I'm afraid my older brother took the nice camera with him to college, so I've had to downgrade to my iphone for these pictures. I'm hoping to get my little point & shoot camera working again, but it may be too much effort to call it from the grave

Poor YoYo is going through a painful molt. I've been giving him baths almost every day to relieve the itchiness. He almost went completely bald on his face before the pin feathers popped in. I'm starting to see splotches of his true color come through. I always love witnessing the goldenface transformation.


I keep putting newspaper over the mirror on the basketball toy, but they keep tearing it off. I swear they enjoy playing that game more than they make use of the toy.


The 3 boys are getting along fabulously, though! I wasn't entirely sure if one would get left it in the odd number, but they all rotate their attention. Hermes continues to get bossed around by both his sons

I am sorry to hear about YoYo's discomfort. Still, his little spiky face is so cute!

I have trouble with Lemon Drop liking to uncover things I have covered. She has even tried to take the sheet off of the big, beautiful wall mirror in the corner of my living room. When I put painter's tape on the trim around the windows, so she would not peck at the wood, then she had a great time ripping off the tape. I'm sure your birds think ripping things off is lots of fun.

Poor little YoYo. I hate when they have such miserable molts.
He's fortunate that you've been doing all you can to help relieve the itchiness.

Hermes getting bossed around by both his boys -- well, that doesn't seem fair!

Thankfully YoYo is just about out of his molt now! Oh, yes they have great fun tearing everything off

He's just too easygoing. He got bossed around by every single one of his chicks too! No respect for the elder!

I got some better pictures of the birds with a proper camera. You can really see little YoYo's colors coming through!

I think there's a secret meeting going on here...what a nice triangular shape they make


In other news, a pair of Great Horned Owls decided to make a nest on top of our tack room and bathroom in the indoor arena. I'm excited, don't get me wrong, but they spook the horses and are a bit creepy sometimes. I mean, these birds are huge (you can see mamma on top of her nest in the second picture). Plus...you walk in to grab something and their heads turn all the way around to watch you. In the dark seeing big green eyes staring you down gets you a little fidgety. So far, they haven't been aggressive to us walking below the nest but don't want to underestimate parental instinct.

Here's dad, who I've affectionately named "Specs" since they'll be staying with us awhile. I thought it a fitting name for an owl after one of my new favorite Musicals, The Newsies.

I love the owls, too

Great pictures of the boys.

I love great horned owls!
It must be very strange seeing those eyes staring at you in the dark though.
Hopefully they won't spook the horses too much. Isn't it odd they chose that area to build a nest?

Thanks for sharing the pictures! You got some great photos of your little guys. I also enjoyed the owl pictures.

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about the thread for my boys in the midst of my other art and horse ones.

My floor is constantly covered with feathers since they've all been molting. It never ceases to amaze me how completely the color change takes over with the goldenface mutation. YoYo looks so different! He's riding on the cusp of adulthood.


As always, everyone enjoyed their bathtime.


I swear, this is the exact same pose


Waiting in line


YoYo doesn't jump in with as much gusto as the other two...in fact, he mostly gets wet only when he clumsily falls in He chases away Echo or Hermes then lands right in.


Hermes is always my most dependable model

Cute pictures, interesting change in YoYo, in looking at his baby pictures I never would have thought he would be green as an adult.
