    I made the two hour road trip today to get another RBC. [​IMG] I already had one, Rosalie, is about a year old. The one we got today appears to be a male ( not that it matters ) and re-named him Emmett.
    He's not in the best of shape as the cage they had was much too small for a bird that size and they had severely clipped both wings plus they had a very hyper dog that was allowed to jump on the cage. SO he will need some TLC but he was another great CL's find.

    I'll post pics as soon as he looks better. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I also wish you luck. I have a male (received as a female at lestthat is what was told)
    Hyper and VERY moody.
    I never know on what morning and what day the mood will be.
    I am sure you know this , but they love to forage.
    So plenty of chew items.
    Would love to some pictures.
