    Talking Getting a new baby today!!- UPDATED

    I called the breeder's today and they have 4 cockatiels. They have 3 normal grey's and 1 pearl. All of them are handfed. The grey's are $100 and the pearl is $125. I have a cage set up and ready for the new bird. How long should I quarrentine it. The breeder is AWESOME and I have never seen a sick bird in there ever and she has got a ton of birds. I will try and post some pics tonight of the new baby.

    UPDATE-
    We went to the breeders and they had 4 tiel's. We started handling them and playing with them and we decided on a young normal grey. We are pretty sure he is a male because he is very vocal. He is young and was recently weaned off of handfeeding. He is sooooo sweet. He loves head scritches and will beg for them. He also settled in super fast. 10 minutes after we got him into the cage he started playing with toys. He also got a shower with me today and he loves his showers!!! I took some pics last night of him but for some reason the camera wouldnt let me download them onto the computer. I am going to have to get my mom to look at it for me. OHHH YA........we are either naming him Bubba or Luitenent Dan. Both names are from the movie Forest Gump. I think we are going with Bubba though.

    30 days is what they say. If you see anything wrong with it or any of yours make it longer. Vet check would be good also.

    I'm really glad you're remember the quarantine. That's an important part of bringing home a new tiel! Which one have you decided on!?? How exciting!

    Oh, that is so exciting! How much longer until they arrive? I have a normal gray male and he is an absolute love! Very trusting for a tiel. His name is Valentino. He is my baby! I can't wait to see the pics!
