You know when you have been on these forums for a while when you remember Steele as a baby hatched (he was a twin) that is just nuts...my first reaction was to say Kaz are you sure he is old enough :wub: but I know he is time just flies. Look forward to seeing the babies :)

Yay,

 

Go Steel and Bih-Lin. What a pretty couple.

 

I have had 2 of mine paired up in the aviary since last April, when the female was just out of nappies!! They finally got their hearts desire and were ushered into a breeding cage recently. It is just nice to see pairs like that finally get a chance together without being worried about show standards.

 

Elly, I know what you mean.. it seems only a few months back that the twins were fighting for their lives, and when Kaz had the big poisoning drama, huh.

 

I go away for 3 months, and come back no longer a mod and there are new mods I have never even heard of... thinkgs move quickly on this forum :wub:

that is great Kaz, someone has probably asked this before but because he was a twin is there a chance that some of the eggs would be double yolks or is it not a genetic condition.

I dont actually know how thats works Deb. I have been told it could carry through. Time will tell :P

I think they look fantastic KAZ. They might not be show types but I don't think that matters. I think they are both very nice specamins. Can't wait to see the baby's.

They are cute and I have a soft spot for these two.

Wow Kaz,

 

Steel is really looking fantastic. I can imagine how gorgeous Bih-Lin is now, but I can't wait to see a newer photo at some time.

I will try but she is devoted to the nestbox and her six eggs. Steel helps her incubate too. :angry:

That's okay Kaz.... I figured you might take a photo when she has fledglings.

Wow, Miss Kaz,

 

She sure is pretty! The contrast of blue on her tail is just stunning. It's a shame Bih-Lin herself isn't around at the moment to see the picture.

Steel is turning out to be a top future father to his eggs. When his hen steps out for a break he goes straight in and sits over the eggs and incubates just like a hen does. When she is in the nestbox he sits with her too.

Kaz,

 

They are so cute. I have a couple of pairs like that at the moment. Only 4 eggs to look after but they seem to think the little Misses needs help. So cute. I just love the love watching budgies interacting. They are so caring in most cases.
