Yes, a new bird! Nate & the kids took me up to the pet store today and I picked out my new cockatiel! I’ve wanted to get a cockatiel for awhile now and since we already had a cage, it worked out well.
Our new bird is a baby – about 6 weeks old now – so we’re not sure whether it’s a male or female. It’s hard to tell before they’re 6-9 months old. Apparently once they go through their first molt at that age, their new markings are a good sign.
We think the bird might be a girl because it wasn’t as vocal as some of the others. So I’ll be saying she because another 6 months is a long time to say it!
I’m still thinking of a name, but I like Cherry, Peaches, Katniss (yes from The Hunger Games!), Bella, Savannah, or Phoebe. Or maybe something entirely different. Cherry is at the top of my list for now.
What do you think?
