Want a Pickle With That

I definitely wanted a Pickle with that, which is why I have a new birdy baby at my house.  Meet Pickle.  He's only about 8 weeks old.  I bought him from a breeder in Maryland who hand fed and hand tamed him.  He's still in the "stranger-danger" phase, but he's getting used to me and letting me take him out of his cage and put him on my shoulder just to hang out.  In fact, he's hanging out with me right now.  :)

I love his coloring, and he's a healthy little baby.  I'm looking forward to lots of years together with him. Even though he's a little afraid, he hasn't tried to bite me once.  Good boy, Pickle.
Here's my baby sleeping on me.

Isn't he beautiful?

Hanging out with mom

I hope he really gets used to hanging out with me.  I love having a bird again after missing those little birdy sounds the last few weeks.  I was never able to tame my other bird, Binks, even though I loved her.  Having a baby that's hand fed makes such a difference.  Even though he's a little skittish, he'll sit step up and let me take him out of the cage after just a few tries.  Love my baby Pickle.

Such bright colours! He is very pretty indeed. So sorry to hear about Blinks, her colouring was quite beautiful too.

Hi! Do you own many birds? I have 7 dogs :)

Hi Mark, thank you for leaving me a comment! I only have one bird. My other bird died and I got Pickle from a breeder. I've only had him a few months now. He's really tame and talks! I also have a cat. I used to have dogs, but now I work too many hours to have a dog. I love them and hope to have one again when I retire.
