Re: Unexpected but ever so welcome!

That bird is in really good feather.

Just out of curiousity how much does this one weigh?!

This one looks more like the "normal" coastal CAGS to me.

His feathers are darker than Tusk's and he looks like he's in the 425-ish range.

Re: Unexpected but ever so welcome!

I agree with the name Zen for a Grey.

I suggestion Karma. Taking him into your home is going to reward you both!

Re: Unexpected but ever so welcome!

He weighs, you're right Birdman, 426ish. He is in great feather and so very handleable. It was strange how he got the the animal shelter. The person who hand raised him works at the shelter and when she looked up the number on his band couldn't believe he was one of hers! He was held at the shelter for the hold period and was not claimed (found abandoned, so sad). He's already allowing me to hold him and feed him. He is a bit put off with me for having him bathed and nails trimmed. I did lightly clip the wings this time but will let them grow out in the next molt.

We have decided on the name "Iago" like the parrot from Aladdin the Disney movie!

Yes he is a normal CAG according to the info we have gathered from the lady who bred him.

Soooo thankful! Can't wait to see him open and develop in relationship with us.
