:ausb: She sure is one smart budgie to have figured out her own little "special" place. :D

There are a few special places in the aviary that they choose to use, and some birds have started trying to have babies in very weird places. I have had to move some of them as the places they chose would have been dangerous or the resulting babies would have drowned when it rained etc. I can't get to Amara, so we will have to wait and see. I will get a torch and try for photos of her hidey spot later....but for now she can stay and raise whatever eggs or babies she has. :P

Todays news....Swift and Rocket have two new babies with four eggs. Bonnie was husband hunting again so she has been jailed (she is meant to be retired from breeding). Buddha is flying everwhere like a pro. Bao still scuttles about but needs new flight feathers to help her fly. Cameo is the only baby now that steps onto my finger in the aviary...she's such a sweetie :ausb: two weeks out of the nest in an aviary and she still wants to be friends. :) Just two weeks to go ( Kens holidays ) and we start changing the aviaries around. I can then divide up the birds better so retirement birds, non breeders and youngsters can all be where they are meant to be.

We haven't lost any more birds since the treatment began. One whitefronted blue scarlet girl, although looking unwell has hung in there when we expected her to have died weeks ago. The birds are on the doxycycline for 6 weeks. We have to move them into another smaller area so the chances of them drinking moisture from plants, rain or elsewhere is lessened. That way the medicine works better. We have bought a smaller metal aviary for his birds quarantine whilst on medicine....measures about 6 foot wide by same height by 4 foot wide. Once we move his birds we can set about scouring his aviary for the renovations for the future enclosures in there for the budgies. :ausb:

There's just "something" about her :blink: You should see her Lin....puts herself to bed same time every night now.....toddles down the the perch end of the aviary....toddles like a clockwork toy....then she climbs up the mesh, then up the thatch and onto the perch in her usual spot ready for bedtime. :angel1:

She's just such a gorgeous little baby! What a good girl! Wish my darn birds would put themselves to bed, instead of making me bleed because I say it's bedtime :blink::

I think she is a YF2 grey dilute ? (anyone correct me if I am wrong).............Babies are gorgeous....last lot of photos were taken only yesterday...I will update tomorrow if any colour changes. Both parents look after babies....Chucky has been in the nesting box with Misty since she laid her first egg.

:) My goodness, don't know how you handle it all, sorry about the dead ones but the rest are looking magnificent! Did you look at my babies that were bred without rhyme nor reason but turned out okay to the delight of all their owners? :fear

All I can say is cute, cute, cute. What a delight it must be to have such a large aviary!

I love ALL my budgies and only want the best for them. My husband and I sit outside and watch them frolic every evening come rain or shine. I love it ! I know all of them by name and personality.....some of the babies recognise me and fly over to sit on my shoulder as I walk around in the aviary, and thats so nice that they remember and have no fear. Unusual for aviary birds. I work from home too, so they all get the best of care and attention. :fear

Cheeta's sharp eye has picked up a possible cinnamon spangle in the nest box of Kaya and Sonny....its looking like she may be right. The eldest baby of Misty and Chucky is turning the prettiest shade of diluted blue on the body, with wings like mother. Youngest looks to be a clone of the mother and we have a yellow face blue (maybe type 1) in her box too.
