The baby arrived yesterday at 10.30pm

We cleaned up the food stains in her nostrils and on her body.

Hi there HCL and everyone else from MBF. I"m new here, just got back to Malaysia after leaving the country for quite a few years for Uni. I had a Congo, but he died from illness. I've been looking ever since for a new companion, and that chick you have looks gorgeous. Might I ask, where I might be able to get one, and the costs/procedures involved.

Thanks!

The chick is not mine. I am bird sitting for someone. The owner has gone oversea.

Why don't you do a search or post at The Flea Market?
A CAG chick usually cost in between 2K and 2.5K. Currently you need to declare your bird at Perhilitan. I am not sure of the procedures for new birds now.
Maybe someone here can give a detail explanation. :)
