Introducing Shiko!

Sponsored Links
Hey everyone!

As some of you may know, I've been waiting since March to welcome a new fid into my flock. Yesterday I was able to pick him up from the airport, and oh my goodness. Nothing ever prepares you to fall in love all over again!

I was worried that when I picked up him, he would be upset, shrieking, and absolutely terrified... but not a peep! I talked to him on the drive home, and he was happily chewing away on the toys and munching on his food in the crate. When we got home, I opened his cage gingerly and let him come out to explore, and he has NO fear! Sounds don't bother him, things moving don't phase him, and he LOVES people! Strangers mean new friends to Shiko! I let him adjust to his cage, and I knew immediately I needed to get him so more difficult to chew toys, because he destroyed 3 of his toys within 20 minutes of being in his cage, haha!

He has also transitioned perfectly onto his pellets, loves fruits and veggies, and is just an absolute dream. I couldn't recommend my breeder enough to anyone, she socialized her babies so well! I'm SO impressed and in love!

Here's some pictures of my gorgeous baby boy, courtesy of my boyfriend! I have to wait at work before I get to go home and play with him some more... It's absolutely killing me, haha











I apologize for the blurry quality of some of the images, my boyfriend isn't the best at taking pictures, but here he is in all of his adorable blue glory!

Re: Introducing Shiko!

Shiko is gorgeous! He is just breathtaking. That is wonderful how quickly he is settling in with you, and wow, he already destroyed 3 toys? He must be feeling so comfortable there.
Congrats on finally having your new baby home with you, and please keep posting pics

Re: Introducing Shiko!

He is BEAUTIFUL. I love his colours. I'm jealous. I just got a baby Blue Crowned Conure and he is fearless too. I have had birds in the past from bad breeders and they were always scared, but birds I have had from good breeders were always fearless and confident. You must of got him from a great breeder for him to be so well socialized. I would still like to own a Ringneck eventually if I can find one, I think they are beautiful birds, I just can't find any good breeders though. Congrats.

Re: Introducing Shiko!

Congratulations Chantal! Shiko is such a cutie, and such a pretty blue! Sounds like you got one with a great personality.

Yeah, stock up on the bigger bird chew toys, I've heard IRN's can be very heavy chewers.

Re: Introducing Shiko!

Thanks everyone! He's such a sweet heart, I'm so in love. And Joe, I did try to upload a video of him eating some banana that my boyfriend had sent me, but my Photobucket app on my iPad won't properly upload it to my account for linking it here
