New Baby Bird is home

Today my little baby bird (no name yet ) came home with me. The breeder had 3 babies left, holding 3 babies sure was special! So cute, all of them! Well, one wasn't interested to be on my hand, a pretty grey girl with red eyes was into nibbling my finger, and a grey boy was very comfy sitting on my finger, stepping up without hesitation and pooping on me. This one I took home. He slept a little, preened, grinded his beak, investigated a toy, and chirped. I am just watching now if he eats and drinks. I am so smitten with this tiny dude. The cage is 25 x 21 inches and needs stainless 5oz bowls, more perches, toys .... just ordered... I look forward to having this little one on my life ❤️

Congratulations! Your baby is beautiful! Smitten, are you? That does not surprise me one bit! It is amazing how quickly they steal our hearts!

That is good sign that he is eating and drinking. Let us know how he is doing. Have you picked a name for him yet?

Thanks for your kind words. I have zero idea for a name yet. Yesterday evening he was in front of the cage door and started chirping. I opened the door, he stepped up and walked all the way to my shoulder. There he preened and cuddled against the side of my neck. He fall asleep! I think he planned staying there for the night. I am lucky he was raised by such a wonderful breeder. I will see what day #2 brings.

Yay! It sounds like you have an adventurous cuddle-monster! Tumi was part of that rarer subset when I brought him home. They still have their challenging moments, for sure, but the initial period of gaining trust can be much easier. My biggest challenge with Tumi was that I couldn't get him to go to bed if he couldn't see me, and he wanted to spend the night on me every night. Scarfs were my biggest friend, as you can simply remove the scarf when you want to remove the bird without having to have him voluntarily step up.

So far I have Beany Boy as a favorite. It sounds soft, it is short and not too complicated.
Other ideas were Pilo, Benji, Toby, or Tinker.
