Pixie will be here on Friday :)
 
Just got off the phone with the breeder. She is doing very well and thriving without handfeeding for a week now so she is ready finally :). He will call me tomorrow with the details of the flight but says he is arranging it for Friday. I swear I am bouncing off the walls so happy :).

I got the details on her diet and everything for past week so I am going to just buy the same Zupreem pellets and such that he has been feeding. I am so excited I just can't tell you! :D

yay! I promise you, this will feel like the longest week ever!

I just noticed in your info that it says surgically sexed, was she actually surgically sexed or did you mean DNA tested? I didn't think people did surgical sexing too much now that DNA testing is so readily available.

My breeder only does the surgical sexing. He said his vet does it very quickly and he just brings in several babies at once for it at a very low cost and he knows right away versus sending away a blood sample and waiting on it for weeks at a time that apparently costs 3 times as much as the surgical testing does per chick.

I was worried about the idea of it but his vet is someone named Scott McDonald who is suppose to be a well known leader in the avian field so I trusted his judgement on that.

That is great news! I know how hard it's been for you to wait!

I've actually heard of Scott McDonald, so yes, he must be a well known avian vet.
