Today I convinced my mom to let me go to the pet store, and I love it there because it is a smaller business and they let you hold the pets. They have tons of pets there, they had turkeys and Pomeranian puppies today, along with two litters of cats, and some rodents. Plus the birds, and fish, and lizards.
There was the cutest little cockatiel there, she was a lutino with bright face patches, so at first I thought she was male. But a worker at the store said she was a female later, her owner was on vacation so she was there. I wanted to show my mom that I like birds and that I should get one, so I spent about twenty minutes with it. At first I put my finger near the cage to introduce myself, and a while later I put it closer and she began to play nibble/lick my finger. It was a weird feeling. After a while of that, she finally let me scratch her head. Oh, I loved it so much! Their feathers are very soft. My mom saw me and was obvious charmed by it, if it were for sale she would have bought it. She knows how much research I have done.
Anyway, I was charmed by this little one and thought I would share it with you :3
Ooh, and for you budgie lovers out there, they had handled budgies in a cage, it was like an aquarium without water. There were three that were probably a week or two old, and they had the tinyest little ones, they were one day old! Most of their bird section consisted of budgies, followed by canaries and finches.
They also had baby lovebirds, maybe rosy faced coloring, and you could put your finger by the glass and they would follow it. They were so cute! They were about a month old, they had all their feathers.
They also had a blue and gold macaw, which was really pretty. Also a parrot let, which was singing. Oh, and a black-headed caique, which was really friendly.
Sorry for the long post, I was just wanting to share my day
