Chili 🌶️ visiting @centrovetpanama for the first time! He is having conversations with all the birdies here hahah
UPDATES:
The vet check up went great. He is a healthy boy!
On Thursday I will bring him to get his beak trimmed.
MEETING LUCKY:
For this week, they will be living in separate cages right next to each other. We want the introduction to go smoothly and don’t want any territorial issues ....so.... they will not be using #LuckysRetreat just yet!
Next week they will be in actual contact for the first time and then we will decide when it’s time for them to share a space. After that, when Lucky is finally ready, they will both move to #LuckysRetreat
SO FAR SO GOOD:
They are both talking and getting to know each other and its great! Im so happy!

Meet Chili 🌶️
He was born and raised at a friends house, who gave him to me as a gift. Chili lived with a couple other birds, but he was pushed aside a lot – I guess birds can also be bullies!
Poor guy, he was such a #thirdwheeler 😓
My friend knew my case and decided to offer me to keep Chili so that he could be Lucky’s companion.
A couple months ago I visited Chili and fell in love!! (So so tough not sharing that night with you guys LOL)
All in all, I hope you all welcome him with tons of love!!
• male • born March 2014

I think they loved each other ✨
I will be taking Chili for a checkup tomorrow - our vet wants to meet him. We will then decide when is the right time to put them both in the same cage. We have to make sure that Lucky is 100% recovered!

SURPRISE - First encounter ✨
You’ve all been begging me to get Lucky a companion!
The truth is, for a few months now we’ve had Chili as an option, but we were waiting for Lucky to be ready, out of surgery and recovered. Well, the time has come!!!
Welcome home baby Chili!
#LuckyAndChili #BlueHeadedPionus #JendayConure
Oh yeah ...Chili is a BOY

Learn more about Chili in the next post!

#LuckysRetreat ✨ in the making!
Today he visited his retreat for the first time, I can’t begin to explain the feeling I got. He was SOOO happy.
While I was placing sticks and trunks around, he was playing and getting to know his space. It was perfect.
_
I am terrified of him falling off and hurting himself so I will be placing a ton of sticks and trunks around so that he can move around easily.
💡Any ideas are welcome!
_
Because he can’t move in yet (still in recovery), I have all the time in the world to fill it up decorate it.
😂🤷🏼‍♀️ To be honest, I feel that I am decorating a room for my first child. That is my level of excitement. #CrazyBirdLady

Imposible is nothing 🤹🏼‍♀️

#LuckysRetreat is almost ready 🔩🛠️ ...After hours of hard work!!! I’m so proud and happy.
Now its time to make it pretty 😜
Next week we will move it to the backyard, under the mango tree (check my story)

💙 One of the best things that happened to me in my life. Miss you every day. I love you.

Gracias por poner a Lucky en mi camino / Thanks for bringing Lucky into my life [I know it was you] and for teaching me that #DifferentIsBeautiful

It’s confirmed. DNA guys lost the test/results 😒🙄 we will have to repeat it. I will go to the vet tomorrow and keep you all posted. They will try to expedite the results. #great

Rhea The Naked Birdie† (@rhea_thenakedbirdie)

#checkup after surgery. Stitches are out and he is recovering smoothly!!!
_
WHAT NOW?
The vet wants to see him in 5 days for another checkup. He sent Lucky home with a healing spray for the wound.
_
MALE or FEMALE?
😒 The lab “lost” the results...yep, we are pissed, so we are waiting to see if they find them today. If not, we will be repeating the DNA test.

#BirdHuffing 😅🙌🏻 So, yesterday I learned that #SmellingBirds it’s a thing and we all love it!
After posting this story yesterday, I received countless messages of you guys telling me that I am definitely not alone! Hahah
I guess I am not the only crazy #BirdLady after all. Thoughts? #birdsmell

Rhea The Naked Birdie† (@rhea_thenakedbirdie)

In preparation for the arrival of #LuckysRetreat 🏠...Lucky was trying out the tree trunk I found!! #approved
Shoutout to @debohya who came up with this cool name!!!

I’m always adding new kinds of food so that he expands his pallet.
Today I added a BIT of rice 🍚 and it was OK haha not his fav! Walnuts were yummier I guess!
His diet consists of 80% pellets, fruits & veggies and 20% seeds and nuts
_
Foods he 💕: orange, papaya, banana, baked sweet plantain, grapes, baked sweet potato, dried papaya, seeds, nuts, carrots, dried coconut, and more!
_
Foods he is 🤷🏼‍♀️ with: pellets (he eats them, but doesn’t go crazy over them)
_
Foods he 🚫: apples, kiwi, rice (apparently)
_____
Every single morning I offer him fresh fruits and veggies! (As well as pellets)
•••
FYI - his current diet and the fact that he is so accepting of so many kinds of food is a MIRACLE. When I rescued him, he would only eat sunflowers!!

Rhea The Naked Birdie† (@rhea_thenakedbirdie)

It’s safe to say that he is not a fan of loud noises 😂 >> rain, thunder and vacuum cleaner! #soundON #loudLucky
