So gorgeous! How big are Rosellas? Do you get them from a pet store/bird shop or do you have to go to a specialized breeder?
They are not much bigger than a Cockatiel. Rikki is 110g. Looks about one third larger.
Here in New Zealand they are Aussy invaders and D.O.C. want them gone.
You can get a Eastern Rosella from $30 upwards. i did see a breeding pair for $125nz
You need to read about them, as they have a stink reputation for being hard to keep tame!
I would think that Rikki's owner spent a lot of time with her, to get her like she is.
I find it frustrating that we we find very few owners for the birds that come in to the rescue.
But am glad I can make a difference for some of them.
So Rikki did not cost me a bean. I think they are stunning as far as colours go, I always loved them, just stayed away from them due to the bad rap sheet.
When Lyn said Rikki would have to go into an avairy or be rehomed, because she stalked and attack anyone she got a chance to.
She does bite, just not me!

Clawnz, so good to hear she's coming around! Did you get the egg situation figured out?
