I do not see images with posts 1, 6, and seven, but all from post 10 to present are excellent!

Re: New Blue and Gold

Scott,

Thank you for confirming that. I can just re-post the photos later in the thread. Its just odd that they were fixed, then disappeared. (It's the Engineer in me that wants to know what happened ) LOL

Thanks

Thanks, Kelly and Karl

Here are a few pics from our visit on 6/15/17. He/she is growing nicely, more plumage, very happy, more active this visit. We do not know the sex yet but expect results in a week or two.

Thanks

Really active, lots of wing flapping and exercise. A lot more feathers. Loving all the attention and scratching under the wings. 10 weeks old. We were amazed.
Still no results on the DNA test. We've been tossing around a few names but really want to wait till we know the sex.

We hope you enjoy the update and a few pics.

Re: New Blue and Gold

So we went to see our girl on 8/6/2017 and had a few pleasant surprises.
1. She graduated from the nursery to the big bird room where she is sharing a cage with her sister and an older B&G who is there to show them the ropes, (perching, climbing the cage, eating, etc.)
2. She started eating softened pellets and likes grapes.
3. She was presented to us with out her baby basket and she is very anxious to explore !
4. This week she will be moved to her own cage but still next to her sister and mentor.
5. They are estimating another 2 weeks before she can come home with us.

We had her out for about 2.5 hours, lots of wing exercise, looking out the window, under wing and head scratches, kisses, and mutual preening. It was absolutely great. After 2.5 hours she actually took a nap in Kellys arms and mine too.

Still no name yet. We have narrowed it down but then added a few more to the list today. This is really tough, but we'll get there.

A few pics from our visit and we hope you enjoy the updates.

Wow Kelly has soft feathers

Re: New Blue and Gold

We saw our girl again today. Wow she is growing fast and was really wound up this morning ! She was in high gear

We are very pleased with her progress. She is still in a single cage with her sister and mentor B&G. I think she fell a little behind on moving away from formula and the may have to keep her a little longer to ensure she is ready. Than is fine with us and we understand that this process has no definite schedule. We just want to be sure she is ready when we bring her home.

Anyway, we had a very very enjoyable visit with her today and she is showing strong signs of bonding with both of us. It's getting harder to leave because we know it will be another week before we get to see her again.

Since we are starting to see more of her character, we hope it will be easier to zero in on a name. We just want to make sure her name has a solid meaning, fits her well, and is something that she is proud to carry with her.


A few more pics for your viewing pleasure..... enjoy

Kelly and Karl


Hey.... Hey..... Is that thing turned on.... good, cause I want to show you something.



Wheeeeeee, look at me. This is fun !!



Just wondering what I would look like as a brunette.


Man, she knows just where to scratch just right. LOL, I got them trained already

We have no idea where he got it from, he just started with it one day.
He picked it up from Fozzie Bear. Birds are very closely related to muppets if you didn't know. Where do you think Beaker and Gonzo came from?

Re: New Blue and Gold

Amazing update! And they're allowing her to fledge? Sweet! Just look at that gorgeous wingspan!

If they aren't already, you should ask if they can work on harness training her. They're easiest to harness train when they're young, and it will be a VERY worthwhile investment of time.
