When you turned 6 months old...

You were very active - always on the go, go, GO!

You also lost some of the orange feathers on your head, resulting in a "splotchy" looking forehead - after all, must make way for those adult feathers! Talking about those adult feathers, you had quite a few pin feathers growing on your head which made it very itchy and therefore, you demanded quite a few more head scritches!

And you also had those pin feathers on your legs - and a few of them I'm hopeful by their orange tint will grow into those beautiful coral leg warmers that are typical of Cape parrots.

One tiny orange feather showing on your right ankle (there were actually two orange feathers at this time, but I couldn't photograph both)

Quite a few orange looking feathers on the left ankle!

Happy 6 months to you Léa!

She is so beautiful :) I hope you both enjoy revisiting her babyhood when she's older.

Beautiful as always! Her pretty leg warmers will be in just in time for winter!

Do the feathers coming in on her leg irritate her?

@Tamara & Nikki - Thanks!

@HungryBird - she doesn't seem to mind too much.
