Uh oh...

Buffy cute!

Daughter and I went to a bird show yesterday.  No intention of buying a bird of course!  We had a lovely look around at all the pretties, and I got to meet a few folk off Smiley's bird forum.  :~D

But this little darling was irresistible!  Full of personality and the prettiest blue I've seen in a Quaker parrot.  Handraised, so she's very friendly, and she has been DNA sexed, so we know for sure she's a girl.  And we got her for half the price we'd usually pay for a hand-reared Quaker.  So what if we have to live on soup for the week?!  Heh.

Now we just need to give her a NAME.  ;~P

She has the most gorgeous, growly sort of voice, and does this little chirrup that sounds for all the world like "Uh oh!"  XD

She's beautiful!

We think so! :~)

Awww, what a pretty girl!
27th-Apr-2009 07:55 am (UTC)
She's pretty damn cute. Sounds like a little dinosaur! XD

And she matches your journal so beautifully! Lovely lady!
27th-Apr-2009 07:54 am (UTC)
OMG! You're right!! LOL!
27th-Apr-2009 06:19 am (UTC)
you could always name her "Uh oh!" :D
27th-Apr-2009 07:52 am (UTC)
Heh! Don't think we haven't considered it! XD

What a gorgeous little girl! Can't wait to see what you name her. That plumage is just unbelievable with the soft blues and greens she looks like a painting with beautifully blended colors. Congrats on the new pet!

Thanks! At the moment daughter is favouring 'Evie,' so hopefully we'll know soon!
27th-Apr-2009 08:11 am (UTC)
Oh, how pretty she is!
27th-Apr-2009 08:15 am (UTC)
aww, pretty birdie! *gives her a little head rub*

she matches your layout!
27th-Apr-2009 02:23 pm (UTC)
She LOVES head rubs! XD

She does, doesn't she?! Perfect colour!

Uhm... "Snow White"?
27th-Apr-2009 02:23 pm (UTC)
Or Snow Blue. :)

Aw what a cutie!
If I may make a quick suggestion-- a vet trip is probably in your best interest, and a full blood panel and fecal swab! Bird shows are wonderful, but also VERY good at passing disease around to the birds! (eep).
27th-Apr-2009 02:12 pm (UTC)
I totally agree! She's quarantined from the other birds (I'm being really strict about it this time!), and will definitely be seeing our avian vet asap.

She's beautiful!
27th-Apr-2009 02:21 pm (UTC)
Thankyou! :~)

You are a bird junkie. I like that.
27th-Apr-2009 02:21 pm (UTC)
Heh. Yes, they are my drug of choice, and my daughter is a terrible enabler! They ALWAYS make me smile and feel happy. And I know it will be utterly tragic when they die (many yrs from now!), but you can't have the joy without the sadness. I can still get teary thinking about my wee budgie, Merlin, and he's been dead for 22yrs! This little lady should be with us for at least 30yrs!

She's beautiful. I keep thinking I'd love to give keeping a bird a try, but since I live alone and I'm out at least 8-9 hours a day, it wouldn't work. ::sigh::

How about "Billy" as in Billy Holiday as in Lady Sings the Blues?

Oh, and I know somebody down the hallway from where I live has a bird because I can hear it once in a while.

She's so beautiful! What an amazing, tealish blue...
28th-Apr-2009 01:08 am (UTC)
She is, isn't she? :~D
27th-Apr-2009 07:07 pm (UTC)
Oh, she's beautiful! I've never seen a bird with that coloring before.

We've seen blue Quaker parrots before, but they tend to be a duller almost denim blue. We've not seen one this colour before. She may well darken with age; who knows? ;~)
