So as you know, Stormy will be leaving me soon
so I've been looking in to getting another bird. I was at the pet store buying more food for Stormy and I saw the most beautiful bird and instantly fell in love. He saw me and jumped down from his perch and kept trying to rub against me through the glass. He was so sweet, and if it wasn't for his $400 price tag, I would have taken him home right then and there.
I don't know if it's a boy or a girl, but meet Linguinni!
When I tried to walk away he would cry. I've never heard a bird sound so devastated. The employee said Linguinni has been there for weeks and no one wants him. I'm heartbroken, I really felt a connection with him but my mom said no.
Could anyone tell me the gender based on these pictures? And if he appears to be in good health? I'll work on trying to convince my mom, but I want to make sure everything is okay with him. And I want to learn more about green cheeks before I buy one, of course!
Edit: I feel like $400 is really expensive. Is this price typical for a green cheek? I'd rather get one for cheaper but I would really like this specific bird. I felt undeniably attached to him.
