babies

So now how about an update on the babies?

I cannot believe how fast they grow! They still do not have any hair..oops.. feathers on their heads but the fuzz is starting to show.

For the past week I have been watching them test out their little wings, hopping from one perch to another. Slowly but surely they have learned how to fly. Another thing that has been fun is seeing them try food. They pick it up and drop then they pick it up again. It is so funny when they actually manage to swallow a piece of food. They start craning their head around, bobbing up and down, then with a final shake of their heads they reach for another piece.  When their crops are empty, Mama and daddy come to the rescue and start craming food down their throats. They will perch on my finger now although it takes a litle bit of coaxing to get them to climb on. Whenever I bring one outside the cage Chip insists on coming out too. He is very protective of his babies. Today I had Bebe out, he is the pied male baby, and CeCe came out the door and started flying aroung the room! Well that got Peaches upset and she started hollaring and flying, which got Chip flying. At that monent Bebe took off! So now the wholle family is flying around the room and everyone is in a panic. Mama and daddy want their little ones back home, Pat is afraid that a cat will get the babies(none were in the house) and Brook is jumping up and down squealing. These babies can FLY!!! They can almost hover like a butterfly or a hummingbird! Not once did they fly into a wall! can't say that about their mama! Smack into a wall she went. I guess she was trying to guide the babies home. So that was my excitement for the weekend.

  2. Awww, how cute. At first one looked bigger than the other one but it looks as if they are about the same size now. Hope mama doesn't run into the wall and cause some damage to herself. Guess not having head feathers doesn't matter about flying.LOL. Helen

  5. Sweet, but funny looking!  Birds are one animal we have never had as a pet, so I guess you  could say this is a learning experience for me.  ;)  -  Barbara
