Anyway the breeding pair I gave away had a clutch (litter for birds) and I was going to get one but they all died! Then they had five more and I finally got one. Got it on Easter. At first I was worried because it is really small and shouldn't be seperated from its parents yet... but this is the stage they started dying last time. And since I have experience with birds I thought I would give it a try. When I got it home it was really hungry and I was able to syringe feed it baby bird formula very easily. He seems strong and alert and I am more confident now that everything will be fine. I have a little set up to keep him warm and a schedule for his feedings. He should have all his feathers and start eating on his own in about two weeks.
I already like him a lot. I think he's gonna make a great pet.
If any of you know about lovebirds they can be pretty awesome companions (they are the smallest parrots)when hand tamed from youth...
I haven't named him yet. I might call him RJ for Rayne Jr. (Daddy's name is Rayne) but still undecided.
Thanks for letting me share.
Edit: and they are supposed to look like that, he just doesn't have all his feathers yet. I will post another one when he gets them all so you can see the difference.
