Hello, new member here !
« on: January 05, 2015, 08:11:23 PM »
Hello everyone,

I have just added a new girl to my family.  She's a 4 year old blue headed Pionus Menstruus menstruus (I think !).

She has been with us 3 days and has already settled in.  In fact she adapted really quick, it seems she has always been here !

She is the perfect girl for now, although she is hormonal, but hey, noone is truly perfect !  I must say I am very impressed by her personality ; so gentle, independent yet interested in humans, playful, but not too much, and soooo pretty !  Her little sounds are so harmonious too !  Even her love cry sounds like a little guinea pig call...

I'm glad I found this site, I will have questions for you soon !

Thanks for including me in your group !

 :schild27: Tell us more, like any other birds in the house? I for one am always interested in what other pi's eat, what they like for toys, and so forth.  I struggle with my Maxi wanting people food and being very active, but love him and would always want another!

Welcome! She sounds like such a sweetie. How wonderful for you to provide a pionus a new home. They are great birds

She's the only bird in the house. We also have a small Chihuahua.

For now she's eating a homemade mix of healthy seeds, a bit of pellets, sprouts, and some veggies and fruits. She's not too   keen on fresh foods, so I am trying to change that. She gets 1 almond a day and healthy table foods in tiny amounts.
