We're now the proud parents

The SO and I are now proud parents.

Of a cockatiel. (^__^)v

We're guessing it's a boy, but just in case, we're trying to decide on a unisex name. 'Birdie', 'Mr Cock' (by raydance) or any sci-fi (the SO's been into Dr Who and Stargate Atlantis recently) names are completely out of the question.

Thus far, it's quite happy to be patted and while the SO was putting together its cage, it hopped onto my finger after it had wandered around on our carpet a bit and I had tapped the carpet to coax it to approach me. It's very thankfully not a biter at all.

I'm not much of a bird person and it's still settling in its new home, but hopefully it'll have many happy years with us. (^_^)

Aw birds make lovely pets! One of my other flisters has had a cockatiel for a few years now!

I... would probably name it Sunshine or Sunset (the orange spot on its cheek!) or something cheesy like that, but then I did name my cat Muffin (and plan to name the next one Cupcake -.-'') so I'm probably not the best pet name giver right now.

I've never had a bird before (all my past pets had fur: dog, cat, rabbit, squirrel, guinea pig, rat, etc). This is a first for me, so I hope I can relate to it.

Thanks for the suggestion! The SO will probably object to them though. Trying to reach a consensus on this is tough. Imagine how difficult it's going to be when we start planning our kid(s)' names. (>_<)

What a sweetie! I love its sunshine yellow head! XD And the red on the side looks like blushing. X3 I hope to see more of it, so cute~ ♥

Ooh, and if it's a boy, the name Paxter came to mind. o_o Though honestly, it looks mighty adorable and spunky in this shot.

He is quite adorable and has learnt to hop onto fingers to be let out of his cage. He's quite happy to sit on our shoulder, while we're surfing the net too. Perfect for us couch potatoes. XD

What on earth did you think it was about? (Ô_o)

Um. I still think Piyo Piyo is a viable name.

*is shot*
