Jasmin aka Jazzy =)

Ok guys, she is home but scared stiff!

Bless her, she hasn't been out of her cage for almost a full month whilst her owner has been critically ill and then she spent several hours today in a travel cage while her cage had a quick scrub and then the trip here

She isn't bolting but she's sat very still and eyes fully dilated. I offered her some roti and she hesitantly took it but then instantly chucked it on the floor.

She is tame although I'll find out how much as she settles in and opens up to me. Her cage is a good size, will have to check those suspicious rust spots I can now see on camera and still needs a little wipe down with something good for dried on crud and I need to get her new toys etc and she will fit right in

Her owner passed away at 5am this morning. He is the second owner she has outlived . She was up for urgent rehoming due to the medical situation getting worse since christmas. Orange winged 'zons are the most common birds I see in shelters and they don't shift quickly around here that's for sure...I just couldn't leave her

She's something a little over 10years old. I will check for a leg ring tomorrow but she's all hunched down on the perch and I don't want to scare her more. Her original name is 'Jazzy D' but my kids are getting confused saying that so I suggested we call her Jasmin instead (and probably I'll still call her Jazzy for short) and they liked that better

Oh how beautiful! I can't wait to see updates. I am sure that baby will settle right in for you! I know my GCC has only been with us 2 days, and today we started to really see her personality. I have to get a video of her, she is less than 3 months, and already barks like my dog! LOL. Your baby is precious!! Can't wait to see more pics soon!

What a beauty, congrats.

I would look into the rust on the cage. Try to see if you can scrub it off, if not, you might think of getting it replaced.
