Today, September 15th Lotas celebrates his first hatchday! Happy birthday, my beautiful little one! :party:

Here he is exactly one year ago, when he was just a few hours old


Another one of him growing his feathers.


The following photos were taken today on his first birthday! He spent the morning with sister Khaleesi on his special day.


Lotas won second place for Best Small bird in this year's Talk Budgies Bird Show.

Here is Lotas (on the right) with his little sister Khaleesi who is currently 4 months old


Khaleesi is very affectionate to all birds including her brother


Little Khaleesi had to steal the show, of course! Just look at that sweet, curious face! :D


They shared a treat stick as celebration today during out of cage time, only took a few bites and both lost interest soon.


And here is Lotas, getting sleepy and tired of Khaleesi always being in his face, either kissing or preening.

Thank you, Dee, Elsabé and Jill! They had a fun day today. :)
You can easily see they are siblings, I don't know if you are able to notice the differences, but Lotas is more orangey and light coloured around the face, head and neck area, while Khaleesi is darker in the face overall. She has been getting a bit lighter in colour too since she began moulting, but I doubt she will have the same amount of orange that Lotas has.

Happy Hatchday! He's such a pretty little bird! <3
Lotas and I thank you! Hopefully Khaleesi won't be mad at me, but between the two of them, Lotas is the better looking one. ;)

Thanks, Ollie! You can really see how white his eyelids are in that particular picture.
Lotas does have nice colours, but I think his father, Nico has the best colours overall. I will soon make a thread of the whole family. :)

Thanks, Lyn! You are right, both Lotas and Khaleesi have the same colours as one of your lovebirds. I remember the thread you posted a while ago. :)

Aww, it's perfectly fine Deb! No problem at all!
Thank you for the best wishes. Lotas had a blast on his special day and got to play with his little sister. :)

Thanks, Skye!
Khaleesi will be 5 months old on September 28th. I had the privilege to be there for them since day one and watched them grow. Lotas was the first lovebird ever to hatch in my home. Before he hatched and the eggs were there I didn't even know for sure if I had a true male/female lovebird couple!
