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
