I still can't get rid of my excitement but I just had to share you guys pictures of the new addition. We're not a trio anymore. Four birdies!
I wanted to get a friend for Snowy for over a year. If you have known me for some time you probably knew about me wanting to get her a friend. I finally started doing some online digging. At first, I found a really good breeder but things did not work out between us. She was only breeding exhibition budgies for shows only and sold all her other ones.
For everyone its different but we don't have many English budgies in Toronto. Most budgies are fancy budgies but I really wanted a English budgie. I finally made a ad myself (I know a bit crazy) and made a post about what I was looking for and added pictures of the type of colours I was looking for. I was very lucky because the first person who replied ended up being who I went with.
It took me a two hour drive to get there. I thought I was dead because I got out at 7:45 in the morning and it was a LONG and COLD ride. The gentleman only had three birds available in the colours green, grey and blue. I didn't want a green one because Kiwi was green. The green was SO pretty but I wanted something different. I remember seeing Edward and fell in love almost completely. He looked very different than when I first saw him through email. When I saw him in person he had his cheek spots and he also was a bit of an darker grey. that was EXACTLY what I was looking for.
A little bit about Edward now. I chose the name Edward because I live in Canada. Canada holds a special place in my heart. Prince Edward Island is a province of Canada consisting of the island of the same name, as well as several much smaller islands. I'd probably switch between calling him Edward or Prince. He also had nicknames already. Eddy and Ed. I'm so happy. What more can I saw. I'm just SO happy.
When Edward came home, he panicked a bit and ran behind my closet. This is a bit embarrassing but he got a bit dust on his head. Seems like I need to do a bit of an cleaning. Edward is very loving and gentle. He steps up but doesn't know how to step down yet. He also allowed me to give him head scratches. He also is very large. Even his feet is huge! Before anyone kills me, here are some pictures of my little boy. Oh! I Almost forgot! His 2 months old!
***If you follow me on instagram, lets keep this a secret till tomorrow. I didn't announce it yet so hopefully we can keep it a secret till then***
Congratulations on Prince Edward, Fatma ! He is really CUTE . Looking forward to hearing more about him, and after quarantine, seeing him interact with the others!
I really love the color... question for mutations experts, he looks mauve to me, but on his lower abdomen you can see more of a plain gray. Is he sf violet gray?
Aw! Thanks! I'm very happy and VERY excited about the new member as well!
I'm wondering his mutation as well! Hopefully someone can see this post and help out a bit. He's got a white, black and grey wings so yeah...
