So, yesterday morning I went and picked up 2 aviaries..
There is one big aviary, which I got for free and my (currently) inside Cockatiels will be going in that one, but it needs to be fixed up first before they can go in. I will post photos when it is all fixed up and ready, right now, it is pretty messy, and is in no state to take photos of!
Then, the second aviary is a suspended aviary, I bought it from my friend, she said she would give me a breeding pair of Cockatiels with it.. when I got there, she said she would give me a Cinnamon split to Pied male, as well as the breeding pair of Cockatiels, so I ended up coming home with 2 aviaries and 3 Cockatiels.
The Cinnamon split to pied male would have been lonely, he was in an aviary with 2 other Cockatiels, and she was going to sell him if I hadnít taken him because the 2 other Cockatiels he was in with were going in an aviary with other Cockatiels and she didnít want to put him in there too, I felt really bad for him. I am all for name suggestions for him, too! The breeding pair I got have names already, Lyra (female) and Sage (male).
Oh, I will add.. Lyra, the female, was plucked by her mate, Sage, breeding season just gone, this is the first time it has happened, but my friend assured me she will get all her feathers back within no time. Lyra is also missing 2 toe nails on one foot, not sure how that happened though.
This is the suspended aviary, when I get time, I want to change the set-up a bit, but it is okay for now:
Lyra (left) and Sage (right) - anyone have an idea what mutation(s) Sage is?
Nameless Cinnamon split to pied male:
Lyra, a bit plucked..
Lyra, Sage, Cinnamon (Nameless)
Lyra, Sage, Nameless again
Lyra and Sage
And like I said.. once the big aviary for my other Cockatiels is all fixed up, I will post photos.
I am hoping to get 5-6 more Quails to put into the Cockatiels aviary too.
