More to Come!

off

I am very excited about my plans to GROW my aviary, again!  I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of a pair of Quaker Parakeets in early 2015!  Of course, I simply HAVE TO have one as a pet, as well, so there are three more birds to come.  Oh, did I mention they will be […]

Just Weaned!

This is the time my heart begins to break.  My July Linnie chicks are eating and drinking well all on their own, as their feathers continue to unfurl.  My husband, daughter, and I handle all of them, several times each day, so they become accustomed to different people and voices.  They endure many, many kisses! […]

It’s a Boy!

I have the DNA gender test results for the first round of 2014 Linnies… five males and one female!  Lutino is a sex-linked gene, so I knew she was going to be a she, but I am surprised the other five chicks all are boys!  The Lutino gal and a Marine boy are staying here […]

Baby Budgies are here, again!

I am thrilled with my new round of chicks!  There are lots of peeps and cheeps in the bird room.  I was totally surprised to see an Albino budgie; very cool! Diane and Dawson are newby parents and very proud of their babies.  She is a cinnamon-green and he is turquoise, so the chicks should […]

Her siblings are blue combinations of cobalt and marine, with more feathers opening by the minute!  The […]

Linnies have Hatched!

off

Linnie chicks have arrived!  There are three healthy babies in two separate clutches.  I am so thrilled and relieved!  Everybirdy is growing rapidly and appear to be well fed by their parents.  I can hear the raspy tweets coming from the nestboxes; they sound so different from the demanding “peep peep peep peep…!” of baby […]

Heartbreak

Hand-feeding baby birds is an amazing thrill!  Their fragility is unimaginable.  Watching them grow each day and seeing the colours develop as feathers unfurl is so much fun! Things get tricky, though, when chicks decide they want to eat on their own… then don’t.  Enter, Houdini.  This little guy has been my big challenge with […]

Lola!

off

The beautiful blue baby on my Homepage went home today, with her new family!  They named her Lola!  She will have a wonderful time watching her growing household.  My greatest joy is matching up the “right” bird with the right owner.  The more information a customer provides to me, the better I can connect chicks […]

Wing Trimming?

off

I am often asked about clipping or trimming birds’ wings. Personally speaking, I support this practice. All my pet parrots have their wings trimmed, for safety. Birds are fast flyers, and small budgies can whip around a room at a very surprising speed! Windows and mirrors are like magnets, and untrimmed birds have been known to slam into them, in […]
