Birds are very routine-oriented birds.  It’s very important to maintain a consistent routine for them.  Not only does it make the birds happy, it will make the bird owner happy too because the birds will be less fussy.

In the morning I get up and take a shower.  After the shower I take Conner and Trevor out of their cages and everyone eats breakfast.  Audrey’s millet is always more appealing to Trevor than anything on top of the cage.

I leave them out of their cages until it’s time for work.  Conner goes in the cage first.  Then Trevor goes into his cage.

I used to have trouble getting Trevor in the cage because I would try and pick him up first and he would run around like I was trying to kill him.  But if Conner is in the cage first, Trevor doesn’t mind going inside next.  The routine has helped us sleep later on the weekends because the birds wait for the routine to start before asking to be let out of the cages.  Now everyone is much happier.

    I agree with routine – glad you have one that works for you and your adorable guys. I find it interesting how much it matters to Trevor that Conner is in the cage first.

    Trevor is such a follower.
