I know it has been awhile. I’ve been rather busy with babies to feed, my job, and school work. But there is news from the bird room!
The Parrotlet’s baby is doing great, it is a little green boy which I have named Froggie since he was born on Leap Day. He is still available for deposit.
The Parrotlets are back on 3 fertile eggs, hopefully they will all hatch this time and we will get at least one American Yellow. They are due to hatch in about 1 week or so.
The Lovebirds are feeling spring fever right now.
I am handfeeding 3 babies from Freya and Loki and apparently they heard my call for green pieds, but forgot the “pied” part! They had 2 normal green males, 1 is a Medium Green Violet and the other is a Normal Green (no dark factors, no Violet factors). The 3rd baby is a Seagreen American Cinnamon Violet female. I am also handfeeding the first baby from Yin and Seible, he is a Normal Green, though he may have a violet or dark factor.
Rowan and Fletcher are back on eggs, 2 are looking fertile, but again, I don’t know if they will hatch. I do hope they do.
Isis and Osiris are on 2 fertile eggs. These babies are always so beautiful, but Isis and Osiris seem to have a hard time hatching them and keeping them alive. I am hoping that is because they are young and that maybe this time they will be just fine.
My rescues, Sunny and Marvin look to have one fertile egg, and I will be leaving it with them this time.
The Caiques, Dweezel and Zorro are back on eggs as well. I took their box down and moved them into a different cage, but I saw Zorro with an “egg-bum” (about to lay an egg) so I gave her back the box so she didn’t become egg-bound. This time they have 5 eggs and are much more aggressive.
