Coming and going.

A couple of our little boy babies went to their new home today! Time flies when it is nasty and raining out all day every day...didn't get to play with them as much as usual, makes goodbye a little easier.

Sadly Cupcake and Twinkie left us too. We aren't sure what happened, I found them both dead in their cage a couple mornings ago. Perhaps a night fright and they zoomed around their cage until they hit something and broke their necks. The girls were so sad, they kept being reminded of things and got sad all over again for days. Today I surprised them with this little beauty when they got home from school. She is a cinnamon whiteface split to pied cockatiel, the girls named her Lakota. They said when she raises her crest she reminds them of an Indian, so we went through different tribe names and settled on Lakota. I had cockatiels as a kid, love them! Lakota is already super super friendly.

She is only 4 months old, so her colors may change a little with her first molt.

Hayden loves her already, Lily is still missing the parakeets...but I have to say Lakota is much more friendly, so I am sure she will come around soon.

She has a much larger cage...we will be adding fun things to it as we go.

The kids spring pics...they turned out pretty cute!
