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

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).

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.
