New Addition :)

Recommended Posts

Okay, I'm probably going to get in trouble off you guys for this :D

 

I had an impulse purchase today. Meet my new addition

I know I should've put it in quarantine, I did a big no no. But I was only allowed to put it in my room (i live with my parents) and I didn't see the point of putting it in a quarantine cage in the same room.

 

What I was fretting most was whether or not Bula would get along with it. But they had an instant connection and Bula even started playing daddy bird (regurgitating food for it), and singing which I thought was absolutely adorable B)

 

To me it looks like a girl. The cere is blue with a bit of white, and there is still some black on the beak :)

 

Heres a closer picture but with a flash. The picture above is its true colours.

All I need to do now is think of a name ^_^

You don't just quarantine for the sake of your new bird, but also existing birds.

 

They are exposed to each other, so now all you can do is hope and pray.

 

Good luck.

lol I get the same from my mum XD

 

The top picture is its real colours, but they could very well change after she moults

 

I just love how Bula took to her so quickly. They are sharing a food dish and grooming each other, and Bula is still feeding her :)

 

And I know Dave, I've been bad. Hopefully my good luck with birds in the past lives on B)

 

And she has a name too. She has been dubbed Vinaka ^_^

Yes.

 

'Vinaka' is Fijian for 'Thank You'. As my other budgie is 'Bula' which is fijian for 'hello/welcome/good morning etc'...i was just going with the theme

Quarantine will be a must do thing with you one day ( and should be now ) when you lose birds to illness and realise its importance as we all have and hence why we advise quarantine :(

Oh I am going to say it... even if it is the same room, a seperate cage is still better than straight in together. In a seperate cage at least they don't share food and water, don't directly touch and have contact with each others droppings. It isnt perfect but still better. A great many things are spread by drinking water, droppings and feeding each other.

 

I have limited space at my place but I still use a seperate cage.

 

Sorry to do the tell you off thing but its for a good reason, your not a bad person. I just hope they are both healthy.

 

Ah he is cute though :wub:
