Our Group of Seven

All of our babies are developing well, and looking cuter every day! As soon as I enter their room (my kitchen) in the morning, all seven race to the glass door of the incubator unit, eager to come and visit with me. How can you possibly have a bad day when their are babies in […]

Everybirdie is Growing!

The two Pearly Conure chicks, and five Lineolated Parakeet chicks, have begun their journey through the hand-feeding process. The chicks are approximately two weeks of age now, and are being fed five times daily by myself. This constant exposure to humans will make them very friendly pets, as all they will ever know is that […]

Happy Homes for Our Linnies

It truly warms my heart to send our baby birds off to their new homes. The most recent clutch of Lineolated Parakeets was especially special, as it is the first since myself (Elaine Welbourn) took over control of Welcome Wings Aviary from my mother, Lori. I have been raising baby birds alongside my mother since […]

Still Growing!

off

Our linneolated parakeet chicks are currently being hand-raised, and are growing rapidly. There are five, in total, from two sets of parents. While it is still too early to tell, I suspect strongly that four chicks will be blue (either “cobalt”, or “marine”). When they are ready to leave my care in a few weeks, […]
