Free Boid




Baby Boid Is Free!

10am - In order for Boid to develop into the pet that we wish, he must be allowed to leave his cage. Since the 2-day camping trip, Boid has become increasingly more friendly. And almost not fearful at all anymore.

Beginning yesterday evening, Boid was introduced to an "open-door" environment. It took a couple of hours for Boid to test what having his cage door open would mean for him.

Walking over to that open cage door, Boid put his head outside. And looked around. Then he returned inside his cage. I was not looking at Boid when he went on his first exploration flight in Twayler's kitchen/living room.

It appears that Boid is a very quick learner.


10:30am - Food, the great motivator
Boid will teach himself his first less about outside cage life. When Boid get hungry, he will figure out how to get to the seeds [and water] available inside his cage.

Seeds in the palm of my hand, should get Boid on his own, to eat while standing on my open palm. Yes, food is a great motivator!

Free at last!


Does Boid have a sense of humor?
We who live close to Boid answer, "Yes!" We see humor in our Baby Boid.

    1. Hi Croft,

      That can be done. Dogs learn that.

  3. I'm glad you're letting Boid out of the cage. I always feel sorry for animals who spend their life in a zoo environment.
    Do you suppose the animals would prefer the risks associated with freedom or the safety afforded by being a captive?
    You have chosen the risks associated with traveling vs the safety of a cage(apartment)
    Wonder what Boid would choose?

    1. Hi Ed, Carol and Gopher,

      My reply to your question would be a guess.

      I am guessing that Boid would choose a combination of the easy life of being cared for AND be able to be a free bird among other free birds.

      This morning Boid chose to exit his cage thru the newly opened door. That decision kind of lets us know about how Boid feels about freedom.

      Soon, Boid will make choices on his own about where to be. Inside his cage, or outside.

      As a human animal, I choose both also. I live inside my home most of the time. For comfort and safety. And, I would not ever choose to give home up.

  4. You're providing Boid with the best of both worlds. There's plenty of room for his "freedom" as he learns to fly freely in Twayler. He would not survive in the outside on his own. You're wisely taking such good care of him!

    1. Hi JJ,

      Thank you for your thoughts about Boid.

      Today is the 2nd day for Boid to leave his cage. He has to learn to enter his cage/home on his own. Today is a good day to do that.

  5. Wow. A lot has happened since my last visit here. RV'ing again with lots of blog posts. It's obvious you are more happy than being in an apartment. Good for you! I will be checking back in more.

    1. Hi Marty,

      I agree with you!

      Having a home base in Twayler, and going camping with Scampy seems just wonderful for me!
