They're a couple of real stunners, and they look so happy and content.

Cheers,

Nice pictures. Kelly.
but I got the impression that their beaks are too long.
What do the others think?
I would give them beak care and blood work to check out the liver results.

They both went to the vet recently and the vet didn't say anything about them. I know that he would have if there was a problem

They are beautiful! I've not seen such gorgeous mutations as your flock! Did you breed a pair to get such beauties, or did you purchase them or home them from elsewhere?

Shelly proud mom! Loved to see your two budgies, beautiful. When my hubby said I could have ONE more bird I was going to get a budgie, decided to get one more lineolated parakeet aka barred parakeet for an even number of 4. As the saying goes two is company three's a crowd! I swear watching my birds is better than TV no reruns!!!!

all of mine are adopted except for leon (the white one, he was from Criagslist) and ace and Leo (second pic. they were from my friend and got a lack of care. i am slowly starting to train them, but they are very scared)

i would love to adopt a mostly yellow keet and a YF T2 (like my first keet), but i don't want to train more i still have 2 more to train and its going to be a challenge because they are so scared. what i really want is a GCC and a cockatoo. i have a cockatoo "picked out" that i would love to have if i was ever allowed one, and recently there are about 6 GCC on craigslist that people are selling.

It usually takes a little longer to train rehomed or rescued birds, but I feel strongly, that you will succeed with Ace and Leo. Thanks for posting the pics. I love how you have set up the perches. That is an amazing photo . . with all of them looking so relaxed and happy!
