It is! I want to bring home the regent so bad, I already have a name I am thinking off and cleaned out the cage today But I Will only get him if the other people decide not to adopt him.. So I think my chances have slimmed quite a bit with him.This is getting crazy! lol
Ooh you are amazing with words! That is exactly how I feel For the regent I am ready to go get him tomorrow if they let me adopt him, but for the lovie, I have set a time schedule for myself of at least two weeks to think it over. I am in love with my babies already of Course, any additional baby would be another treasure but my flock is also amazing as isSince you already have a strong feeling about the regent, wait to find out about him first. A different species may be less likely to upset the Henkie-Fëanor balance than a female lovie despite her age.
If the other people do adopt him, then go meet the little lovie to see how you feel. There is a slim chance you may not feel a connection despite her adorable Peanut-ness. That would only mean your next bird is still on its way to you. (Universe, remember?) And if you do get the lovie, whether or not she can see or fly won't make one bit of difference. She and you can easily work around any obstacles together.
Oh well pretending doesn’t work here We are all afflicted so we see right through the disguise I am keeping myself to the two week schedule for the lovie though! Marked the days already as I don’t want to make a hasty decisionYou do. You just don't know which one yet!
That's the part that tugs my heart the most. If after you get her you realize she can't perch for some reason, that's different & you'll give her so many other options. At least they gave her a towel to stand on. They may not be as knowledgeable about avian enrichment as you, but it's nice to see that they do care.The lady I talked to Said she has not even perched from what they saw.
Exactly She Said she had been sitting in ther corner for weeks, not even perched and I was ready to jump on the earliest train to go and get her. Poor sweet baby, I don’t think I can even refuse her still and in my heart I have basically adopted her already I know what cage I Will likely get her, Nice platform perches with fleece, o so Many ideas for this little girl to make her happy I know her age actually as she has a leg band, she was hatched in 2012 which makes her around 6 years old. Same ahw as Henkie!That's the part that tugs my heart the most. If after you get her you realize she can't perch for some reason, that's different & you'll give her so many other options.

We both Will!Dang.
I'm going to bite all may fingernails off waiting on the outcome of this one.
I never heard Harley’s whole story! So glad she is not egg laying anymore! How amazing she seems to be seeing better even if it just the energy, that is already promising!Wow, she's not very old to have such bad eyesight. Do they know why?
Harley was about that age when she came to us & we suspect vitamin/mineral deficiencies from her chronic egg laying may be to blame for her poor vision. Her previous owners took out any spot to lay eggs except her bowl and told us to do the same to discourage laying. We didn't know better at the time so we did. She laid egg after egg in her food bowl & they all fell out & cracked so she kept laying to replace them. She was almost egg-bound. I ended up pulling out a (clean) rat hammock we'd had in storage & hung that in her cage and we ordered a breeder supplement to sprinkle on her food. She laid a few more eggs in the hammock and sat on them for several weeks. We were so relieved that she'd finally stopped laying. Thanks to the supplement and letting her sit on her eggs, she stands up straighter like a healthy green cheek and I swear she can see a little better, or is at least has the energy to be more reactive to lights.
Oh she still lays! The difference is we swap them out for fakes so none of them ever crack & she gets to sit on them as long as she likes. She's sat on them almost 3 months before! And she's an ornery, protective mommy when she's on them, but it gives her body time to rest and build up more nutrients. Eventually she gets bored & starts moving around the cage more, plays with toys again and wants to come out. We only have our sweet, cuddly girl back for 1-2 weeks before she starts laying again. We might not get much time with her, but she's safe and we don't worry about her anymore.So glad she is not egg laying anymore!
Thank you! I think so too, I am not an expert on the eye rings! I can only tell a personata apart for sure, with the others I can definitly be wrong with all mutations aroundThat is a Fischer's lovebird. Good luck!
