Last week I went to the pet store to get Khaleesi her very own swing and some food for the flock, I decided I might as well check the birdies they had there. They had in my humble opinion THE most beautiful lovebird, the colour I have always wanted so I was in a dilemma, should I take it home or not?
That was on Monday, June 17th and I left empty-handed. Had to think about it carefully because I already have a large flock (6 budgies and 5 lovebirds). And I was afraid the newcomer wouldn't get along with any of my single lovies.
After much thinking, I decided to go back to the pet store by the end of the week and if my dream bird was still there, then I would get it.
I guess you all know how by now how that ended. The guy at the store checked the cloaca bones and said it's likely the bird is a female, which is great if it's true. I didn't say I wanted a female because that could influence him in deceiving me on purpose.

So here is the newcomer, it was vet checked and I could introduce it to Lotas and they get along really well! :D

Isn't she lovely?


It's a dark eyed clear fischer's lovebird


It has a ring that says it was born in 2013 so she is very young, under the age of 6 months and hasn't gone through its first moult yet.


This is Lotas, not only did he won second place on the bird show, now he has a new cage mate and possible girlfriend!


They preened each other after 30 minutes of being together.


Here is Khaleesi, I had just caught her trying to take out the U letter from my laptop. :D

A few more pics of the newcomer, I got her on the first day of Summer, June 21st. And I named her Fénix (Portuguese word for Phoenix).

She reminds me a lot of Lotas and Khaleesi's mother, Sindel which also loves being a bat






She adores the swing even more than she does Lotas


Her colours will get more intense as she starts to moult and the orange will get more dark and fiery. :)

Thanks, Kat!
She has been a joy to have so far, loves her veggies and actually eats them, not like Lotas that usually just destroys them and makes a mess.:eek:
Now that he sees her eating them, he is also starting to not just play with his food. :)

Thanks, Randy!

This afternoon there were a few baths and Khaleesi wins the prize hands down of the most wet of all. She manages to have the water reach her skin!
It's her way of celebrating her 2 month old landmark today. :)


Now I know all her baths will be like this. :D








Fénix also took a celebratory bath today for her first week in her new home!
It was tricky to take her photo as she is still a tad wild, but you can see she has her chest area a bit wet still.

Your new lovebird is so beautiful! I would call her Summer though :) Now you have even numbers of birds, hehe. Six budgies and six lovebirds!

She is lovely! Those sunrise colors are just
so eye catching, and she seems so sweet as
well. Congrats on a lovely addition to the
flock.

Khaleesi's bath look was a real laugh. I have
never seen such a bad hair day on a bird
as she managed in that post-bath look. But I
bet she had a good time, too!

Indeed, I have 6 of each and that is my limit. No more birdies, not for a while at least! Summer is here and many lost pet birds find their way to my house and I can't say no to a stray in need of help.

Thank you! :) My house has double the noise now with the newcomer!
Yes, Khaleesi had a blast taking her bath. The weather here is getting very hot, so I'm sure more baths will come for her and my other lovies!

she's gorgeous. Did you get her name from Game of Thrones?
Yes, I did! Khaleesi is very bonded to me because I ended up hand feeding her due to parents' rejection. She is my little princess and very spoiled! :)
