Default My new bird ;)

Hi All,

I've been looking for a handtame English Budgie for months now and have not found any yet. I really wanted a handtame although Amigo is becoming more tame by the day to my delight. Anyway, I was at the petstore the other day and saw this parakeet in a small cage away from the other parakeets. I asked the clerks and they said a woman bought a pair in that she bred and they were hand raised. One was sold and this little girl? was all by herself. I just couldn't resist. I love her coloring and was wondering if anybody can tell me what she is. From what I'm reading it looks like she's some sought of Dilute??? When she's outside she looks much lighter and almost has a grey cast to her, very pale. I named her Bella Her feet look like they have a blueish cast to them, although it didn't show up in the pics. She's still nervous and unsure so I'm leaving her be and letting her get used to her new home. She's not banded or anything, so really only going by what the petstore said. I think she's pretty young though?

Thanks all!

Thanks!!! I always liked that name. She certainly is pretty, she looks violet colored, I almost called her Violetta but decided on Bella.

Thanks all I took her outdoors to try and get a more accurate pic of her coloring. I don't think she's a spangle. Amigo is a spangle and doesn't look the same. I'm guessing either grey wing or dilute, but would love to hear from the experts !
