As some of you are aware, a member recently posted that his family needed
to re-home two birds because they couldn't devote the necessary time to care for them.

I decided to adopt the precious little birdies!
JellyBlue (Susan) and I went this afternoon to pick them up
and bring them back to my house.
Both birds made the trip well and within 20 minutes of being here
they had successfully navigated their way out of their old cage
into their new home!!

I've decided to name the green lovebird "Pedro"
and the white lovebird's name is now "Poppy"!
Pedro and Poppy are residing in my living room during
their quarantine period while Sunny and Shelby are upstairs
in my bedroom in their castle.

Someday, after the baby budgie quarantine has ended.
(He'll be quarantined in a different bedroom upstairs)
and Pedro and Poppy's quarantine in the living room is completed,
the baby will hopefully move into the castle with Sunny and Shelby
and Pedro and Poppy's cage will be moved upstairs into my bedroom.
Their cage will be placed on the top of the castle and will become
the castle tower!! :giggle:

Since we've been home, Pedro and Poppy have been
exploring all their new toys, playing on their swings and loving life!!
Both have been very active, playful and chirping loudly to Sunny and Shelby.
They are obviously very bonded to one another
and I'm glad I was able to ensure they
will be able to stay together in their new "forever" home!!

And now, without further ado.....
introducing ---- Pedro and Poppy!!!

What kind of toy is this?



Ummm, Pedro -- what's that thing she's pointing at us!!



Guess we might as well sit here and look cute :rolleyes:...maybe she'll get bored soon.



OK, that's enough posing, let's get back to playing!!

They are super cute, and really pretty!
You don't have a Bourke's there though, they are both Lovebirds. :)
Congrats! they are gorgeous and they're both lovebirds:loveeyes:
You know, that's pretty funny because right after I made the initial post, I went downstairs and was standing there looking at Pedro and Polly and thought, I really believe the little white/blue one is a different colored lovebird. So, I came back upstairs and looked up Lovebird Mutations and then looked up Bourke's Parakeets and....
well, the two of you already know what I found!!

Then, I logged back onto TB and found your messages. Thank you both!

By the way, I'm feeling pretty stupid-o :eek: right now! :laughing:

You are quite welcome to call me "Deb". That's what all my friends call me. :)

Yeah, I think I've gone over the deep end now and my husband is probably on the verge of either having me committed or something equally as painful! :laughing2:

Only one more though -- the darling little baby budgie boy from Lindsey. That is, unless Sunny and Shelby pick on him after quarantine is over and then I'll have to get him a little friend... :laughing:

:nono: I wasn't planning on getting lovebirds...this just kind-of happened!

I will be staying AWAY from pet-stores, shelters, adoption sites, etc.

And, the cat-lady title belongs to my sister. She has cats and I have dogs (and birds, and more birds) :giggle:
