Mom Ziggy. She is the greatest mom bird in the world. So diligent and devoted!
Nov. 24, 2008 - First baby hatched!
Nov. 26, 2008 - Second baby hatched!
Nov. 28, 2008 - At 2 days old and 4 days old.
Nov. 29, 2008 - Baby number 3
has made an appearance!
Dec. 1, 2008 - Still 3 babies, though
it's hard to tell! They are much louder now and easily heard outside the box.
The oldest is one week old today!
Dec. 3, 2008 - I don't believe the last
egg is viable, but I am tickled pink
to have three little ones!
They are getting really big, too!
Dec. 5, 2008 - Ziggy is such a good Mom. Look how devoted she is and how she protects her kids. It's really sweet.
In the picture on the right, you can see how big the three kids are getting.
I'm thinking I will probably pull them for handfeeding Monday, when the oldest is 2 weeks old and the youngest will be 10 days old.
Dec. 6, 2008 - I love these pix of Ziggy with her babies! She's having a harder time covering them now, they have gotten so big.
I took out the last egg tonight, since I was afraid it might be foul and if it broke it might cause problems. When I opened it, I found a partially developed baby which was, indeed, rather stinky.
