DNA results are in!

I'm getting a female! Her name is Ozma.


Painting for fun. (Can't wait until I can start painting my actual bird instead of random pineapple green cheeks.)

Congrats!!! i still don’t know the gender of my tiel but he’ll grow into it and i’ll find out soon enough!
I love the painting, is it digital? I also used to paint my bird! it’s so much fun painting birds, their anatomy is so interesting to paint.

Yup, I paint exclusively in Procreate with an Apple Pencil these days. I don’t have the space for traditional supplies. And honestly, over time I think the iPad will turn out cheaper than paints and brushes and canvas.

I got to Zoom meet my Ozma this week! We’ll do it again in a week or two when she starts her flight/recall training with the breeder. She’ll come home probably at the end of April or the first week in May. Here’s a screenshot from the zoom meeting.

Welcome Wings Aviary is FABULOUS! I suggest following the FB page even if you're not in Canada and will never get a bird from her. She posts all sorts of great information and regularly does Ask Me Anything posts.

My baby has to be shipped to me and she even trains the long distance babies to be comfortable with the travel cage and takes them on car rides so they're comfortable traveling before the big day.

man, that’s commitment!! my breeder is “so busy” that they don’t really care too much about the people’s experience. i guess that’s cause i live in a big city though with only 3 breeders in a 2-3 hr driving range; they’re a bit full of themselves honestly lol. but the birds are happy and heathy so the people who work there don’t really matter!

i will follow them! good luck with your (obviously gonna be well behaved) little conure!! <3 they’re the cutest lil conure ever!!
