Just another photo of my new little girl that should be coming home in a week or so. Still has to be weaned.

She is SO Precious!!

Once you have her home and have named her, I'll retitle your thread and make it into an on-going picture thread so you can share all of her pictures in one thread over time. :)

Thank you! I can't wait!! Hopefully next week! I would have loved for her to come home this weekend because I have all next week!

Do you have her cage all set up for her?
I know when I got my budgies, I spent a great deal of time (and money) ensuring I had everything I could think of for them. :laughing1:

I just ordered her this cage,
I do have a cage here, just in case she comes home before the new one arrives.
I also ordered her some new toys and perches and a playpen for the top of the cage. Some will be delivered tomorrow :)
Do you think I should keep her in the smaller cage ( 18"W x 20"H x 14"D) for a bit because she is a baby?

Here she is today. I couldn't get a photo out of her tank, she doesn't sit still. Lol! The photo in my hand was from the other day when my daughter was with me. The other blue and white boy was my first choice from this clutch, but he already had a deposit. He is the most amazing little guy. He prefers people over his siblings. My little girl is so beautiful. Had fun with them today :)

That's a great cage which you've chosen for her! Well done.

You may want to keep her in the smaller cage for a couple of weeks but it isn't really necessary. She'll be fine in either of them.

Make sure you have a cover for the cage so you can get her used to being covered at night and start her on a regular schedule for sleep and get-up times.
I cover the top, three sides and 1/3 of the way down the front of my cages.
It's important to have a nightlight in the room to help prevent night frights.

Thank you for your advise. Some of her toys came today. I may start her in the smaller cage, so it doesn't seem so big and empty. I know they clipped her wings. As I was there visiting and one of the babies took off in the store. He did come back after awhile. So it would probably be easier for her to move around. I am getting her from the same pet store I got my Green Cheek from 15 years ago. I guess quarantining should still be done? They have had the same only breeding pair at the shop for a few years. All of the offspring, they are still in touch with, are all healthy and chatty :)

Quarantining the budgie in a different room from the Green Cheek is still recommended.

Since her wings have been clipped, the smaller cage will probably work better for her until she molts and grows back her flight feathers.

However, I have a large flight cage and one budgie that doesn't fly at all and she simply climbs around to get where she wants to go in the cage. ;)

Okay! Thank you! She better come home soon. I just keep buying stuff for her.
