Iím BACK! Meet JoJo!

Iím back. After losing Venus over 2 years ago I was heartbroken. Buddy my GCA and Buzz my CAG, have been my focus but Venus was my best, bossy, sweetest and most annoying buddy. It was a hard loss. I thought about getting another female ekkie but I was worried Iíd try to make her Venus. Well last weekend my boss sent me a posting on FB, a friend of hers was looking to rehome a 5 yo female ekkie. Saw pics, healthy, very socialized so I reached out.

First time parrot owners, bought her as an egg, hatch date 9/24/15. They said they donít have to spend with her and weíre looking to rehome her, not even asking for a rehoming fee. I took the plunge, drove 10 hours to Oklahoma, met her and the little stinker grabbed my finger, pulled my hand to me and hopped on. Got on my shoulder, examined me intensely, she stole my heart. They sent her, the cage, food and toys. I felt like they were too happy to see her go lol! Loaded her up, graciously took the seed , pellet, worms and millet and took her to the hotel. Tossed the seed, went and got some fresh squash, raspberries and mixed with her pellets. She didnít eat much as expected. Put her in one of my travel cages, put her in the backseat and we are still driving home.

Here pics. First she is molting but looking at the pattern Iím concerned there may be some plucking. Sheís not bald anywhere, and she is HORMONAL! Sheís trying to mate with me so she has a double wammy. When we get home all three fids are getting their chop. I canít wait to get her home and settled. Her name is JoJo, we arenít changing it, she knows it and itís one of her favorite words. Iím so excited!

Re: Iím BACK! Meet JoJo!

Drive safe! Very exciting, and sounds like Jo Jo was waiting for you.

Be careful with just ditching the seeds straight out, read up on fatty live and quick diet changes. I know you will have her eating great soon.

Looks like plucking and over preening and probably nutritional as well. We've been talking about warmth lately, and I recommend some extra warmth for the first few days. To combat stress and immunity Dios from going to a new snd ( improved! ) home. I've always fine this when I bring home a new bird, o have the sweeter heater and have fir years so that makes it easy for me.

Its wonderful to hear such happy news. Yiu guys sound perfect for each other

Thanks! This is definitely a new situation. We got home, I walked in the house, Buzz, Buddy and the dogs came to great me, very loud. Husband brought JoJo in and it tipped her over the edge, she became very aggressive so I took her to my office, left her there and shut the door to give her some quiet. We got her cage in the house and set up. I went and checked on her, she had calmed down, stepped up for me so I took her to her cage. She was so happy and ran in eagerly. She did bite me, broke the skin. Got her settled in her cage and left her to give her some quiet and space. Day by day we go.
