Hi everyone, I thought I would make another update of the baby lovebird I had to handfeed due to parents rejection.
The little one who will turn 8 weeks old tomorrow has just weaned and yesterday, I got confirmation that it's the girl I so wanted!!!!
I'm so happy, I saw her doing the airplane position a few times in a row, just like her bird momma does with Nico.

Today she took her very first bath of all, and I'm sure many will come!
Just look at her soaked to the bones! :D







And here she is after bath, all dried up and beautiful







These I took this past Wednesday, she loves to sleep on me, loves my cuddles and beak grinds when with me.




I love her to pieces and the bond we have is amazing, oh and I named her Khaleesi. :D

Wet birds are so so soooooo cute XD
I quite agree with you, but she wasn't very pretty or cute on the second picture, I guess I the camera didn't capture her good looks there! :)

Ana, your little lovebird is very pretty, I just love her vibrant colors :) Sweet.
Thanks, Dee! She turned out an almost exact copy of her older brother (from a different clutch) Lotas.
As I'm writing this, little Khaleesi is sleeping on my chest and chirping at the same time! :)

Khaleesi is a beautiful little girl. I can't believe how absolutely soaked she was after her bath! :giggle:
I don't think any of mine have managed to get quite that wet.

Khaleesi looks like a real charmer -- what a wonderful relationship the two of you have already established!

Thanks, Deb! I think she overdid herself because it was the first bath she took all by herself, I really doubt her next baths will be so thorough as her first!
Khaleesi wants to be with me all the time, I kept her alive through hand feeding since she was on the verge of 4 weeks old and from all of my flock she's the one most attached to me.
I call her my velcro lovie! :D

Thanks, everyone! She did have fun in the birdie bathtub and I was fortunate enough to actually be present for her first bath of her life. I didn't grab the video because I didn't want to disturb her, so I waited for her to be done with bathing to take some pictures.
