I have posted these elsewhere but wanted to start a photo thread so Cowboy's growth and progress can be better tracked.
3 week old chick (he's the one in the center)
5 weeks old
also at 5 weeks
Can you tell I'm getting excited to bring him home?
It's hard to get great pictures right now as the staffs time is limited at the breeder's and Papa bird goes bonkers whenever someone open the nest box.
Our baby is 7 weeks old today, 2 weeks out of the nest. Still waiting on the breeder to give the word that we may bring him home. Getting a little impatient (we are very excited to get him home). The kids have been on Spring Break this week so they were really hoping to get him home and have some extra time with him too.
What is the average age when the chicks are able to be removed from the parents? I guess it's a good thing he is learning all he needs to know from his Budgie mom and dad first, right? That's what I'm trying to tell myself anyway.
