    Re: My babies are here!

    As if the pictures weren't enough that video totally makes me want more lovebird babies!! They are so adorable at that stage, where they don't completely look like mutant dinosaurs anymore, but are instead fuzzy little birdies. When they're learning to fly they're so much fun too! Being around to see it all is such a blast, you must be having a great time.
    But I still have all my 4 not-babies-anymore from last year, so we're a full house, LOL. I will just have to be satisfied with your excellent pictures and vids as there is not enough space in my hair for more birds to hang out

    Thanks for sharing the video. All the lovies are precious. I just wanted to jump into the screen and give them scritches. Way to cute.

    Re: My babies are here!

    Hi everyone. Thanks for your continued interest in this thread and all the nice comments.

    I just wanted to give you some updates.

    My Pied Fischer baby came home today. He looks really well. I can feel pins in all his bald spots on his head. So he should be looking like a show champion in no time. :-)

    In return for my friends caring for my baby, I offered her Fischer baby #2 and she accepted him. He left today to got o his new home. It was really difficult. I definitely choked up taking him from his cage and siblings. It was hard, but at least I know where he is and who he's with.

    Finally, Masked baby #1 appears to have some issue with his left wing. It looks like he only has half a wing...like there's no outer part. Possibly it's broken and just not coming out, or maybe he was born deformed and I never realized until this past week? If you look at the picture of him at the top of the page you can see he has no flights on his left side. I can't figure it out since I really don't know how the wing is designed. I have an appointment with the vet tomorrow morning to have a look and see what's going on. I'll let you know what the outcome is...

    Re: My babies are here!

    Hugs to you Tim. I know how hard it must of been for you to give up Baby #2 to your friend but it least like you said you know where he is and hopefully can still visit him now and then. I am sorry about the Baby #1's wing and hopefully you will have good news from the vet tomorrow. I can also see where it is missing its flight feathers in the picture.

    I cant wait to see a picture of your Pied baby, even if it still has some feathers missing on its head I bet it is drop dead gorgeous.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    I am in love with #1!! I hope his wing is Ok- but if not, the extra special ones always end up the favorites! I wish you could fly him over to Canada, I want him!

    Re: My babies are here!

    Thanks Kim, Deanna and Mell. Masked Baby #1 was born without a particular digit in his wing. So he most likely will never fly. I have my fingers crossed that he can have some sort of flight, but regardless...he will most likely stay with me now. Unless Mell comes to get him. :-)

    I caught this great pic of him flapping today. I have the original pic that is huge and can see where the front wing ends. I mapped out on the image the span of feathers he's missing compared to the other wing. Basically it looks like all the flight feathers that get clipped when you don't want a bird to fly. I guess we'll have to see if he manages flight or not...



    Here's a back view of the wing.



    Ok Deanna, I really didn't want to post a pic of Glorfindel until his head feathers all grew back, but since you're anxious here's one. :-)

    Re: My babies are here!

    Oh Tim, I know how difficult it is to give up the babies that hatch, because you, as the breeder, live and breathe every moment of each day with those little chicks, from the time the eggs are laid until the day you have to part with them. I am so sorry to hear about the little guy with the wing problem, but from what I read on the web about folks who do have what I call "special needs" birds, they all say that these birds are soooooo full of courage, and can live their life each day and do many things that one would think they could never accomplish. I will be praying that the little guy will live a relatively normal life. And with you, we know he will be happy and healthy.

    And the pics are precious!! Glorfindel is soooooooo beautiful, and Baby #1 Masked, looks like he has a very pleasing personality. Thanks for sharing!

    Re: My babies are here!

    I am confident that Baby #1 will have a good life with you or anyone else who wants him and perhaps he will fly because I learned with boomer no matter how short you cut his wings he still could fly. Maybe not as graceful as a fully flighted lovie but they can still get around good. He is sooooo cute, and myself have a mushy soft heart for handicapped birds.

    Thanks for posting a picture of Glorfindel (nice name for him) for us to enjoy and I think he is such a beautiful bird even if like you say his head feathers are not perfect. He sure looks perfect to me and your lucky I dont know where you live because you just might have to fight me off when I came to steal him away from you. I cant wait to see who you pair him up with and his babies when it comes time for you to breed him. He is even more handsome then his Dad!! What a lucky man you are to have such cute lovebirds to enjoy day after day.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    It's getting impossible to take photos of the babies anymore because they don't stop moving! So here's another video. :-)

    There are too cute!!! They all look so happy and the one trying to get away that you had to stop twice in the video has the prettiest bright blue feathers.

    Awwwwe so adorable!
    Their beutiful !
    I've always dreamed of having baby birds....but of course I still have to read tonnes more about it!and breeding your birds the first time is always very dangerous for your birds!
    I'm not sure...is there anyway to somehow a way to not make but ou know make your bird be in a good mood for breeding because my birds crer well my female one is normally blue but as soon as I put a male in her cere went crazy brown nearly black! And she is still refusing to breed with my male! Although they have a strong bond

    Re: My babies are here!

    Thanks Ellen. Deanna and Britany!

    Deanna, you're right. The rowdy blue one is gorgeous. He's as close to his fathers bright purple as he can be considering he only has one Violet factor. Plus he's got a great Mask to boot.

    Britany, since you're talking Cere colors I'm assuming you're talking about Budgies? The hens Cere should be white-tan normally. When they're in season it turns to a dark brownish color. Males are the ones with a Blue cere.
    The hen calls all the shots when it comes to breeding. Just because she's in season doesn't mean she's going to be receptive to your male. And if she doesn't want to breed with him there's pretty much nothing you can do.

    I just played your video several times for Ham and she went looking around the speakers for the chicks.
    We got lots of Ham here
