As requested by the lovely Goldenwing, here are some pics of my crazy flock.
We start with Ms JoJo, showing her very best ĎIím sweet and innocentí face. (Donít fall for it)! Even Alkira is shaking his head in disbelief that sheíd even try to convince anyone that sheís little miss sweet.
Handsome Peanut (PeePee). He has an owie on his beak but itís all better now.
Alkira the sticky beak. Always has to be right up in your business!
Today was the big day- Baby Cliffy is home! Heís been hime for a few hours and seems to be doing well. He hadnít had anything to eat or drink yet, but I know this is common so Iíll try not to worry. When I got Peanut and JoJo, and then Alkira, they all ate and drank straight away so Iíve never had the worry of waiting for a new bird to eat or drink something. Cliffy seems pretty content. Heís been chirping away and Iíve even heard him grind his beak a few times. On the flip side though, he was frantically throwing himself at the clear plastic part of the Vision cage, trying to get out. That was upsetting for me to see. Itís almost bedtime for the little guy, so heís currently sitting on a high perch, dozing off (but fighting as hard as he can to stay awake).
Cliffy is so cute, I am sure after a couple of days or sooner he will feel more comfortable. In the pictures he does not have the statue look of a scared bird, he probably hears the others and wants to get out and be with them.
Today is Cliffys second full day with us. Heís been great at night, sleeping right through without a peep. He started eating seed yesterday afternoon, but hasnít eaten anything different. Apparently, he had never been tried on veggies or sprouted seeds etc. so everything is totally new to him. Iím not too concerned at this stage because Iím hoping that after quarantine heíll follow the lead of the other 3 and eat what they eat. Last night he finally had some water to drink, so Iím relieved that heís eating and drinking. Yesterday he spent the day in his cage, getting used to things, but today heís out having a fly and a play (actually, heís been out for over 3 hours now and I canít get him back in. Iíd really rather not have to catch him if it can be helped). Here are some pics of the little guy.
