Just as the title says, after much thought and talking it over...

I put a deposit down. We’re going to be welcoming a new feathered face in the house! :swoon:

Before the pics, some backstory:
As some of you guys know, we lost Yuka earlier this month. I truly wasn’t prepared for this experience but over the weeks, the tears have slowed and I can once again remember the joy and love she brought to me these past 6 years. The memories I shared with her are held close in my heart for always.

Mimi and Yuka grew up together. And while they were never quite close, in fact Mimi mostly only tolerated her, just seeing one another brought each other security and comfort especially when I was away, or just during the day.
These weeks have been full of many flock calls and much more anxiety so I had to take into account not only my feelings, but Mimi’s.

And I’ve come to realize my heart is also ready for another. I couldn’t wait to share this with you guys!

One of these little cuties will be coming home at the end of March, possibly beginning of April.
They’re almost 5 weeks old! Turquoise Pineapple. :heart: FABE3A0B-470E-4182-B376-7856CD546AEE.jpeg AC4FE70A-3F01-4578-B420-EB5B598DF56F.jpeg
I did have a question for our Conure mutation experts.

Because Pineapple is a sex-linked mutation, does that guarantee the babies are all female? I’m unaware of any splits but the mother is turquoise and the father turquoise-pineapple.

Love the turks but no idea of pineapple genetics.
Seems its sex linked to be sure you would have to know if male was split to pineapple then there could be a chance of a male pineapple. If not then I think the pineapples would be female. Then again I could be wrong as I seem to have genetic dyslexia. :wacky::hehepink:

I always call @Monica :loveshower:

Sorry read it wrong, now I am seriously in a dyslexic mood.

Male is turk pine & female turk changes it. I think then females would be turk pineapple
but males would not be pineapple so if all 3 are pineapple then that would mean female is what I said was true.

Mother can;t be split to pine so has no pineapple genes to give. A boy would need pineapple from both mother & father to look pineapple. Since mother has no pineapple then boys would not be pineapple.
Yes we need Monica...as my brain is not thinking very clearly today. :airplane:

Thank you! A little menagerie of girlies, gosh they’re too cute. :heart:

They are all so adorable!!! Must be so hard to wait till they're ready!
Right? It was super hard to choose one actually! Almost scooped them all up.. ;)

Some of her siblings had some more feathers in but this little one called to my heart.
I can’t wait to meet her!
