    LOL OK so I went to go see Charlie an older Moustache parrot ( well he was only 2 but it was older than ones I had considered ) he was nice but a bit stand offish which is to be expected , he would have settled in tho ... and while I was there also met his littler sister who was about 14 weeks ... a little flighty but again just cos I was new ...

    I actually spent nearly 4 hours chatting with the breeder, absolutely terrific guy ... So after meeting with Charlie and his sister , David the breeder took another little one out , this was a lone egg double clutch ( the Moustache pair laid another egg after the previous babies were hatched then removed 2 weeks late for hand raising ) ... and this little one took an absolute shine to me ... within a minute he/she was up my arm onto my shoulder nibbling my beard and ears and making content noises ... its DNA is in but not due back til the end of the week or so will know then if is a boy or girl ... breeder thinks boy , I think girl .. lets see whos right


    Anyway I decided on a unisex name ... Tuco ... or for those old enough to remember George of the Jungle cartoons



    ( Tookie Tookie for short ? long? more informal moments

    anyhow here is Tuco older sister on Davids Arm ( but they look pretty identical lol )


    Here is what she.he will grow into



    Black beak at sexual maturity = female .... orange beak= male But with DNA we find out quicker than waiting 2-3 years lol

    Settling in well ... he/she is still on 1 morning hand feed of baby mix plus browsing the rest of the day ...

    Tuco took the travel well too which was a big ask of a really young bird ...

    Tuco is a great name and what a great name for a bird .... Still reminds me of art from the 1930s but

    Glad you got Tuco ... its really nice news for this afternoon and I think for your birthday ....

    Congratulations to you both - may you both have many happy years ahead together

    Beautiful FM...! Tooka my galah saw the pic on the screen and approved lol (my ear is still ringing)

    I've just started giving Tooka sprouted seeds for the last week, he goes crazy for them and they have put an extra sparkle in his eye's. Only takes a couple of days to get the seeds to sprout and they are really good for birds.
    Just have to make sure you soak em in Aviclens water cleanser (Chlorhexidine) to stop any nasties during the sprouting, and it's at it's most nutritional stage when the seeds just start to sprout. Link below if anyone is interested....

    I'll have to get some of those to try, I'm using wheat, sunflower, barley, oats, safflower, mungbean and sorghum.
    Can't believe how much Tooka enjoys it..!
