Re: Everyone else tired of my excitement!

Thanks so much for the warm welcome and handy tips everyone!!
He is officially home!!!!
He vomited twice on the way home along the range, lots of turns and twists but otherwise he did really well.
He is just perfect, been home for an hour and he has already had a nap and is busying himself with preening!
The breeder said they tend to make a fair bit of noise until 8 months of age???
So far he has been quite the chatterbox, whenever you interact he replies in his own way, super cute!

Pictures to come!!!

Re: Everyone else tired of my excitement!

Awwwww, sorry about the vomiting, likely a little motion-sickness and/or anxiety, I've had it happen to one of mine.

Welcome welcome welcome little one, looking forward to pics!!! Any idea of a name yet?

Re: Everyone else tired of my excitement!

Sad about the car sickness also...ginger didn't work???? I'm for Theodore btw...are we voting on this LOL? So good to have him home eh? You are in Cairns so is he our Australian Eclectus? or other sub-species???? Aussie Eclectus boys are pretty big fellas...so you will need larger perches???

Re: Everyone else tired of my excitement!

Theodore was the winner! Teddy for short because he is super snuggly!! Just wants to sit and tuck himself in and is oh so sweet!! Unfortunately he didn't want to try the ginger, so far he has only eaten outside his cage.

In my excitement yesterday I forgot to ask what subspecies (and a bunch of other things haha) I am waiting to hear back from the breeder.



Here he is:

In my experience with birds in general, babies squeak/cry/call a lot, but adults make most of the "noise" in the long run (if you compare babies to adults)

LOL...I just knew he was going to be a cuddly 'Teddy'. I didn't get the pic....perhaps it's just my old computer as this happens to me at times!
