I've Done It Again

It looks like my flock has increased to seven!!! Just when I thought I was finished!!!

My daughter called yesterday, and advised that a friend of hers has to move, and needs someone to take a pair of Zebra Finches. They were headed for a rescue, so it looks like I'm taking them. Gillian has just picked them up, and I shall be getting them from her in the next few days. It's an eight hour drive return, so I have to have good weather.

Apparently, they've already bred, but not successfully. I'd say chances of babies are high. Hubby has offered to build an indoor aviary...a smallish one, but it will be great for them!

I'm heading to my daughter's tomorrow to pick them up. I'll be back on Friday. Their names are Tweeters and Beeps, but I'm re-christening them Stanley and Piper. Hubby has offered to build an indoor aviary, if (maybe I should say when) they breed. Apparently they've already bred, unsuccessfully, so I suppose it's just a matter of time. I didn't expect to be as excited as I am about getting them....

I'm glad for all of you.
Also, I'm glad you have seven total, and if you find a friend for Levi, you will have 8. That makes me not so crazy.


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

Nanay, we're not crazy...just a little different from most!
Hubby made a comment yesterday, about the aviary being able to hold more birds...Geez! I don't know what's up with him!!!
