New addition

So a few months ago I adopted a pearl 'tiel hen named Astrid from another member here. Astrid is not tame at all, partially why I haven't posted any pics. (although I promise I will work on it) Through that interaction I was asked by a talk cockatiels member if I would be willing to be a rehome for her Pied pearl cock named Rocko. After a long process (due to my schedule) Rocko is now home and beginning to meet the rest of the flock. He is a very sweet boy who loves his scritches and has been just a joy to have here. So, introductions are needed! Meet Rocko!

He looks like he's doing so great! I can't thank you enough for taking him in. I think your home and flock are perfect for his personality and I bet he's so much happier there.

So glad Rocko is happy and doing so well! And Astrid, of course. Have they met yet? Lexi and I were talking about how funny it would be if they hit it off.

They have not formally met yet, he and Scurvy have had out of cage time together, but he just officially moved into the bird room today, so they will have plenty of time together soon! I will post pics once they have a few interactions. ?

Would you be against me posting a link to this thread over on Talk Cockatiels? He was pretty popular over there and they were really supportive when I first decided to rehome him, so I think they'd love an update.
