babies..not Hav's tho

I just wanted to share a pic of the three little babies I'm caring for while I wait for our new puppy. We have parrot friends here, both Eclectus Parrots and Blue Headed Pionus. My BHP pair produced three beautiful chicks this Spring. I hope I'm not breaking any rules to post about them. I am not posting them for sale and although the testing is somewhat different, the parents are health tested.

Three more weeks before I get my Hav.!

Yes, they will all get bright green feathers, with red vent feathers and cornflower blue heads just like their parents! Here's my favorite pic of their dad Hunter.

Wow~ They are just awesome! Congrats and have fun with them!
Will you be keeping them or do you sell them? And here is a silly question, do your parrots talk? My daughter has always wanted a talking bird...but I think our hands are full with the dogs right now! LOL~

Great pictures, Christy! I don't see anything wrong with posting these - we're in the coffee shop so anything goes here, I would think! It should be interesting to see the interaction between the pup and your birds. Can't wait to hear about it!

When I was much younger the family of a good friend of mine raised several different kinds of birds, including eclectus. They are quite beautiful. I've raised peachfaced lovebirds along the way, so I have a soft spot for those baby birds! They are beautiful, as is the adult with that beautiful blue head!

A bf in high school's parents got a baby red wing macaw. I had no idea how much work it takes to raise birds. They were feeding it every 3 hours, warming up the food, etc. It was really neat to watch his feathers come in too. I just had no clue how involved the process was of raising those birds.

Thank you all for the compliments. Yeah I think they're pretty cute. Katie, I do sell them. These are the second clutch we've had. I kept one baby from the first clutch and named him Ozzy. Now we're all full up with parrots and I won't be keeping anymore. Some talk and some don't...Ozzy is a strong little talker just like his father and so is Jax my male Eclectus. Some of my favorites around here are "Iiiiiii gotcher footie!" "Peek-a-booooo" "It's ok" "Tickle-Tickle-Tickle" "Are you mama's girrrrl?"... they are very funny and say alot of things. I also get to hear all kinds of noises..kisses and wolf whistles, phones ringing and Ozzy is currently working on the Andy Griffith Theme. *It's recogniseable but still has a way to go.

It is a fair amount of work! I let the mama raise these babies for the first couple weeks and then they are taken for handfeeding. These guys are fed on a four hour schedule and can sleep through the night on their own. They'll be able to drop back to a five hour schedule soon, so not too bad.
