I don't know how old she is, but she sure is cute!

Probably less than 3 months because she still seems to be getting feathers. She might even be younger than 2 months. Are you hand feeding her with a syringe?

I'd say around the 7-8 week mark as well. I take it you have had 'her' DNA tested already to know her sex?

The photo is 2 weeks ago! The day i took her from the breeder! I asked for female DNA sexed because i have a male! :) I feed her 3 times a day but she eats a lot! At least 20ml, but now after 2 weeks she eats less....about 10-15ml! So she was at least 5 weeks right? The breeder didn't know how old she was! 5-6 weeks probably! Now she must be between 7-8 weeks maybe more, am i right? Is it time to cut the "launch time"? She can break some seeds as i saw but not the sunflower yet! And something else.....can i give her only pellets? Thanks a lot! :)
