I've been active on budgie forums before but never an international one, so I want to take a moment to introduce my new lovely little lady properly now that she's settled in
This is Aphrodite, more commonly known as Dita With the help of several kind members on here she was identified as a Goldenface Skyblue Opaline. I got her as a rescue from a family who had gotten tired of her and today she was finally ready to be introduced to my male, Castiel, who will hopefully be her mate :3
While not tame, Dita is an unusually calm bird and she's very trusting towards people. She never reacts to my presence around or even in the cage, but if I get too close she'll turn away so I respect her space. Seeing she's never had any fellow budgies during her roughly 2 year old life, it was a beautiful moment when she finally met Castiel. The two are still getting used to each other but Castiel follows her around wherever she goes and she lets him sit up close to her so that's a good sign ^^ I'm very happy to see that they might bond as I am planning on breeding another clutch in the near future :3
For those of you who are curious, this is Castiel whom I hope she'll one day mate with :3
Castiel is the green Dominant Pied and is sitting next to his sister (at the time the photo was taken she was busy begging her father for food) who also still lives with me This was back when they were chicks so he has of course changed a bit since then
I really hope Dita will enjoy her life under my care and hopefully some day will become a great mother
