Smile Its Official!

Hi Everyone, Today the DNA results came back and I selected my new baby. HE is a yellow-sided green cheek conure. His hatch date was 9/23/10 and I guess he will be coming home to me in December. He is special because it is the first time the breeding pair had all 5 eggs hatch. He is lucky #5! His breeder is amazing and stays in almost constant contact with me. She updates me with photos and is always available to answer my questions. The process so far has been so enjoyable and I am looking forward to the transition into my home and household. So far, so good... Yay! Thanks for all the great information... Will.

Re: Its Official!

This is awesome!!!!! You have gone about getting a parrot the right way!!!! Im so glad that the breeder is helpful and judging by her friendly nature really cares about the parrots she breeds. Cant wait to see your pics when he arrives. Have you thought of any names yet?

Re: Its Official!

This is my first time using a breeder for any pet, and I couldn't be happier. She only raises one clutch at a time and I think he will be so tame and happy after all her attention. It is amazing to watch him change and grow and the colors are turning out so amazing!

I think he will be called "Memo" short for Guillermo. I am naming him after me! LOL.

I cannot wait to share the photos of this cute, tiny guy...

Will.

Re: Its Official!

Hey Will,

Its going to great watching him grow and see pics on the forum. You must be so so excited and I just love shopping my lil gal. I spend more on her than myself - lol!!!!

Have you bought any stuff yet? Im not sure what your experience is but when buying anything from a petshop make sure you disinfect it or wipe down the bag of food etc. Disease can be carried in the dust of birds' feathers and sometimes they get stacked near the birds and you can carry home something from the stuff you buy without even knowing it.

Do you have any pics of "Memo" from the breeder? If you please please put them on the forum Would love to see him

Re: Its Official!

I have been shopping non-stop, and think I have just about everything I will need. I do most of the shopping on-line and really avoid pet shops. I have to put myself on a buying freeze for now, as I want to get him home before I go too far overboard... But, you are right, it is a lot of fun!

Re: Its Official!

Hey All, Not sure if this is going to work, but I wanted to share some pics (taken yesterday) of my new baby... I think he will be called "Memo". If I did this wrong, have a look at my album. Take care! Will.
