomorrow is another day. Just one thing though, he was on the kitchen table and he managed to fly up to the top of the cupboard door...sheesh, there is no stopping this Doobster!!!

I think being quiet is pretty normal Ollie was the same way after his clip, he was really quiet and I kept saying I think he is mad at us...lol but he is back to his loud self again :p Its not a bad thing that he is not coming out unless you put your hand in to get him to step up maybe he is realizing that he is not the boss around there and he can't bully anyone around anymore :D once he gets his bearings and knows what he can do to get around he will be fine.
