Hello to the general populace!

Took a few new pictures of the princess this weekend. I haven't for a while since she's been having a terrible moult--it lasted a whole month and she replaced four out of six throat spots, two primaries, two secondary tail feathers, the main tail feather, and hundreds of down and body feathers :scare:
She's quite happy with how she turned out, though, apparently. She got lots of flax and two baths a day in her water bowl :giggle:
What do you mean, apparently! It takes lots of moulting to get to where I'm at...
If you say so, Princess. Here she is, with a few pinnies still but mostly done!

I have to ask: is it just me or does she have huge purple cheek patches? Every time she moults its like she gets more little purple feathers over there.






Thanks for stopping by ;)

Looking good Princess Mallorn :) love this seasons look :D
Thank you, thank you, I hear it's all the rage because of me...
She means; "Thank you Niamh, I humbly accept your praise" ;)
Ahhhh, I've missed beautiful little Princess Mallorn!

It's wonderful to see you in all your glory, Your Highness.
You are looking Fan-tab-u-lous and your purple throat spots are exquisite!
Thank you Deb, I've missed me too.
Mallorn, that makes no sense. Thank you Deb :D
What can I say, I look good on film. Thank you for the applause, Deborah. My love to the boys xxx

Oh my goodness, Princess Mallorn is gorgeous!
I'll have to show Alistair in the morning! :giggle: I'm sure he'd agree!
Thank you Amber ;) From one mum of a resident royal to another, I think Mallorn thinks he's handsome too, although she's too proud to admit it :giggle:
No surprise to see the lovely princess Mallorn looking prettier than ever ...:love:
Thank you Randy :)
She sends her love :rolleyes:

Well everybudgie knows purple is the colour for royalty so this seasons accessories are going to be those magnificent throat spots and amazing glossy feathers, what a Princess. Budget thinks she is so cool, and the other two boys would agree if I could entice them into the lounge where my laptop is .:love::bowdown:

My, Your Royal Highness, what a moult! I do hope your servant made herself useful while you went through your ordeal with all the forbearance ****ing your rank.

I must say the results are worth the dreadful month Your Royal Highness courageously put herself through. My humble congratulations.

My boys would be honoured to be introduced to your court (even though Clouds thinks everyone should be honoured to be introduced to him, should they be that lucky).

Princess Mallorn is even more radiant with her beautiful new feathers! :D

She does have a good set of cheek patches. Personally, I like them on the bigger side too and what I have noticed with mine over the years is that the cheek patches can increase in size as in the area covered by them after the first moult, when young budgies have their first replacement of cheek patches.
After that moult, there's no more increase.
The size of cheek patches also depends on the parentage, even in a clutch the siblings can have cheek patches of varying sizes, depending on whether they took after their mother or father. If both parents have big cheek patches, then the chicks will also have them.

Of course they are :cool:
I agree, Cathy--let's let those budgies know that purple is "in" this season :giggle: Mallorn sends her autograph to the boys :rolleyes:
Oh my goodness, 4 out of 6 throat spots! That's quite a molt :giggle:. How old is the gorgeous Princess Mallorn? I just love her particular shade of Aqua, and the opaline on the back too :)! Thanks for the update :D
It was, goodness gracious. You should have seen her right in the midst of it--she was practically naked! :scare:
Um, excuse you!
Sorry. But you did look pretty bad, little one.
Sometimes to go one giant fabulous step forward you have to go two steps back so I'll just go preen my feathers now bye
*sigh* Ah well. Anways, she's going to be 3 later this year :D It's hard to believe it's been so long already! :eek:
Beautiful, as always. You must let us know when Vogue has a spread set up for you.
Ah, thank you, you make me want to come back and continue answering my fan mail even though my mum is being irritating. I'm sure it'll be along quite soon!
Princess Mallorn is QUITE lovely! My Lemony is quite jealous of the lovely purple throat spots and quite put out that they are so large, as Ms. Lemony's aren't. :D
She really is very pretty!!
Ehehe, thank you Judy ;) Ms. Lemony is beautiful even without such large throat spots :D

Oh, well, I like you. My servant was very useful, thank you for asking. She was a slave to my every beck and call and gave me special treats for my feathers like flax seeds and almonds. I had baths in the Royal Water Bowl every day and I made sure to give a shout if I needed anything!
That she did...:eek:
It's good to hear you think I'm as resplendent as I think I am. I'd be happy to entertain such nobles as Sky and Clouds and even if Clouds is a bit ornery, he'll straighten out once he meets me, I'm sure. Cheerio!

:laughing: Interesting thing about the cheek patches, that's what I figured. :D
Deb! You sly fox! :rolleyes: Mallorn will be ecstatic.

Mallorn!
What? I thought that was it.
Not quite, darling. Come here.
This looks like the work of my most favourite Deborah, who humbly serves me to the best of her abilities! My, I look very royal--I knew it would be coming out soon! Glad I got the "first look"--I approve! :king:
Well, she said it! I approve as well ;) It's lovely, Deb, thank you :D
