Default DJ has a baby brother!

So the actual same-parents brother didn't work out, but today we brought home a new little floofball to join our family.

I swear, there can't be anything much harder than walking away from a bunch of babies with only one in hand. Y'all, the cuteness was overwhelming!

DD12 did manage to pick just one, and chose this little blue and white guy (oh, please confirm he's boy!), and he's quarantined in another part of the house while we let him settle in and get to know him. I'm sure he knows DJ is here (as does the rest of the neighborhood), but while he's eating already, he hasn't made a peep yet.

The breeder said he was "6-8 weeks," so unlike DJ, we aren't sure his true age. If he's on the 6 week end of the spectrum, is there anything we should be watching for as signs of trouble? DJ was 12 weeks when we brought him home, and adjusted quickly and easily to life with us.

While we were brainstorming name ideas in the car, DH jokingly said "Snowcone" and somehow it stuck. So, here's Snowcone, aka Snowy...

One the car ride home -


Sleepy baby, safe at home -


The lighting isn't great in this one (the first two are daylight, this was in the evening), but we're super curious what his mutation is. Yes, his wings are clipped really short. No, we don't intend to keep them that way.

Snowy is cute and an interesting mutation. You will have to wait for an expert to weigh in on what it is exactly. I also love the name!

little Snowy!

Snowcone is adorable and I love his name too Yes, he's a boy, and I believe he's a sky blue greywing single factor dominant pied.

You picked a good name for him. He is snow white and very neat and tidy looking. Also, I find his overall appearance rather beautiful.

He's gorgeous! I love the whole color scheme he has going on..the muted colors are somehow peaceful haha. Might reflect his personality too lol. Hope to see more of him around.

Thank you everyone!

We are totally falling in love with him, and I feel bad that he seems to be having a tough transition. He's eating and drinking, but still so quiet and scared. He also seems to have a really hard time moving around the cage. It's a very different experience than the one we had bringing home a rather confident and curious 12 week old DJ.

He's chewing his seed hulls - is that normal, or a nervous thing? He has toys to chew on, but seems to prefer to sit in his food dish and chomp on the hulls after he eats the seeds.

Snowcone is an absolutely precious little boy!
I'm totally smitten with him.
Congratulations on the new addition to your family.
