Default We have a name!

So first the name and explanation....his/her name is Schnitzel (think wienerschnitzel for pronunciation). Now why? Well I was remembering how my great-grandmother (now passed) would tell me stories when I was a kid about how she raised canaries. She once ended up having to handfeed a canary and told me all sorts of stories about her beloved tame canary. Well my grandmother was also full on German. I remember her always telling my sister and I to make sure to pick up all the schnitzels off the floor. Papierschnitzel means bits or scraps of paper in German. We remember her saying that so often that we say schnitzel all the time too. In fact, the other night as my brother-in-law was leaving he told me to "have fun with your new little schnitzel." It struck me as funny and schnitzel has stuck and it's a little nod to my great-grandmother.

So here is Schnitzel,who is 18 days old and weighs 46 grams.


Where's breakfast?


Big morning stretch




What's down here?


Oh, I found some millet






All tuckered out, time for a morning nap

Honestly that's a perfect name, I love it!

The first picture

Following Schnitzel's story is just awesome, so glad you're sharing.

That's really sweet and a great way to honour your great-grandmother!
I see your little Schnitzel already has the punk hairdo, not long now till the pinnies on his forehead start to open and the lovely feathers come out.

That's a fabulous name! And great story about your grandma and her canary. I am sure she would be very proud of how you are mothering Schnitzel!
