Time To Reveal The Secret I Have Been Keeping

I have been keeping a secret. Wanted to make sure they hatched and got to be old enough to bring in for hand raising. I have pulled them a little early as the weather here is so changeable at the moment. Saturday was over 30C and Saturday night and Sunday the temperature dropped rapidly when a cool change came through and it rained all Saturday night and all Sunday.

It has been 3 years since I had any of these to hand raise, since I lost 5 eggs from 2 nests when we had a really bad thunderstorm and there was a direct lightning strike on the power pole at the front of my house. I also lost Budgie eggs and Lorikeet eggs.

Everyone welcome my 2 baby Galah's (Roseate or Rose Breasted Cockatoos).

The elder larger one was 2 weeks on Saturday and the smaller 2 weeks on Tuesday.

I have been really paranoid that I would have problems and they wouldn't hatch or I would lose them with all the storms we have been having. The drought has definitely broken.

Oh what cuties! :love: Galah's are still pretty much my favorite cockatoo. I can't wait to watch them grow

So cute, they are beautiful birds, I saw two babies at a bird show last weekend and they were for sale. I would love one but the price was out of my range.
Good luck with your babies.
