That didn't take long! Jenny, you win the prize. Unfortunately, there is no prize.
Cannary has been begging for a white faced tiel for a long time. In fact, we had a deposit down for one when she fell in love with Taylor, but they didn't have any, and she decided to go with Taylor instead - but she always hoped to get both.
This baby came in two weeks ago. They told her it was a white faced baby, but she looked at it and just turned her nose up. She wouldn't even hold it. We looked at it again last week, and same reaction. She had said she was going to hold out for a white faced pied, and it was just a white faced. Then, yesterday, it was perching on the edge of its little baby box. It's parents had plucked the back of its head, and those feathers are just now growing back in. She picked it up, and petted it, and that was that. I kept asking her why she wouldn't even look at it when it was younger, and she kept insisting she had never seen it before. I guess it looks like a totally differnt bird to her now than it did then. She thought it was too dark before, but now she thinks it is beautiful.
It has no name at this point.
But I want you all to note how this works - for you own MBS.
It is NOT my bird. It is my child's bird.
Additionally, she has always planned to house her tiel, when she got one, with her princess of wales. She did her homework on that before she got the POW. They should be fine together. They come from the same continent and are commonly housed together in aviaries. Do understand that if these particular birds do not like one another we will not house them together, but Taylor shows no hint of disliking other birds or having a desire to be housed alone at this point.
And, yes, I hope to post photographs of everyone this weekend. I have a 4 day weekend.
Sorry this got stuck to your thread.
