Talking Newbie here to say hi.

I've been on TalkCockatiels for quite awhile now and have loved the community I found there among bird lovers. I've owned tiels for almost eight years now, and currently own five, having lost one to a prolapsed cloaca a few weeks ago. Recently, my flock has expanded to include a wonderful little pineapple GCC my friend dubbed Reptar and the name stuck. He is the sweetest thing, and such a close companion already. He's still very young, just weaned, and still getting the hang of flying around, but has already improved a ton the past few days and he loves flying to me (aka STRAIGHT into my face). His favorite place is curled up against my neck or buried under a sweater, and he really is such a little clown.

I'm new to the parrot world, since I feel like tiels are just different in all their little ways and I can't wait to learn more about GCC's and larger parrots in general. It's definitely been an exciting journey with Reptar so far. I included photos of him at the bottom. In addition to Reptar and my five tiels, we have two dogs and seven desert tortoises of various ages.

But I included some pictures of my baby and the other birds. In the last picture, from left to right, my tiels are Asher [pastelface pied male], Nyx [WF cinnamon pearl pied female], Tink [cinnamon pied male] and Bird [pearl male]. And hidden inside the cage is Rhea [lutino pied female].

Hi welcome over to the the forum... What a beautiful little pineapple! That's going to be one very red bird when he fully colours up! Hope you enjoy this forum as much as you do TC!

Hey, a name I recognize! Good to see you. Thanks for the welcome (: I can't wait to see how his colors shift as he grows up. This is a whole new world to me from tiels.

Another face I recognize! Thanks Haimovfids <3

@ P'letsRock: They're all fun forums to be on for sure! I was googling pineapple gcc and most of them have a lot more yellow. Such a pretty mutation overall though! Don't think I've seen pictures of yours, but I bet they're lovely (: Reptar's already such a cuddle bug, if I'm moving around my room, he always flies over to my arm to say hi. I've got a leech stuck to me at all times now xD

Hi Lindsay, to Talk Parrots to you and your flock.

I'm also a mermber of Talk Budgies (Betcherrygah) and Talk Cockatiels (Nimphicus), so it's good to see you here as well. I spend most of my time here.

Thanks for sharing your photos, they're just gorgeous.

Cheers,

John.

Hey, welcome! I love your new pineapple GCC btw, they're one of my favorite birds! I just love their coloring and how tiny they really are [at least, the one's I've seen aren't as big as I originally expected them to be]

Thank you corgie and catalinadee! <3 When I had first picked him out, he was still pretty bald so it was amazing watching the progression in pictures as he grew up, seemed to change so much every day. The feathers around his head are almost fully grown in now just in the short time since the pictures I posted.
