Smile Meet Rue :)

We have a new addition to our flock! Say hello to Rue (pronounced Roo), a (roughly) 6 year old female pearl cockatiel.




I was originally planning on getting another cockatiel when I turned 30 in March of 2019, but last week, husband's coworker saw from his social media that we have cockatiels and asked if we would be interested in adopting his bird, who is rarely let out of her cage and hasn't been played with for some time. She used to have another cockatiel buddy but it passed away 2-3 years ago so she has been alone ever since.

After seeing a picture of her, we decided to adopt her!! They weren't sure about her gender but I am now positive she is female based on her age and markings. I have wanted a female for a long time -- my 7 year old male cockatiel lost his mate earlier this year so they are sort of in the same situation, both have lost a companion.

So yesterday we traveled to coworker's house and she was in a sad, small cage that looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months(maybe years?), her diet was cheap Walmart bird seed, and it looked like she hasn't had a bath in ages. So the name I picked for her sort of fits -- Rue is a character from the Hunger Games (book/film) who lived in really bad conditions in her district until she was picked to be a tribute for the games.

So far Ember doesn't seem that interested but Boo is very receptive to her. He is spending all of his time at the far right corner of his cage where her cage is next to his side. In time, I hope they become a pair and can make each other happy.

Re: Meet Rue :)

Welcome Beautiful Rue!
It sounds like this was meant to be, I am so happy she has joined your flock.
Fingers crossed that she and Boo become a couple

Re: Meet Rue :)

Rue is beautiful! And underlines the common neglect that happens to do many birds....I'm so thankful the person realized they weren't doing the best and rehomed her to you,!! I wish more people who were keeping butds in this sort of forgotten state would give them up to better homes. I can't wait to her more about her as she blossoms!

Another little Xmas-miracle: lonely bird(s) no longer alone and life looks up again.

Re: Meet Rue :)

Thanks everyone!! Her first night went very well and she is being more vocal and chirping when she hears my other two chirping. She has the cutest chirping voice, so sweet and precious. So far, so good!

Boo is beginning to revert back to his old 'I have a mate and don't need people anymore' ways as he used to be with Peach, he was just finally starting to come around and let me pet him but now he is pretty protective of her already, he has moods where he is lunging at me and picking fights with Ember through the cage bars and screaming at everyone, so.... I'm a bit sad to see Boo like this but in time I hope he calms down. I want to work on gaining her trust before I put the two of them together.

Re: Meet Rue :)

My Ta-dah and Neptune went through a love protect mode but thankfully they back to love me plus love each other so hope that's what happens for you. She is just such a beautiful girl! So glad you have her now
