Nobody panic ... but I found a new pet shop two towns away
Lovely and clean and nice staff.
Anyhow here's my questions:
Rainbow budgie: Yellow face II, I'm fairly certain. He had a very blue cere, no clear cap of feathers on his head, faint bars to just about his cere. Do rainbows have deep blue ceres as youngsters?
All white budgie: Gorgeous baby! Big black eyes you could swim in (gasp). His cere was very pink so I assume boy - no tan, no white, just lovely sweet pink. So boy, likely? Also he had the faintest blue on his cheeks - you'd miss it if you weren't standing there swooning over him
What would you call that mutation? She said he only came in last week.
I should've taken pictures. I came home without one but they were so clean and happy and healthy I am VERY tempted to go back. The white was was happily chatting away to himself, the rainbow was singing in between beak fulls of food and preening one of his buddies.
I might just. Might! ... I am prepared to keep working with Fred individually, and working with a new one as well. I have a quarantine cage etc. But I calmly came home to think about it.
They were the nicest looking pet shop birds I have ever seen in this area.
