On Friday morning, I got this new baby Scarlet-Chested Parakeet (Neophema splendida) from a breeder I found on Craigs List. He's kind of like the ugly duckling now but will soon have the spectacular colors of a mature Scarlet-Chested male.

He's about 4 months old and was hand-raised. He's fully-flighted (not wing clipped) but he has settled down pretty well already and is pretty tame, as you can see. My female Bourke, Twitter, is a little intimidated even though he is smaller and totally not aggressive. I think he just wants to be friends but so far, she is not being real friendly to him - lots of squawking and hissing - but it's only been 2 days! (and they are in separate cages next to each other).

What a gorgeous bird!

I absolutely love the bird room, they have such nice cages! Hope they get on!
