So excited! Waiting on new baby pi!

EEK, so excited. Last night I put a deposit down on my new baby female bronze wing pionus! She's 13 weeks old and will come home in 2 weeks! 25 years ago we got our first baby Maximillian Pi and our 25th anniversary is this spring. I had been looking off and on for the last 10 years for a baby bronze wing with no luck, and Finally! Actually, that's how I got my older male BW, I had been in contact with a pionus breeder waiting on babies and the last time I contacted him he said his female had died and so he was getting rid of the rest, so I grabbed the one male. He's actually a pretty good bird for having not been handled in probably a dozen years! Now... any suggestions on cages, is there anything new out there, my last was an avian adventures. Favorite toys for babies? Baby tips, I haven't worked raising a baby in quite a while, worked with OLDER birds and rescues a lot LOL. Thanks!

Re: So excited! Waiting on new baby pi!

I am positively GREEN with envy. My hands and house are full but a bronze wing is the last bird I have on my bucket list.
I hope to see and here a lot about your bird.
Congratulations.

Re: So excited! Waiting on new baby pi!

Another Bronze Winged Pi! I have to say I'm envious too.. as you'll have 2 and I'll only have one lol . I see that you're quite the Pi aficionado already!

Actually I had a female about 12 years ago, but she passed. Now I have a male. I find the female was more easy going and gentle than Raven is. My favorite parrot from the moment I saw them in a book 20+ years ago! Yes, they are harder to find nowadays than they used to be, for some reason. Many people that used to breed the species don't any more.

Texsize, I figured you'd see this thread

EDIT: I saw you were asking about cages. I really love this one for my Bronze Winged. 26"x34" and lots of interior space because it goes low to the ground. It was hard to find a larger cage that wasn't super tall.

Welcome! While you're exploring, you can take any issue or topic which interests you, use the Search Tab and then read about it. I still often do that.
I admire Bronze Wings so much. Their colors are just stunning!! If only the Rickeybird would allow me to have one!

Re: So excited! Waiting on new baby pi!

How exciting! You definitely have to post pictures when you get her.

I have wanted a Pi since the day I read an article about them in an old Bird Talk magazine, about 17 years ago. I am partial to the Bronze-winged and the Blue-Heads. The local bird rescue currently has two Bronze-wings and a Blue-head available for adoption. If only I had enough room and time for a third bird in the house. *Sigh*

Re: So excited! Waiting on new baby pi!

How exciting a new baby bird. I want one. How did you find the breeder? These birds are so hard to find.

If you have worked with older parrots and rescues I would think a fresh little baby bird will be easy. It is a clean slate you can to make sure it is socialized well and handled properly right from the start. Yeah photos would be cool.

Re: So excited! Waiting on new baby pi!

She comes tomorrow Honestly, I found her listed online, I periodically cruise through looking for baby BW. Working on thinking of a name now, might have to wait until I see her to finalize though. Our male BW pionus is Merlin, so trying to decide if I should pair it with something from King Arthur or Arrow crew or go off the reservation so to speak

So gorgeous, congrats! Boy or girl? Name?

I just showed the pic to my Bronze Winged boy Raven. He said "hi" through the screen .
