My new baby :)
« on: May 21, 2015, 08:42:22 AM »

Hello everyone, I went to visit my baby grey yesterday for the first time. He/She is 8 weeks old and I get to pick him/her up in a few weeks! I'm so excited, I think he's a boy (I don't know why) but anyway here he is



The one on the right :)
Hoping these few weeks fly by as I can't wait to share some stories and pictures with you all!

Haha I think they could well be brothers or sisters!  :yahoo:

I'm not sure, the breeder also says he's a boy, he seemed to know what he was looking for to identify the sex so that's good enough for me  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Is it the one on the right as we are looking at the picture?

The only true way to know the sex is a DNA, however if you're not bothered, i wouldn't worry about it. I got mine DNA'd and i wish i'd not cos i completely ignored the results anyway :D

Yes kaz, I saw her first at a few days old, I was actually getting a timneh from same breeder but there was a problem with it weaning it just didn't want to eat by its self so the breeder kept putting the date back and the timneh got to around 16 weeks and still wasn't right so he told me that he wasn't prepared to sell me the baby and would keep it himself and let me choose another so I picked gizzy and watched her grow till she was ready to come home with me :) best decision ever!

Yep becky he thought gizmo was male because she was big and chunky but turned out female lol

No I didn't get pic updates apart from one or two but I did go to his house quite a few times to visit her before she was ready he was probably glad to see the back of me  by then haha

Aww I'd really love to go and visit my baby a few times but it's a good 1 1/2 drive there and same again back, plus I can't drive so would have to wait for my boyfriend to get home from work at 4pm so wouldn't have time. Might ask him for some pictures though :)
