Update: Newest Member of Our Flock

Last Sunday we brought home our newest flock member, JoJo! He came from our local parrot store where they breed and hand rear birds in-house and sell their own blends of parrot food. This baby is just over 3 months old and the sweetest thing ever. A vet visit is in order and a DNA test is too so we can find out it’s gender. We think it might be a girl but you never know :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Got our blood/fecal test results back and JoJo is completely healthy! JoJo’s DNA test came back as well and it turns out he’s a sweet baby boy!
He’s been able to slowly meet our other two cockatiels and he’s graduated to a bigger cage. We love him so much :gift_heart:

oh my GOODNESS. he/she is so pretty! please keep us updated on what the DNA test returns. you can definitely tell the difference in a hand fed bird and one that has not had any attention what so ever.

@snowmantis I just wanted to check in and see how JoJo was doing? Do you have any presents ready for him to open in the morning? :slightly_smiling_face:

Hey! It’s been a while but JoJo is doing great. He adjusted really well to our Harrison’s pellet diet and was DNA sexed as a male. He picks up on sounds really quickly and can wolf whistle and says “HI!” at 3am sometimes :grin:
For Christmas we bought a Squawk Box subscription for the flock and they got a bunch of new toys and treats. Thanks for checking in!
