Could you provide us with more clearer pictures; preferably where we could see her head from the bird's eye view?

You're correct. The measurements in millimeters he gave need to be checked.

Sorry I forgot to post the pics :D but look she already has 2 eggs, and I have only had her for only 3 days. I tried looking her up on antweb.org but I couldnt find one that matched.
