:( I went to buy some stuff for the babies today at like always, I stoped to look at the parrots. They had two cute female tiels and one male...The male was A SWEETHART! He learned to mimick me in the 5 mins we spend together. I also gave him a head and belly rub which he LOVED! He really didn't want to go back so I was strongly considering taking him home but when I asked they said he's already sold and the person hasn't picked him yet...:(:(:( I sadly had to watch him call after me when I put him back. He was such a sweet little boy!

ohhh Aly how sad :( I bet if he wasn't sold he would have been coming home with you
YES he would have!
I am ready for him, just would have had to buy the cage. It was so sad Laura! I should have never held him. He was such a good mimicker too!!! Learned so fast! I hope he goes to a good home.

He looked more like a normal gray but his grey was VERY light colored and he had these reverse black patches on his wings (like a suit..lol), gorgeous yellow head and nice round bright orange patches! SO SOFT TOO!!!
He was less than a year old. I would say that he just passed six months or so.

Oh man, that's so sad!! :( But your perfect baby will come along sooner or later.
I hope so...it just wasn't meant to be I guess.

its hard for others that don't have the love for birds to get it...lol My daughter and I went to the grocery store tonight and I was picking out parsley, green beans etc and my daughter just looks at me and says Yup Mommy loves her birds...lol it was to cute

Now that i know I have a male and female I am really excited about it looking forward to Ollie gets older it will be interesting to see what he is like

I have no doubt it will be sooner then later....LOL :p

HEHE...knowing me it could be anytime..I tend to do make spur of the moment decisions but it's always worked out so far. I don't want to just pick a day and say, ok today, I'm getting the tiel. I just want to keep going until one really catches my eye. I have a question though.

Do most males like belly rubs? Baby is EXTREMLY tame but doesn't like belly rubs. This one in the store LOVE them and let me scratch his belly before his head...

I am not sure if its because Ollie is young or maybe its a male thing but Ollie lets me rub him everywhere belly , feet, head, back and he absolutely loves when I rub his beak...lol don't ask me why. If I try to rub Georgies belly she nips me...hehe she has never let me rub her belly.

Yeah...I don't know. Baby LOVES head and beak rubs. She lets me do pretty much anything except rub her belly. The only thing she lets me do is kiss her belly.

Yup, anywhere on the face and neck- mine loves it when I do her tiel, the sides of her beak, under her chin, her cheek spots (ears)...spoiled brats..then she thinks trying to pick on my hair is returning the favor...:eek:
