Very nice! little cotton fluffs just want to make you hug and squeeze them! Do you plan to hand feed them?

I have been helping feed the youngest baby, who was four days behind the first guy. He is also the only one with pink eyes,a lutino. I checked this morning and they all had empty crops, but the parents are stuffing themselves for the morning feed so I haven't done a feeding yet.

awww. Hand feeding is so much fun. I had a blast hand feeding Alex. I tednd to cuddle then feed then cuddle some more. He became very spoiled. But I sure was excited when he finally weaned! So pink eyes means a lutino? I never knew that. I though it was in the coloring.

The pink eye baby also has very pale yellow down right now, and not very much of it. I also see white, so it will be lutino I think. I am not an expert at mutations!

We cleaned out the box and cage today and took pics of the babies. I also fed them this morning. Mom and dad didn't mind, they went out to breakfast in another cage! So here are a few pics. The oldest is three weeks tomorrow and the youngest will be three weeks next Tuesday. We only took pics of two biguns, they were so active. Ok there is one of a smaller baby included.

I just checked the babies before covering their cage and the bubs are plum chuck full! Parents did a good job this evening. Those birds will be bigger in the morning! Here is a pic of the parents. Mom is the yellow cinnie, her name is Cinnamon, and dad is the white face, name of Charlie. She is tame and he is not. She was more tame before meeting Charlie.
