As some of you know we were shocked last year to discover our parakeets had two babies and I followed with pics. Well, this morning, we heard that familiar little tweet tweet AGAIN! I am so shocked! I figured those two were an oddity and it would never happen again since many on here had said that was unusual. The other two of course are grown now, still living here and so this is exciting and I wanted to share! have a good day/night to all! This picture is from the first two. I have not opened the box yet because they sound tiny.
Well the parakeets, as some of you kept up with, have never had any more babies after the two they hatched. They have had many eggs but none have hatched. The time they did hatch, it was in the room in my loft and I had put a heater in there to keep it warmer. It may have been a default but I noticed the heater seemed to have issues shutting off and sometimes it would reach 80 degrees but the birds seem to love it. However, it usually stuck around 70 or less up there. I had to unplug the heater fearing it might over heat and kill them. Anyway, that MAY have been what made them hatch with the warmer conditions. So, I thought I would pass that along. Have a great one! 🙂
I am working on more fairy pictures to relieve some anxiety because my Yoga morning went awry. I started out doing it but I got a cramp in my foot so no downward dog today. But then downward and I do not get along so that was not a problem. But then I could do most of the other poses so I went back to sitting in my yoga pose for relaxing. And sooooo, I went to get up and tripped over my mat. So hello anxiety and my fairies are trying to elude me as I make them. Ouch. One of those days but still thinking positive thoughts as I check on the parakeets. Oh one has escaped the cage. I caught it but on the positive side, it is pretty while it flies. Hahahahahahaha.
My older pup, Buddy, is my constant indoor companion. My two outside shepherds, too big to live inside but well equipped with outdoor housing and shade and an abundance of toys are big babies. They love mommy and daddy and we can play for tow or more hours a day and walk them and they still want more attention even though they have almost an acre of free roaming space and each other. My cats are like mini monsters. They love to break, destroy, tear apart and well, actually just turn anything that is within reach into a shred of nothing. And then there are my sweet parakeets. They had two babies to my total shock and surprise that grew and came out of the nesting box. Well, now two weeks later mama bird is back in box so I assume more babies are coming. If nothing else, my animals fill me with love and daily surprises! have a great day fellow bloggers!
For those who are following the Parakeet baby journey, they are growing fast and thriving! We named them Tiki and Charlie although I have no idea if they are boys or girls! I do not know if 5 parakeets in one cage are too much but they seem happy and it is a very large cage. I tried putting the yellow parakeet in a cage because they were picking on it but I found it the next morn on top of its old home so I put it back with the others. Just an update! Look like mom and identical to each other! Thanks for following their journey!
To my parakeet friends, I have a picture of my first baby parakeet has come out of the box. Just today so I HAD to grab a picture for all of you! thanks for keeping and here it is! Looks just like the mommy Sky.
Today I just thought I would share some of my Art. I cannot really think of anything of importance to write about. The baby keets for those who are following are doing great and growing. The cat still does nothing when I go to take photos and I am still working on the Yoga and anxiety. 🙂 Have a great day fellow bloggers
Here is the one where I think I may spot a fuzzy baby close by the older baby! Right down at the bottom?
To all of you who wanted updates on the baby keets, I finally was able to get a decent picture of one and guess what? I think I see another fuzzy! I may be wrong but I think there is NOW a third baby ! I guess we we’ll see. It looked as though the other older baby was keeping it warm! AND yes, I finally got a picture that is clear so I am posting it for all of you! Have a great day fellow bloggers!
It is still blurry BUT I did manage to score a pic of the two baby keets that so far are making it! They are small and grey. The parents and blue and white on one mostly white with blue tips and the other is mostly blue with white tips. Soooo, I guess we will see if they stay this color or not. I said I would try and keep the blogger friends who wanted to know updated so here we are!
