    Re: Oh no!!! Here we go again...

    I just have to ask, what kind of camera do ya'll use? I'm on a quest for a digital camera. I now have 6 birds and I really need to get pictures of them. I did get some video footage of Truus taking a bath at the dinner table in a pyrex custard cup (it is sooo funny!) but it's not the same as pictures to post.

    I think you should be writing the manual Peter. :P

    Anyone who can get great photos of budgies (they move too **** quick) especially a photo with 15 budgies in it doesn't need to try and decipher "Manual English," although all this chatting on forums would probably give you the skills you need.

    Omg.. those pictures of Dory playing audience are halarious! The lightbulb one drew an audible laugh out of me! (Course everyone in the house had to come see what I was chuckling about).

    He really DOES look like he's observing intently..taking it all in.

    Now.. we'll just have to check out some wide angles of Baby and Dory to see who is in the background. That way, we'll know who Baby's next conquest is gonna be.

    Hmmm...ya know...she has been spotted talking to Pinhead a few times lately. Not sure what Gizzy would think about that She still has the ownership feathers for Pin. Although with Baby...you never know...it could be Houdini or Chomp or even Boo. I think Pinhead or Houdini might be targets though...she does seem to prefer yellow faces

    Oh my what a surprise!

    Just so you know, it's not good to let a hen raise more than 2 or 3 clutches a year... so I'd keep an eye on Baby after this one. It puts a LOT of stress on the mother.

    Yes, we know. But then, I've been keeping her really busy with a new activity centre a built the other day, and with all the constant changes to cages and toys around here, and so far...no eggs.

    So far, so good...we have been keeping a close eye on things and do what we can to discourage any breeding behaviour we see. At this time there have been no eggs laid and some of the behaviour has eased up. Jenn built the birds a new hanging play gym and Baby has been spending most of her time on it exploring all the new and birdy exciting things to play with so she has been spending less time ordering Dory around . So far, so good...

    Re: Oh no!!! Here we go again...

    Babybird seems to like the idea of motherhood. Egg number 1 was laid yesterday...unfortunately it was very thin shelled and it cracked. Also at some point Baby poked a hole in it with her beak...almost like she knew it wasn't a good egg. Egg number 2 was laid sometime early this evening and it looks a lot better than number 1. As the thread title says "Oh no!!! Here we go again"...

    Maybe more babies! Do you know who the dad is, or has Baby been "sharing the love"?

    Good to see you again Peter, how are you all doing up there in Canada?

    Hey Tanni...guess we won't know for a while yet if there will be new babies or not. Yup, we know who the dad is...Dory was the one doing the deed with Babybird this time. Did he do it right...we can't be sure...but he sure looked like he enjoyed himself
    We're doing great here Tanni...how bout you and that little budgie lover son of yours?

    We're all well, Tate is in love with a friend of his dad's cockatiel at the moment which he was calling a "giant-big yellow and white budgie" until I found him a pic of a lutino tiel. He wants one now

    Those pictures of Dory watching Baby and Timothy are so funny! Especially when you have him circled out. More eggs? Wow...I hope Baby will be okay with laying eggs again so soon.
