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. (^_^)
