Little Tucker aka Baby #1 Went Home With His New Family!

I am happy to report that Baby #1 now called "Tucker" went home with his new family on Saturday!  His new "parronts" drove over 2 hours to come and pick him up.  His new mommy, Amy has been watching him grow from a tiny egg to the big beautiful boy he became.

All of the babies took to Amy right away.  They were climbing all over her and snuggling in her neck.  We had a nice visit and I sent Tucker home with a nice care package of seeds, dried fruit, millet sprays, cuttle bone & mineral block & a toy! 

He was having so much fun being out of the cage and playing with Amy that he didn't want to go into his carrier!  I am sure he snuggled with mommy on the drive home!  At last report Tucker had settled into his new home nicely.  I look forward to new photos and updates about Tucker.

The other 2 babies have been hanging out with me everyday!  I am keeping the Turquoise baby but I think I could let baby #2 go to a good family.  If you are interested in adopting him (adoption fee applies) just send me an email! He is a little sweetheart!

Little "Buster" comes to visit the babies!

I was thrilled to have "Buster", one of my blue pied babies visit yesterday!  He has grown into such a big, sweet, gentle natured boy!  I was worried at first that Buster would be aggressive towards the babies, but he was as gentle as can be.  He has been with humans only, since he went to his new home about 4 months ago.  Buster is now 7 months old.  He was so cute with the babies.  The first thing he tried to do was feed the babies.

This was how it was in the beginning.  The babies stayed in their little "clique" and Buster was the "outsider".  Buster pulled out all the tricks to charm them.  He is very charming so it wasn't long before...

...Ah Scritches from Baby #1!  Just the right spot!  Buster was so cute.  He kept trying to get the babies to scritch his little neck.

You can see the difference in coloring on their wings.  When Buster was younger he was more blue on his back.wings, but as he molted out he has gone more grayish which I find is very normal in the blue males.  The babies seem to have a tighter scallop effect that is very iridescent and deep in coloring on their backs/wings.

Buster has infiltrated the "clique".  You  can really see the lovely
scalloping on the wings of baby #2.

Buster came over for a little wing trim.  Once he realized that I was going to "ground" him he took off and showed off his aerodynamics skills.  He gracefully landed on my mantle!

I think these would make great Christmas Cards for Buster's family this year!

He was so proud of himself!

Buster brought me some nice freeze dried fruit for the babies & I sent him home with a couple of  toys & some nice fruity seed mix!  I am so proud of the beautiful boy he has become!

My Babies Are All Grown Up & Ready To Leave Me!

My sweet little babies are all eating on their own now.  I think they are by far the sweetest clutch if babies I have raised in a long time.  They love to hang out with me, and all love each other as well.  They each have their own unique personalities too.

Baby #3 - My Turquoise Male always wants to be in the middle.  He will stop at nothing to get there!



Chick #1

Beautiful Boy!  The Ring Leader!

Chick #2 - Another Gorgeous Boy!  Always So Curious!

Chick #3 - My Boy!  We have bonded.  See how he looks at me?

Little Clowns  # 1 & # 3

They Love to cuddle with me.  I have done this with them since they were tiny pink rubber babies!

They also love to fly to me and hang out on "Mom"
I will miss the one's that are leaving me, but know they will have wonderful loving homes with people who will spoil them like they want!
