Smile hi there! :)

I'm sasha, i have kept budgies usually, but have just bought 2 rosa bourke's. this is my first time owning these birds so i'm eager to find out as much as i can. I will post a picture once they are a little more settled as i was told they are a hen and cock, but hopefully someone here could verify that for me. looking forward to learning all you can teach me.

thank you. i only got them yesterday, so am trying to disturb them as little as possible for now. But i'm hoping to get them hand tame eventually so they can be let out to fly. i keep them in my living room which is probably the quietest place in my house with 3 kids! lol. i've not named them yet as not sure about the sexes, but thinking on rosie and jim!

The bird on the swing could be male, and I could be wrong! Those claws do need a good trim. Towel them while you do it they're very beautiful though
