You'd think six parrots were enough? I sure did. But the seventh one arrived today.
Following the death of our male parakeet - Kozi - we decided to buy another parakeet, so the widowed Lilu would have company. The breeder we chose sold parrots in pairs, so we took two. I did mention that. However, my mom says Lilu is still lonely and doesn't seem to be socializing much with the two new parakeets. Thus she decided we need yet another male. We ordered him by mail and he's with us already. We are keeping him in a seperate cage for now, but the other parrots can see him. All the parakeets have taken a vivid interest in the new guy. One of the two parakeets we bought previously might even have fallen in love with him (she never really did seem to be in love with the male she was sold with, despite what the breeder claimed - these two are nothing like Kozi and Lilu were).
The new male is our 7th parrot (exclusing the deceased ones), arrived on the 27th of January and is 7 months old. Thus we're calling him Seven. Or Seven Up XD (I suggested Septimus, but that won't work ^_^).
Also, since I never mentioned that: the previously bought parakeets are named Spider and Fiona. spider, since he loves walking on the ceiling (is yellow with green dots). Fiona, because she is green (with yellow dots) - though more often than not we call her "The green one" - which now has to change, since Seven is green with yellow markings, like she is, only with more yellow.
BTW We have yet to tell my dad XD
