Picked Him/Her Out!

Visited the Bird Farm today again to visit the African greys and I've officially picked out which one of the three I want. I felt I just had a connection with that one, even though they are a bit young to distinguish any kind of personality really. I am in love already. He/she is so incredibly cute. I spent a good chunk of time holding and petting him/her. I will find out the sex within a few days. I don't mind which one it is at all.



I also got a video of him/her. You HAVE to watch. It's so cute!

Abby, he/she is absolutely gorgeous. I marvel at nature as that little fellow (I'm already thinking it's a boy ) is totally defenseless and totally reliant on love and bonding to exist. What a blessing it is to hold a tiny little life in your hand.

Ah shucks, I'm getting all sentimental.

Cheers,

John.

What a sweet little baby! Who wouldn't love him/her? Congratulations, I bet you are anxious to learn the gender. And then name picking, hehe. Fun times.

How cute, Abby!
The baby is beginning to walk but can hardly hold its head.
The chirps almost sound like African Grey, it's so adorable!

Thanks so much to everyone! I'm so happy I get to share these moments with you! I'm so excited and I will be visiting him/her often. Can't wait to bring him/her home. I still haven't heard whether it's a boy or girl. The wait is killing me!!
