    We've got eggs...and pics!!!

    Hi all!

    With 12 budgies, it was a foregone conclusion that someday this day would come, but it was really interesting timing that we found one of our budgies had left us a Christmas present...although it was a few hours early. Christmas eve, Hehot was checking on the birds while I was feverishly finishing off some last-minute elf-work when he exclaimed "There's an EGG!! in the coconut!!!"

    As of this evening, there are three and Gizzy, the new Mom-to-be (that is if the eggs turn out to be fertile), is doing well. Here are some pics.



    And this is a picture of Gizzy

    We'll keep you posted,

    We have two suspects...

    Pinhead, "The Stalker", Yellowface...and Chomp, "Monkeyboy", Blue.


    The jury is out as to which did the deed...

    We suspect the stalker...although he is most often found lurking on top of the cage scowling at his nemesis while he watches his love from afar, he has been spotted emerging from Gizzy's coconut looking conspicuously dishevelled. As for Monkeyboy, although he is a devoted suitor, he spends his free time in the arms of another...the fluffy Monkey toy! His frequent rendez-vous make it unlikely that he would have enough energy left to consummate the love of his fair Gizzy, even if the opportunity presented itself.

    Ahhhh, the torment, two loves, but only one shall prevail...

    Perhaps the author should pursue a life of her own...lol

    OMG! I love the mugshots of the two possible suspect Daddies! Hmm... which will be paying "Clutch Support" to Gizzy?

    What a pretty picture of the Mom to be. She's a beauty! Oh you're gonna be in trouble if all the babies come out looking like Mamma! LOL!!!! Then I suppose it'll be up to Jerry Springer and some blood tests to determine paternity.

    Keep us posted!!! No matter what, I bet they're gonna be pretty babies. Love the nesty-coconut!

    Yes, Kathy,

    They are both taking turns feeding her, and fighting over feeding her. The other bird usually stares through the top of the cage while the feeding is going on, scowling at the other one. It's very funny, actually. Gizzy, for her part, seems very happy to have both boys at her beck and call. This way, she almost always has one standing guard outside her coconut and one running for food...when they're not chasing each other around the complex.

    As for separating them, we will if we need to, but the flock seems to have a way of sorting things out on their own. We always keep a watchful eye on them, but since they are only confined to a cage at night, they have plenty of space to get some breathing room from each other all day.

    ROFL!!!

    First of all, thanks to you and ScooterGirl for the Congrats! I don't think I'm ready for 25 though! LOL! Of course, it's easy to say we'll give them up now...I just know I'll be a wreck when it comes time to say goodbye. I'm such a sap. I'll be much better if I know they're going to good homes to at least to a good store. We've been told in advance that one of our favorite stores takes birds from private breeders and homes, so that makes me feel better. Of course, the eggs could still be infertile...despite the number of suitors. You just never know.

    We'll keep you informed. Egg number 4 due to be laid tonight!
