I didn't want to post that I was DNA sexing Floyd last week to keep you all waiting so I thought it would be better just to post all at once

So.......




The results are........
























Floyd is female!

So now I have a boy and a girl. Her new name is Sidney. I promised Nathan (Kirby) that if her DNA did come back female that I would get a nestbox and breed. I'm researching breeding as of now, and I think I will parentfeed as I probably wont have time to handfeed. I will handle them a lot though.

:p Thanks! They would be beautiful babies. I have a feeling Rigby is pied as well... he's got a yellow dot on his wing and a yellow necklace around his neck. And some of his tailfeathers have a yellow side and a white side.

I'm in the process of getting a nest box. Possibly tomorrow I will go to a petstore and pick out a nest box. I'm so excited :D I really want to see their babies.

I sure will. ;) They are still in the bonding stage, but they will eat side by side and will sit on the same perch together sometimes. I think I'm going to buy a spiral notebook for them and write down in that and copy what I write and start a thread here.
