    Some bad news about my baby tiel (but not too bad)

    It's a girl. If you don't know what I'm talking about read these threads. First thread second thread

    Anyway, I called for the results of the DNA test today and the girl said the tiel is a female. I told my brother and cousin when I got home from work because they ask me everyday. After I told them I had to leave and buy Sylvia and Harley some food since we ran out this morning. When my mom got home from work my bro and cuz must have told her because the first thing she said to me with a frown was, "It's a girl, huh?" She then asked me what I was going to do. Well, I thought it was pretty cut and dry. Apparently, I was wrong. She said she knew I really liked her and it was ok with her to get the female and try to find another male for Danny My mom said the only obstacle would be my dad. So I guess the baby in the pics is MINE! Now I have to pick girl names, after I agonized over the male names

    Well I can't say that's *bad* news. You will now get two new tiels instead of one!! Two new tiels to love. What can be better than that?

    This way, Alex can have a friend without you having to worry about them mating, and Danny can have his own boy tiel friend.

    Good luck, and keep us updated! I can't wait to see pics of your new baby tiel!

    Ps. How's Alex doing now?

    Alex is doing great! I'm so happy for her. She seems 100% back to normal. I'm still a worried mommy though; I know egg binding can happen again pretty quickly. Alex is eating all kinds of new foods too. Her favorite is cooked green beans, but we are working on everything else too.

    I'm such a softy! I kept telling myself that if the baby was a girl I wasn't taking her. When I found out I was really upset, but that changed pretty quickly. My mom just assumed I was taking her anyway. I have really great parents

    I found some male tiels on petfinder, but they are in Madison, WI, which is about 2 hours from my house. I don't know if they will adopt that far away. It's defiantly worth a call My very opinionated boyfriend is going to think I'm nuts and roll his eyes at me, but I don't care!

    I just called the shelter. They will adopt to me and they have a lot of cockatiels! Now I have to talk to the bird person over there, but she is at lunch right now. After that it's a matter of taking the drive and oh yeah, talking my dad into it He's a softy like me, it shouldn't be a problem

    Is four tiels too many? My mom's theory is that I have to have two cages anyway, so Alex and Danny should have cagemates. I like the way ya think mom!

    I really considered it, but round trip that would be a lot of hours on the road. I wish my brother still worked for the airlines, I would take one in a second. You won't have any problems finding homes for the babies.

    The baby is a girl. The one I'm getting tomorrow is going to be a boy. I know it's confusing. I have Alex a 7 year old female, Danny is a male and I don't know how old he his, the baby is too young to come home and is a female, and tomorrow I'm going to adopt a boy. Itís hard for me to keep straight; I donít expect everyone else to. Thanks for the suggestions though
