Sunday, Budgie Sunday...Goldie's Chicks June 17th

This first picture is of the youngest two chicks. They just left the nest yesterday afternoon, and had thier first night out on the perch. Today they will have thier first flying lessons!

In the picture below, you can see thier three older siblings. All three of these guys are flying well and are feeding themselves about 80% of the time. Goldie & Freebird are nearly done with thier parental duties.

So now we can tell we have chicks from both Freebird AND Gorgeous George. Tsk Tsk! But we shouldnt be too judgemental of Goldie. After all, Gorgeous George is an aptly named young stud, and being as it was his first chance to breed - well - he was trying to nail anything with feathers. In other words, Goldie didnt have a chance to resist him. Good thing Freebird has chosen to forgive and forget.

Please excuse the picture quality today, we are having wild weather and its just a bit too dark in the aviary for my light hungry camera.

Enjoy your Sunday!
