    Re: I got my baby today!

    He reminds me a bit of those cartoon birds when they end up in a place that has really large creatures and it just sticks its head in, picks them up then takes it back to the nest as one of its babies. So I can see dinosaur too. So tiny though! Do you know what color he's going to be when he gets his feathers all in? Looks like he's growing in a bit greenish blue.

    Just a note for anyone who finds this thread off google: Pat has experience in babies this young, I would not recommend anyone inexperienced taking home a chick this little.

    Re: I got my baby today!

    He's supposed to be a blue. That's all I was told, lol. It looks like he might turn out to be a turquoise, but it's far too soon to tell, as you can see.

    I named him Gabby.

    Re: I got my baby today!

    These Indian Ringneck babies have huge feet and I wondered why. Then it dawned on me. I betcha that their feet are that big so that the babies can manage to perch with their parents. What clued me in was that this baby grasps things very strongly. His nails are huge and his feet grip tightly. I bet it has something to do with the locations of bird nests. Maybe the birds that nest close to the ground have babies with smaller, weaker feet and the ones that nest high up have babies with bigger, gripping feet. What do you think??

    And to think he was born on your birthday!! That is really awesome!! The two of you will no doubt have many birthday parties together!!

    Thanks for sharing the wonderful news with us!! Hope to see pics as he grows bigger and stronger!

    Re: I got my baby today!

    Kahnee's in love with baby Gabby. Today I took a little nap and was awakened to Kahnee squawking non-stop. That's not like him. Believe it or not, I've learned to recognize a few of his calls - one is his name for me and another sounds like he's trying to say c'mere like the cockatiel does. I heard Kahnee make both these calls over and over. So, what was the big problem? Baby Gabby was hungry!!!

    Here's a photo of Kahnee and Gabby together after the feeding session (they are being well-supervised):
