Yesterday we went to go pick up another fantastic Freecycle find. This time it was a new pet for our family – a female cockatiel. I was very surprised to see an offer like that on Freecycle because the birds usually cost around $100 each. Stephen had two when he was in high school that he raised from babies, and has often mentioned how he would like to get more some day. Because they’re so expensive, we just figured it would be a long time.
I replied to the offer, but really didn’t expect to be able to get the bird. It was a surprise when we received an email saying we could have her. And even better – we were getting her cage and food and everything!
Little man is completely enamored with her. He calls her “Birdie Girl,” but we haven’t named her yet. She is very friendly and loves to be out of her cage and to be handled – she even tolerates Little man handling her. We got a good bird for our family, that’s for sure! Now we just need a name for her. . .
Here’s a picture I took this morning of the two of them.
