I was supposed to go tomorrow but out of fear of the babies getting sold, I went today. On my way home a wicked snow storm started, but rest assured, the baby is warm and safe.

The store owner told me she thinks my baby is a girl based on her pelvis, so to be safe she will receive plenty of calcium throughout her life. It was a 3 hour drive there and back for her and I couldn’t be happier. She is gorgeous. The lady let me know that she was weaned recently (the 18th) and they are eating both seed and pellets. To be safe she told me a “15 minute rule”- let the baby out to play and socialize for 15 minutes, then let her rest for two hours to make sure she can nap/get enough time to eat her food.

Here’s a picture and I will update this thread with more photos when I can.
This of course is a travel cage and not her permanent one.

I haven’t thought of a name yet

Congratulations! What an adorable little baby. I’m so excited for you! I brought home my first green cheek this summer and it’s been such a wonderful journey. It sounds like yours is settling in well.

There are blue and turquoise words that you could use to name her. Like azure, aqua, ocean, stormy, lapis, etc. of course maybe you want to get to know her a bit before naming her so you don’t give a goofy name to an elegant bird or vice versa.

What a beautiful color!

Yeah I’m still waiting. She’s taking a bit to come out of her shell, play time isn’t play time to her it’s more of “let me get into moms neck as much as i can” LOL

She isn’t moving much when I take her out, I’m guessing she’s still shy
