    Hi Barbara, Mine were hatched around the end of October (the breeder never really gave me the hatch date) And I was able to take them home at the end of December...So, mine were around two months old I'd say. They are now approaching 6 months. One of them "talks" all the time, and tries to whistle too. He calls me "Baby" When I leave the room he'll say "Baby, baby, come here.." You will so enjoy your birds! This is a great type of little parrot. When do you think yours will be ready? What colors? My "talking one is turquoise. talk later.....

    I understand they were hatching in March but have not heard back or got the call yet. I am going to get two also, both boys....I would have thought they would have been ready to go by now. Just wondered how old yours were when they were weaned. Looking forward to getting them. Glad yours are doing so good. They are beautiful!! Thank you

    Glad you have them. Just too cute for words. Suggest you remove the sleep hut because over time they will invest the fuzz and it blocks the crop. There are many alternatives.

    Hi Barbara, Sorry it took so long to get back to you. Was sick for awhile, much better now. I know the last few weeks are so very hard to wait. A really good breeder will not sell the babies til they are really eating well on their own. I remember my seller telling me she'd send pictures too, but I never got any either. And you are like on pins and needles so anxious to see your new babies...that's how I felt back then. Did you pay a DEPOSITE??? I hope so, as that will ensure you they are coming to you. Let me know about that. Also, do you know anyone who has bought from her/him before?

    Hi Dianne, Yes, I got rid of the hut right away when you sent me the story of the linnie ingesting fibers and almost dying. I threw it away that day...months ago. Thanks for the warning! :)

    Hi Barbara, I just wrote back and then tried to undo something and I think what I wrote to you disappeared...I'll write again. It is so very hard to wait the last few weeks, but a good seller will not send them off til they are eating really well on their own. My seller promiced me pictures too which I never got, but it was Christmas and she was most likely crazy busy. But I remember how bad I wanted to see my "babies" Oh, it was so hard to wait! Did you give the seller a Deposite???? That will most likely assure you they are coming to you...also do you know anyone who has bought from her/him before?Mine were hatched around Oct.31st. and were ready to come to me Dec. 28th. However each bird is an individual and some take longer to wean then others, that's what the seller told me. I'm sitting on the fence with you girl, "I feel your pain" hahahaha!!Hope you get a call soon! :)
