I've Gone Mad.... 2 More Birds

Recommended Posts

I was out tonight and the urge hit me again. So I came home with two lovely girls. I'm running out of Looney Tunes character names so I've decided on Daffodil and Puddin'. I've been to this pet store on many occasions and I've always hesitated about getting birds from them because they were older and most of their flock were normals. But today I was feeling sorry for them.

 

They are both opalines. And one has clear flight feathers. Puddin' actually has amazing colour along her back. She has some violet, some blue, and some sky blue. It is really quite neat (you can't see it in these pics).

 

I bought another cage and these girls are going in quarantine upstairs. Yes for the entire 30 days and maybe even longer. They do not have clipped wings, and are very "wild". I'm not sure if I'll bother to tame them. We'll see how things go.

 

I'm guessing they are 6-9 months old. You can see the iris ring on Daffodil.

 

So here they are:

So can someone let me know if I have "typed" them wrong.

 

Thanks so much!

Daffodil is starting to get one.. it is light brown right now and not very wide. Puddin's eyes are all black.
