I spent at least 2 weeks waiting for the DNA test results, then finally I decided I couldn't wait any longer.
So yesterday, the breeder sent me down his tamest and quietest MB conure.
I finally picked him up at the airport at about 10:30 at night.
I had to wait for an hours car trip before I finally saw him/her (we think it's a him, and so does the breeder, judging by personality.

His name is Ziggy.
And he is beautiful! The cutest little thing I could have imagined.
His colours are stunning! Seeing them up close is so amazing.
I opened the box and he flew around the room before landing on the ground.
I put him to bed and had to wait a whole night before I could really get to know him!

The next day I found out that he is very quiet so far. In fact, the quietest bird I've owned! And he LOVES cuddles, and when I say loves cuddles, I mean he will chase you around and nuzzle into your hand, then close his eyes and go to sleep while you stroke him.

I don't know how I ever lived without him!!! :giggle:

The weaning is going well, and he loves carrots and orange things, and I always ask him if he feels like some of his 'orange' :lol:

He begs for his formula, but then doesn't take much, instead crunching at some seed, which I'm guessing is a good sign!

I am absolutely besotted with him, I can't stop watching him.
Seeing him just walk round the cage is enough to keep my occupied for hours.

And when people say, 'they are little clowns', they are right.
I saw him 5 minutes ago hanging upside down from his food bowl calling out "look at me!"

He's like a mini macaw!

I couldn't imagine a more perfect bird, except for Mr Tinkles, who I will never forget.

Here are some photos of him:




Close up :smile:

I told you you'd wonder how you ever lived without him. That's a total green cheek, snuggling in the hands....etc. Congrats!

Aww, what a cutie pie!! It does sound like the weaning will go well - he wants to feel like a baby, but doesn't really want the formula... typical conure! :giggle: Just keep doing what you're doing, give him a taste of formula then offer him something else to eat instead, and he'll wean just fine! :thumbsup:

He's adorable. Sounds like a relationship made in heaven. Maybe Mr. Tinkles had something to do with it :)
Thank you.
And I think you're right, I think he did have something to do with it.
