Today was the big day. And I took others advice and feel like he "we think" picked me. He is so outgoing and such an attention hound. Absolutely love his personality! So I figured I'd post some pics while hes napping. Now to give our new fid a proper name!

So exciting!!! There's nothing like the feeling of bringing home a new bird :lol:

No name suggestions yet, but to make it easier in the long run, is he a confirmed cock? That would narrow down your choices

Haha...that's my sons new fish Optimus Prime, he just bought it with his allowance money. I'm not sure abut his wings, my son and husband are always in and out. Kind of makes me nevous. What do you do? Nope its no confirmed, just her best guess. I'm making a list of names, probably give it a few day so I can find one that fits. :)

AWWW Lovely! I wish you many years of love and cuddles together! :love:
The third photo reminds me so much of the first photo with my boy (although I thought he was a girl back then, hence the name "Emily").

Even if they don't want to fly away, there is a possibility of being startled and taking off, or any number of accidental ways they can get out. Always best to be overly cautious to be on the safe side, especially with a new fid, when you don't know how they react to things.

I agree. Actually, Brandon, didn't you say that exactly this happened to Loki? (She was startled by noise and escaped for a night?)

Yes she did.I know they can get startled I said if they wanna live with you they wouldnt wanna fly away but of course if they get startled they will its.I use the word almost everyday so I know when people ask me is that leash incase they fly away and I say no its for if they get scared and fly off because I know they wouldnt actually wanna fly.

That's not exactly the best advise, caution should ALWAYS be taken!! Didn't you just lose one of your a few weeks ago?? A bird can easily be spooked and fly out.

Aww, thanks guys. I think he's pretty cute myself. Hahaha....you're right Crow, he does look like an evil villain. Lol, makes me love him even more! Right now the only place he wants to be is on my shoulder, and thats just fine with me. As far as his wings go, we will cross that bridge when we get there. Most likely I'll stand on the side of caution and have them done. But for now im just enjoying getting to know him. Thank everyone for you imput. :)
