New Blue and Gold

Sponsored Links
Hello,

Here are a few pics from our first visit to see our new Blue and Gold. He was hatched 5/10/17. We had a great time and it was good to spend some bonding time with our new family member. We are having him sexed and hope to find out sometime next week if we have a boy or girl so we can pick a name.

Thanks, Kelly and Karl

Re: New Blue and Gold

In case anyone was curious about the username "WakaWaka", PJ our Severe used to say that.
We have no idea where he got it from, he just started with it one day. We always had a good laugh when he would say it.
Of course we plan on introducing that to our new baby.

Thanks
Kelly and Karl

Re: New Blue and Gold

Hmmm, that's where all the beak marks came from on the video controller

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
Kelly and Karl

Re: New Blue and Gold

We had a fantastic visit with our new baby today (7/23/17). Wow is he/she growing !!!
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.

Thanks
Kelly and Karl

Hi, you picked a very special parrot I just bought an eight year old blue and he is great his name is Marty. He is a very jealous guy towards my green wing but I just got her five days ago so I believe Marty will get over it. I'm replying too you too let you know my Marty talks sings barks like a dog quacks like a duck just has an awesome personality good choice.

Thanks, we knew she would be special. She was hatched one day before we lost PJ. We are taking that as a good sign.
We are hoping she has the good nature of a lot of B&Gs that we hear about here. She will certainly get a lot of love and attention.
Yes, we are referring to our new baby as SHE because we just got the DNA results today.
Its official, its a GIRL !!!
It sound like yours is very loving and a real comedian We will do our best to nurture good behavior and nice vocals from her.

Now we need to pick a name. We'll get there, not rushing.

Some pics from our 7/23 visit


Exercising her wings


Being cute and just learning to steady herself on her big feet

Thanks
Kelly and Karl
