Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

Thanx everyone, yes she is a worthy holder of the Crown, she is a little beauty queen, although she is quite crazy from all that sugar!

She has been DNA sexed female, and Laurasea I take ZERO credit for converting her into a snuggle bug, I think that was pretty much all her own work!

As far as size comparison, think a smallish budgie with a short tail - I'd like to get a shot of her with Fang if only they'd sit still together for more than 5 seconds! Meanwhile here is a shot of my previous purple-crown Sludge with his budgie mate Pete from 2004 to give you an idea, although I think Lilly Pilly is actually a bit smaller than Sludge was.

I will post more pics when I can get them, especially some of her hanging from a bunch of eucalypt flowers, now THAT is cute!

Thanx again everyone for welcoming her, the mad, loveable little bundle of energy that she is!

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

Well, if she hasn't already shown inclinations towards a line of work, and I think she has, I believe she is perfectly suited to be a show-girl right out of The Moulin Rouge. Her makeup and coiffure are all set. She could use a coy little fan or similar outfit, oh and a nice little swing on which to perch and sway overhead. Cue the music!

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

She is so beautiful! Wow! And I'm so glad that she's gone from scared and feral to a velcro bird! Keep those pics coming!

Oh she is precious! I can’t believe you’ve kept her secret from us all this time. Sweet Lilly.

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

Thanx guys, I was quiet about her partially cos I desperately didn’t want to go and “jinx” her blood test results, but mostly because I was flat out working on trying to gain her trust so I was spending all day sitting with her and trying to keep Fang happy at the same time, the two were mutually exclusive for a while there!

Yes Gail she does look like quite the little showgirl, actually she does have a swing which she performs on and uses to swing herself over to her eucalyptus flowers. Sounds cute and it is, I only really have one decent photo but it’s mostly of her feathery little green bum, not very ladylike!

I’m very proud of her and the progress she’s made but she’s still not crazy about her daddy, hopefully she will work out that he is WAY funner than I am pretty soon!

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

Very hot here in Briz Vegas today, both birdies and parronts camped in front of the fan trying our best to stay cool(ish)! Chilled watermelon slices are going down a treat with La Principessa - she looks like a little jewel!
