I got convinced that I needed a fourth bird to equalize the pairing, so I did it - This little guy's name is Messi, I fell in love with him at first sight, he was in a cage all by himself, the flea market owner doesn't put any toys, or any sticks they lay in their own filth for days and I wish I could take them all, but this little guy was rolling around on the cage floor, he was very chirpy and flying back and fourth in the tight space (his beautiful crisp white wings got me in awe). I had to take him home
I think he is a bit older (because of cere, it's already super blue) - I believe he's under a year old? Can someone help with the age?
Congrats on your new boy, I love his colouring!
I see some development on the irises but still I believe he is under a year old. Looking at his overall condition I'd say he is around 8 months old.

Dynamics seem great, although junior my little blue guy, he thinks hes king of the cage and he beak attacks poor little messi, i try to keep messi outside of the cage while the others stay inside but messi runs inside so he bullied
