I'm a New Potato

Hi All

My name is Francine and Im from Western Australia.

Ive recently purchased a hand raised Pink and Grey Galah (Rose Breasted Cockatoo for the Non-Aussies).

I'm a New Potato-20140815113432.jpg
(wild Galah)

Hes still in his egg right now and I wont get him until hes been fully weaned.
Im doing all the research I can and wanting to give him the best life possible.

Potato is his name (actually its Captain Potato Salad, but were going with Potato), my 10 year old son named him. Were so in love already and hes not even hatched yet.

I just thought Id jump on here and introduce myself. Ill be searching and stalking through the topics trying to expand my knowledge.

Id love to get to know you and hear about your own feathered lovelies.
If youve got any best kept secrets or hints and tricks feel free to share them. Im all too eager and willing to learn.

Thank you for having me.

Kindest of regards,
Francine

Re: I'm a New Potato

Welcome aboard, Francine, congratulations well in advance for Potato! Waiting until weaning is complete is your first best decision!

Re: I'm a New Potato

Welcome Francine and soon to be Potato! I think you'll find here that there are no best kept secrets. We do however have tons of helpful advice and support, all freely given. Enjoy, and never be afraid to ask questions. Also, when the time comes, we all love pictures :-)

Re: I'm a New Potato

Welcome Francine and future Potato, aka Captain 'Sweet'? or 'Brushed'? Potato Salad LOL. Welcome to your family as well. I bet your son is excited! Have fun searching the forum for info on toys, cages, diet, training, and behaviour etc. Look forward to pics when baby is hatched.

Welcome to the neighborhood! Love the name your ds picked out for your bird. He's going to be a great addition to what sounds like a fun, loving family. Lucky little fellow!
