    The babies have names!

    I know most of you liked the rhyming names or the triplet style names or the characters names but I really wanted them to have individual names, unique names, not common names. I hope you all agree the names are good choices for them. Thank you all for being part of this adventure. We will probably do it again so in time, more names will get used from all the suggestions that were given. 


    They are all good babies and as you can see, they are already learning tricks (sort of) I was able to get 2 of them to lay on their back so I could get underside shots. Pez is all white underneath so I didn't think I needed a shot of his underside. 


    Why I chose the names that I did...


    Pez, because as suggested, Pez is sweet, like the pez candy.  Pez really is a gentle bird. He/she is shy which makes him/her a sweet bird. 


    Dazzle because he/she  dazzles with the splash of turquoise color. In the sunlight it really shines and stands out.


    Cosmo is actually cosmos without the s. I just thought Cosmo looked better as a name. I chose this because I think he/she has the colors of the cosmos.  Cosmo also has a pretty unique feature and that is the black beak. I've not seen many parakeets with a black beak.

    Colleen, are you going to teach them to talk?

    Probably not. I have conures who talk. That's enough chatter I think, lol They might even pick up some words from the conures.

    Pythonlover has told me that I need to change Cosmo's name to Cozmo so there is a Z in his name too. What do you think? Agree or disagree?

    That could be just a little awkward but Colleen will probably try to think of something so that EVERYONE is happy! (sure):)

    They are beautiful! I've never seen such colors! The names are great too! I'm glad all of us got to add input for their names! Thanks!

    Colleen

    Yes, that stubble was to protect the feathers as they matured. Mom or dad or both chew it away when the feathers are ready.

    Are you sure you're not just being biased for the akaQA birdies? ;)

    The young Budgies look healthy and brilliant, well done, the names well, thats another matter, but they are yours birds , that all that counts. --- beautifil coloured birds much better than the all green wild cousins.

    doolittle

    I think LLB is a great name! LLB and Little Doo!!!!
    bulletman

    Little Doo i think Colleen may disagree having her birds called after our alternative names. lol.

    When I went in to uncover the birds this morning, the babies were no longer in the box. They had all climbed up to the perch to be with their momma and daddy.  They're big kids now : )

    The mother laid and egg today. She's started a new clutch. Looks like new ones are coming. :)

    I know some kids write and use such good vocabulary and some just dont know how to write inside when they are 18 sorry if it hurt youre feelings or anything and nice name for them actually.

    No, my feelings were not hurt at all. Everyone has their own opinions. The names came from a list of names that were suggested by the members here. The babies have been a community effort for the forum. Everyone has been involved since they hatched. Can you please use the "comment this" link when replying to a person instead of using the "add new answer" box? This way the conversation stays together in one stream. Thanks .

    Colleen: No problem. It wasn't a big thing anyway ;) Your kid has a good vocabulary to be able to use words like "theory" in place of a more simplistic word such as idea. He/she must do well in school. You should see how some of the kids type here. Makes your brain hurt trying to decipher what they say. Edit this comment Delete comment

    Your manner of speaking and also the fact that you can not follow instructions. Again, please use the "comment this" link attached to the original comment, rather than using the "add new answer" box to comment back to a person. Thanks.

    Elz your style of replying comes across as that of a child,then you go into adult mode,your adult manner is more mature,keep it that way.

    Absolutely gorgeous birds!  Love the names, also.
