Ivy's home!

Ivy's home!

here's photos without further ado:

her first time out



she decided yes, she did like seed victory!




then she ate some mash! veggie beak here.


she's just beautiful! it's the first time I've ever seen a white tiel and i'm totally in love :love: and her personality - none of my others have ever shown their personality on day no. 1 but Ivy has. she's friendly, not at all scared, inquisitive and happiest when there's people in the room and background noise. she and Bjorn are already shrieking to each other she's does this raspy croony squeaky baby noise when she's eating - i don't know why. but she's definitely well weaned and LOVES her seed. she drank water today too and she's playing with the toy i made her.

i think she'll find quarantine a bit hard. it's difficult to spread my time between her and the other two - but I'll try my best it's only a month! i have a feeling she's going to be very confident and extravert - i hope Bjorn and Ollie love her

She is stunning! I have an albino budgie. The one thing I notice is her veggie beak extends to the white feathers on her face occasionally, lol, but I too love how they look.

Awh congratulations! She is beautiful regarding quarantine, we can never truly do it unless the birds are in completely different buildings and you put your clothes in bags and have a shower after every single time you come in to contact with the bird. The best thing to do would be to have a full check up/blood work and test for at least psittacosis. Being in the same house can still get dust and dander everywhere so there's still the possibility of things happening to your others. I've had it happen to myself, not trying to scare you, but I wish I'd screened my birds before hand

good to know Daisy. unfortunately my nearest avian vet is too far away for me to be able to get her tested etc. so i have to take the risk like i did with Bjorn, and do my best to keep them separate. it's scary - especially after hearing stories like yours. sometimes i wonder whether quarantine in the same house is even worth it - because really it's impossible to entirely limit contact. they are in the same air flow, no matter what room. but it's something that all cockatiel owners advocate

Oh I understand don't worry about it. The first time I had psittacosis I had to get to a normal vet! and he was absolutely vile and didn't have a clue! Was not a nice experience I do recommend keeping them apart still, but at the same time I often contemplate the same thing, is it really worth it? Without separate air space and proper disease testing during the quarantine period, it is impossible to keep them apart either way!

why are normal vets so irritating?!
and yes, i sometimes think that of course some little bit of contamination is going to travel between them in the same house - though i guess it's better than being 30cm apart

thanks everyone! she's just so extravert and hyperactive she's going to suit Bjorn well - two peas in a pod i think.
