new indian ringneck owner!

Hello everyone! just going to quickly introduce myself, I’m a young girl who over a week ago purchased my first Indian ringneck or more so my father my little baby is about 5-6 months old and is named jasper we believe that she is a girl even though she is obviously too young to tell physically. She has not been done sexed but me and my dad read online that the females have quite big feet and are a bit stockier is this true? if so she fits that quite well also know that she is more comfortable around us she has started to make some noises and I don’t know if it’s just me but her noises sound slightly feminine I watched videos of other irn and the males have slightly more masculine voices and the girls more feminine, I don’t k now if I’m just being silly has anyone else experienced this? So anyways we bought her with her cage that is a pretty decent size (we are planning to buy a bigger one) the cage is definitely fine in size for now though. she was on an all seed diet with fruits and vegetables I immediately began transitioning her to vetafarm nutriblend pellets which as first she was not a fan of and would only eat once her seeds ran out but I started wetting and mushing the pellets as recommended by vetafarm and she really likes them now and has also started to eat them dry in her bowl I’m still giving her the seeds and while continue to do so until she has fully transitioned to the pellets and serve the seeds very few days’ forgot to mention that she was bought already pretty tamed and was happy to be coming onto me the second day after having her she has her days were she is still a bit shy but I’m sure that is normal as were all new to her and it’s a new place oh and one question before I leave! I haven’t seen her drinking any water at all and I’ve had her for over a week now she must be drinking right? She has been having lots of juicy fruit so I guess that’s probably keeping her hydrated enough. Thankyou! I hope to make friends and get advice from other irn owners.
