I will simply move this thread over to New Arrivals and you can continue posting in the same thread there.

If you would like the title of the thread changed when she arrives home, simply send me a Private Message with the new title you'd like and the link to this thread and I will take care of it for you.

Thank you for moving the thread. I have some new pictures, our baby is still not ready to come home yet. The breeder thinks it will be next weekend. She does not like to rush babies home if it can be avoided. Update on names, if it turns out to be a girl, our daughter has chosen "Elsa" and if it is a boy "HeyHey" from Moana. Sorry for the picture angles, it's hard to take pictures of an active budgie with only one hand.

Your budgie baby is a beautiful little girl!

So, Elsa it is She is stunning and does rather resemble the Ice Queen herself!

It's great to hear that the breeder is conscientious about ensuring her babies go home at the right age! 8 weeks or after is the best time for babies to go home

Elsa is absolutely precious!!

I'm so glad your breeder is responsible and keeps the babies until they are fully weaned and eating on their own for a full two weeks to help prevent regression.
That's excellent!!

Well after what seems like forever, our baby has come home. I picked here up today. She was literally the last bird to wean. The breeder decided that she was continuing to beg just for comfort, so she decided to completely withhold feeding and she called this morning to tell me that Elsa was eating millet and seed mix with pellets with no problems. She has already established a play circuit; climb the ladder, run across the grapevine perch, swing the swing, crawl up the bell toy, fly down to the bottom of the cage, eat some seed mix and millet, then start the process all over again.

Elsa sounds delightful!

We'll be looking forward to seeing some updated pictures of your new little darling once she's all settled into her new home.

Okay, a lot has happened in the last week. Elsa took so long to come home because she was biting demanding to be fed at least that is what the breeder thought. A week later she was still biting and getting worse, all the while she was eating great. She mastered "up" to come out of the cage for me only. As soon as she came out she would latch on to our hands like she was trying to tear our hands apart. At one point my oldest daughter was holding her and our 3 year old walked over to pet her. She latched on to the three year old drawing blood.
I spoke to the breeder about her behavior and we both decided that we should probably trade her out for a more docile male that hatched right after her. Budgies live long enough that its still a commitment and I would hate for both my kids to be terrified of her. So today after some tears from our oldest daughter, Elsa returned to the breeder and we came home with the most affectionate cuddle bug we've ever met. Continuing her Frozen theme, my oldest has named him Olaf. I really felt bad to take her back but I feel it was for the best. When we got to the breeder and she pulled Elsa out of the travel cage, she immediately tore into the breeder. The breeder said she will be keeping her and introducing her into one of her flight cages after quarantine.

Here is Olaf.

You definitely made the right decision under the circumstances.

Olaf is just as cute as a little button!!

I love his sweet little face -- he looks like he's smiling in the first picture.

Congratulations on your new baby boy!!
