Just got this little gal today!

I've been looking for the right bird for me for a long time... I'm 31 and I grew up with a YSGCC that my mom still has to this day and I've wanted to add a bird to my family for a very long time. This one just sort of landed in my lap. A co-worker bought her (not sexed but calling it a her lol) for a Christmas present for her daughter and it turns out that the daughter is allergic to birds.

She was going to try and sell her on Craigslist and I decided to take her home instead! I'm not totally sure of the coloring so if someone here could shed some light on that for me I'd appreciate it.

I'm still totally undecided on a name but I'm sure one will come to me

I bought a cage that should do for a night time cage while I wait for the large cage I'm ordering to arrive (they had her in a tiny tiny thing much smaller then even your average parakeet cage), millet, cuttle bone, seed and pellets as I'm going to try and transition her to pellets, some fresh fruits and veggies and like a dozen or so toys to rotate out. Let me know if I've forgotten something crucial so I can pick it up on the 26th!

Re: Just got this little gal today!

What a beautiful bird. I'm in love with a lovebird, as well. He owns my heart and is seldom far from my side. You will soon know the level of their devotion. Congratulations on your new beauty. I love the name you chose, too!

Re: Just got this little gal today!

Welcome to the forum & welcome to Minute as well. I don't have any experience with lovies so I can' t help you with het color. She is a beauty, such a bright hue. I'm sure someone who keeps lovies will.be able to tell you. Good luck & I'm glad you decided to get her. No fling what kind of home she might have gone to otherwise.
