Meet Carrington, the Foster Cockatiel

He鈥檒l be staying with us for a few months.
the breeder that I use was in a bit of a pickle with shipping, so I offered to help give him a temporary home until it鈥檚 warm enough for him to head to his forever home (for a breeding career 馃槈).

He鈥檚 very quiet so far and seems quite content to sit and beak grind.

He鈥檒l have a cage all to his own, as it is never ever recommended to keep parrots of different species in the same cage.

He's beautiful, maybe it will be a foster fail and he is already in his forever home.:LOL:
My wife was incredibly clear that this was not an option 馃槀

I hope he is going to a really good home, it will be traumatic for him to leave you, I don't like the fact that he will be used as a breeder, somehow that makes me feel that he will not get a lot of personal attention.:(
So, you aren鈥檛 wrong.
already though, the breeder has taken to my pictures and videos and he just may end up as a pet ;)
He鈥檚 a natural pied, but with splits for Ino and White-face; so paired with the right girl I could see why she鈥檇 be interested in him.
But he鈥檚 just so stink in鈥 sweet ;)

How old is he?
10 weeks ;)
He wouldn鈥檛 be a breeder until a year or so if he goes that way.
I鈥檓 going to end up divorced 馃槄

Maybe she will get attached to him and give in. I started out with 4 from a rescue situation and over a few years it grew to 13, what's a few more :LOL: . My logic is, I care for them, pay the vet bills etc. the spouse does not have to do anything so what's the problem :ROFLMAO:, but I did not have young children around to deal with.
If they didn鈥檛 poop 鈥渁t will鈥 she wouldn鈥檛 mind them ;)

Just tell him to be careful, history seems to favor defenestrations o_O
He鈥檚 not a Russian oligarch 馃榿
