I have a problem though. Getting up on my shoulder is a privilege, not a right. The second I take him out he goes straight to my shoulder. I'm supposed to take him down when he nips, but he nips faster than I can get him down, and i'm worried that if i squish his too hard when bringing his down or if he falls on the floor something will go wrong. He's also bitey. Even though I don't back off when he nips, he still nips, and enough to draw some blood.
Other than that, he's the cutest little thing. I'm trying to get him to explore other parts of the cage. He seems to like to play with metal things like my glasses, the cage bars, and some of his bells.
hahaha Blaine! The shoulder is where all birds like to be, they like to be able to see you and talk to you on a level. There is nothing wrong with a tiel on the shoulder as they can't dominate you - it's the larger parrots that shouldn't get used to sitting there. Is he clipped? If not, he should be at least until he is used to you, your room and your house - it will also make him more dependent on you. If the biting bothers then a firm no, removing him and replacing him back in the cage for a time out of 10-15 minutes and he'll learn in time that biting gets him put back into his cage.
Yes, it can be overstimulated stress. I wouldn't introduce him to the rest of the family all at once as he's likely to get over excited which will also make his poops more runny. Keep an eye on it though, if after a couple days and if it's still runny you might want to think of taking him for a checkup.
Ok. My sis snapped some pictures of Razz on my shoulder. The only thing is, she's the only one who knows how to get them on the computer. I have to wait until one to two in the afternoon to get her to upload them to the computer.
