    I swear he followed me home!

    At the very least, he separated me from a bit of money after I bought his flight cage and a ton of toys and perches to set up and put him in Quarantine from Nugget.

    Here's my no named little monster. Actually, he's a sweet, sweet boy - not as nervous as Nugget is. Very calm and confident little year old boy. Confidently tries out new toys and doesn't avoid them (Nugget needs a day or two to be confident new toys aren't going to eat her).

    He even is willing to come out of his cage and snuggle with me. Took me about two weeks before Nugget would even take a safflower seed from me - he took one when I first offered.

    Cute name suggestions appreciated! I'm liking Baboo (or Babu), but not sure yet. He sort of looks like a Howard. I keep asking him "what your name is????" LOL

    Camera shots are all I have.

    What have you done???

    He's ADORABLE!!! I can't wait to meet him someday!!

    Are you worried at all that he and Nugget will bond and then you'd be the third-wheel of the family?

    I'll have to study his pics and see if I can come up with any clever name suggestions.

    Nope - not worried about that. He has his own cage, and she has her own. He's in the living room, she's in the bedroom. They'll be allowed to meet and have shared and supervised play times once quarantine is over, but I won't be housing them together.

    I went to the same show I got Nugget from to pick up food, but I had in my mind that I was ready for another one if I fell in love. The last time I went, there were very few lovebirds.

    This time, there were a lot, but there were some questionable breeders with rough looking lovies that I just skipped and didn't even ask to hold, even though some were pretty - but they had some really rough tail feathers.

    This little guy had personality plus, and they knew for sure that he was a male. I asked to hold him, and he didn't freak out like younger babies do because they are so scared. The breeder said he was really sweet and that he didn't bite either.

    My friend Ashley who met me there said she thought he was the prettiest lovie at the show.

    Took me several weeks to build trust with Nugget, this guy is so easy going, we've already had a few visits.

    He and Nugget are contact calling to each other throughout the day.
