Hi everyone- I'm so excited. I finnally got my tiel #2. I didn't really intend to get one TODAY but it's a rescue. The poor thing got SO beat up by another adult tiel! I took him to the vet and the petstore paid for the visit so that worked out good. He (I think?) is the cutest thing ever! He LOVES head scritches -ran right back under my chin for more- oh I don't even know what to say! I'll give him a bath a little later on (he's really beat up) and then take some pics!!!:)

PS_ I need name suggestions please!

He's napping now but I snuck in some pics. He/she (I hate not knowing) is the cuddliest thing ever! Everytime I have IT perch on my finger IT jumps on my chest and goes under my chin- he's so beat up guys...I gotta tell ya I was real sad to see how much he got beat up.
Apparently they had IT toghether with another gray tiel that pretty much almost killed this baby. The grey was an adult and was there first...I don't know-

The vet had to scrape up a piece from the corner of it's beak that was ripped and had dried blood- It has "cuts" on it's feet, top of it's head, wings, back, the tail feathers look horrible, wings are all uneven and butchered. Told me to bathe it and apply some neosporin just in case. All should be ok though. To make matters worse, the poor thing is going through a molt and has a bunch of pin feathers...

Hopefully, after his nap I can give him a nice bath and clean him (or her) up a bit...Either way it's gorgeous! I am so happy...
(I'm writing this with one hand since Baby is getting head scritches..:p)

What a gorgeous baby. :D Poor little thing getting all beat up, s/he'll look good as new in no time though! I made some suggestions but i don't think they suit now i've seen pics.

Here are some more "hawaiian names" which i think would suit him/her...

Malie - meaning calm
Meli - meaning honey
Kau'i - beauty (pronounced kah ooh ee)
Kalea - bright

I like Meli and Kalea...The problem I'm having is telling the sex. It's so young it still does the purring thing and still has some baby fluff.:) It's all cuddled and sleeping now...I MUST find a name!
