Arrow Please Welcome Our New Baby Greenwing

Hello Everyone,

Please Welcome Our New Baby Greenwing, Hatched March 21st 2014

We have about 8 weeks till we can take him/her home
( guess how many miles I will be driving once a week over the next 8 weeks )

For those that didn't get any text from the other thread, Going to M and D bird farm was a GREAT experience:

When you walk in to see a bird they immediately take you to the washroom and make everyone scrub their hands with soap, then they make you use a hand sanitizer, THEN they make you put on a freshly cleaned "hospital" gown

This really impressed me, at least they are "trying" to control contamination
No one is allowed inside the nursery AND the nursery is on a separate HVAC and ventilation system to keep air from other areas getting into the nursery

Another thing that impressed me were the employees or should I say their job classifications, employees in charge of feeding just do feeding, other employees in charge of cleaning only do cleaning, I'm sure that goes a long way to help keep the birds food as clean as possible

Anyway, On with the PICS !!!

Re: Please Welcome Our New Baby Greenwing

Beautiful but I am not sure who looks happier, her or the bird. Those pics look like the bird is already in love

Re: Please Welcome Our New Baby Greenwing

Oh Joe, I'm sitting here with tissues. Seeing Rissa's face is making my eyes sweat something fierce. Insta-love!

What a super precious, beautiful baby you have all found!

I am so very happy for all of you!!!

Now tell me if I'm wrong, but you must be BEYOND tired. When's the last time you slept?

As you go visit "Precious" regularly, you will already develop a bond, and it will make the transition so much easier once you bring him/her home.

MANY MANY CONGRATS...and hugs!! XXX

Re: Please Welcome Our New Baby Greenwing

Congrats on the new birdy. I guess we all have different points we would look for with a breeder, but most importantly, the bird you are bringing home, you are happy with I am sure this beautiful baby will be in your family for a very, very long time. And your daughter does look very happy. Will this be more her bird, or a family bird?
