Smile Meet my Darling Darla !!

Hello everyone!
I just wanted to introduce myself and my baby Darla.
A little back story on me- When I was a teen about 8 years ago, I owned 3 budgies. I never did research or read about them and they were pretty much given to me as a bday gift. I didn't even know they had a capability of talking or EVEN that they were considered parrots. I enjoyed them and spent time with them but never had that interest before purchasing them on my own since they were a gift.
About a week and a half ago i began reading books from the library on conures, parrot behaviors and care. I soon came across cockatiels and parakeets. I then found myself deciding which was a best suit for myself and our household... a parakeet, a cockatiel, or a conure.
I have 2 wingless babies(children) and i am currently 5 months pregnant with out son. I didnt think have a cocktiel, whom i read was prone to thrashing was a good ideal with loud children.
A conure for us was quite a bit out of our price range.
Finally, i remembered about the parakeets i used to own, and so i began my research. I read books and kept an eye out on facebook pages. reading questions and answers people had. I fell in love.
SO, a week and a half later, we purchased out little Darling Darla
I am so glad that i took the time to research over and over again. Although I am still learning, i feel like i am ahead of the game and have found myself able to answer most questions people have asked....

Little Darling Darla came home with us and has been coming out of her cage perfectly fine from day one. She is allowing us to hand feed, she has been such a jewel and a blessing.
Tomorrow she has a well check up visit later on we would like to do DNA testing but that is later on down the road.
Here are a couple of pictures. I look forward to meeting all of you and learning new things with every thread!!

Hi, again!

Hello sweet Darla -- you certainly are a pretty little girl.
I met you already on the thread your Momma posted in the "Budgie Sexing" section of the forum.
On that thread I gave your Mom lots of links to good stuff on the forum so she'll know everything possible to make sure you have the VERY BEST life!

All the FaeryBee Flock hopes you'll love being here on the forum and look forward to seeing you again soon!

Hello and welcome to TB, Darla is a sweet looking budgie with beautiful eyes I might say ANy questions please ask and we love seeing pictures one little hint that will help you , place some newspaper or kitchen paper on the bottom grate this will help a lot with cleaning and also makes it easier for Darla to walk when down there. It is a great catcher of poop too, budgie poop tells you a lot about their health and wellbeing so that is another plus.

thank you for the warm welcome! she certainly is a beautiful girl!!
oh yeah, i remember cleaning my grandparents parrot cages. I have actually waited to put the newspaper down because Ive been having to remove the fecal matter from her vent every time she relieves herself. I wanted to keep an eye on the look of her feces, that is why I haven't places newspaper yet. I read that it could be getting stuck due to being on an all seed diet, and she could be dehydrated. No matter the case, I am keeping her clean so her anus doesn't get irritated and cannot wait to get her to the vet tomorrow to find out why.
