I posted about my daughter’s love birds not too long ago. Although they can get pretty loud with their chirping, (they do not like to be ignored!).. they are cute and each has a personality of its own! They are very entertaining… it’s fun to watch their “family life” unfold during feeding time, bathing, sleeping, cuddling…
Recently, they had another batch of “babies”… (their 3rd!)
Here are the pretty little love birds. My daughter tries to handle them often so they get used to being held and learn to fly to them when they need to go back into their cage.
They are so very soft and warm! Very fun to hold.
They kind of freak out when you first take them out of the nesting box, but soon are at home in your warm hands.
Here is the biggest one (it hatched a few days before the other two) with its Daddy.
It’s amazing to see the parents actually push him out so he will learn to fly. I could hardly believe my eyes. When I say push, I mean PUSH. The poor bird flapped and nearly had a heart attack before it recovered enough to get itself upright again. Poor baby. It’s tough growing up, isn’t it?
These babies have grown very quickly and just in the past 2 weeks have learned how to fly, feed themselves, and are now ready for new homes. Thankfully, my daughter was able to find someone who will give them a good home. 🙂
Here are the parents. They certainly are love birds… there are already 3 new eggs in the nest!
Soon there will be three new babies.
And so on, and so on.
Enjoy your pets (if you have any).
If not… enjoy the quiet 🙂
