Didn't Liz say in a previous post that they hid the eggs well or she didn't find them in time? I would have permanently placed nest boxes so there was no hunting required. :hatched: :hatched: :hatched: :hatching: :hatching: :lol:

And, please, don't breed anymore, Liz.


I did not breed on purpose. I am against breeding. I have rescued the little handicapped ones that no one else wanted. Any bird hatched is taking the space of a bird that needs a home.

I have been doing supplemental feedings. He does not peck the soft food, just the seed. He is way to young for that so the feedings add water to his diet.

I did not intend for this one.

I have soda cartons scattered through the guest room. They have an entry that is away from their nesting area. Only Flutter is using one. I think I have found all the nests and have changed eggs to fake ones already.

Yesterday evening I heard a Cockatiel call me. It sounded like he was out of the room and talking to me. I am absent minded and thought I had left the door open. Mobile homes have spaces at the bottom of the doors to allow for circulation. Tommy had stuck his head out from under the door. It was like him saying "I found this space can I use it to come out and play?".

That's the one thing that always worries me when the little ones are out: the fact that they can get into small spaces that might end up being dangerous to them. Luckily, Peachy always answers with a loud PEEEP! and pops her head out to look at me when I call her and Jerry never really hides, he usually just flies to wherever Peachy is hiding and waits for her to come out but even when he goes behind the curtains or the tapestries with her, he comes out when she does.

Baby has not learned to answer me yet. Most answer me then identify where they are. Rainbow loves to get into boxes. In the evening when I want to close there window I ask where he is so I don't close him out. She does not really hide and both the Amazons will give their location away even when they are getting into trouble.
