I had the babies out for some people time today and got this cool video of mom and dad hanging out and feeding their babies right next to me. io was amazed they were not afraid to come down to the carpet and see what we were doing. We had a nice time. when I got up once to get more seed the littlest followed me. I felt special! Enjoy!

Well phooey, I am getting a message I am missing a security certifacate. So.any one know something about uploading videos I don't?

aww they're so cute! I just want to squish and cuddle em! The lutino baby is my fav out of all of them. Are you keeping him? If I had babies at home, the poor parents would miss them because I would want to hold them 24/7!

Yes we are keeping the lutino! We don't see many around here, plus it was the last born, and I fed the little darling so it could keep up with the others. My grand daughter has named her Honeysuckle. We want to find homes for the others, but will keep them if no takers. We don't have room for more cages, but they can bunk in other cages with my other cockatiels, or with our bourke.
Here is todays batch of pictures.

I just realized I haven't posted in a week. How fast they grow. I took the nest box out today, and they are all testing perches and flapping wings. They are all eating some seed and whole food so we are happy with the results. Charlie and Cinnamon are good first time parents, they relly worked hard to feed four mouths. I took some pictures this morning. A little yellow from the flash, but not bad pics.

We took out the nest box yesterday, and I put in a small dog bed for them to sleep on if they wanted. They all cuddled together last night like they were camping out. Tonight just Honeysuckle was using it. The oldest three are taking short flights from the carpet to the cage, very exciting to see! I also gave them some cat toy balls to play with and they seem to enjoy making lots of noise with them!

Remmy our conure is still sitting. They should start hatching Sunday....

They grew fast and flew all over the place! We took three to the pet shop yesterday for them to sell. They will find good homes. We kept Honeysuckle though, she is so sweet and too cute for words! I put her in with our Bourke's and they get along fine. Mom was starting to pick on her so it was time to move her out. I will have to start a new thread on the adventures of Honeysuckle.

We stopped by the shop for food and I visited with the babies we gave up. They are all doing well, hanging out with bay budgies, lovebirds and other young tiels. The owner is quite pleased with them. My daughter spent hours eberyday feeding .comnd holding them. They are so tame! Some one will buy really nice tiels. I miss them a little, but I have a house full.
