:budgiedance: Well, i bit the bullet today. Have been thinking to long wheather or not to get Alex a girl friend. We went on a family drive this morning and visited our local pet store. i have been there quite a few times to source info and to get things for my dogs. they have always been more than helpful and they breed their own animals on site as well.

We went to the bird area and a gentleman was great help. He pointed out three prospects for our Alex, two were similar in colouring and one was a terific violet colour that i have only ever seen in pics..

 

needless to say, i chose the violet one...

 

She is of course in quarantine... in my office while Alex is on the other side of the house in the family area....

 

Does anyone have any suggestions of names....??

 

She is about 10 months old according to the gentleman at the store who hand picked her from the breeder...she has been aviary breed and only handled if needs be... do you think that if i start handling her she will be okay to join the family as Alex does.. ??

 

Thanks :sad:

If you want to start handling her it would be best to clip her wings at first so that if she gets away from you she is easy to catch without stressing her out. She most likely will get slightly tamer but I wouldn't expect miracles.

 

How about Peggy...

Wow, thanks for all the suggestions on names....

 

She is a bit Precious at the moment with moving house and getting

away from me when i opened her box to pop her into the new cage.. :rolleyes:

she flew around the dining room all around the bay windows thinking

she could escape, poor thing.... :wacko:

 

So far this afternoon, Alex has been singing and she has been responding

by screaching out to him, needless to say she's literally doing backflips

when he sings and he, well he is starting to flick at his cage door again

to try to get out to see what's new.. -_-

:rolleyes: I find brainstorming names is a great stress reliever, even though I had to go to my massage therapist yesterday. (for my arms, neck and shoulders)
