    Default Who wants to watch my baby birds grow?

    My baby cockatiels are just a few days old, who wants to watch them grow into beautiful birdies? These pictures are in order;
    First pic is baby #1, Athos, when he just hatched. He hatched on the 9th of August.
    Second pic is baby #2, Prothos, when he just hatched. He hatched on the 11th of August.
    Third pic is Athos and Porthos together. As of today, Athos weighs 11.2 grams and Porthos weighs 4.9 grams. As you can see, Athos is just a couple days older then Porthos, however he is almost triple the size. We still have one more eggie waiting to hatch. http://m.imgur.com/a/vGl4T In these picture>http://m.imgur.com/a/WdXBk > you can see Athos and Porthos older brother (I think brother ), RiffRaff. And this is Ma and Pa, Kellie and Buddy (I didn't name them lmfao). Ma is yellow and Pa is grey and white>>

    Edit: Aramis, baby #3 just hatched a couple hours ago!! However I didn't get a picture of him. Aramis is a whopping 2.0 grams! Yay the three musketeers is now complete.

    Bright and alert! And love those baby pinfeathers. What do you feed them??

    (Also, on the side, was sad to see that you have to find a new home for Lovely and Dekstest. Any luck yet? Hope you will stay on the forum, though - you have been so helpful!!)

    I feed them a hand feeding formula, made for birds. I use Zupreem brand. I did use a different brand, but it just didn't fill them up like it should. This one seems to be great. I prefer to wait as long as I can to start feeding them this, because natural food (just like breastfeeding) is way better. But I didn't have a choice with these two if I wanted them to live.


    I have not found a home yet. I'm very picky on who they go to lol. I wish I could keep them, but it's for the best. I am not going anywhere lol. You e also been very helpful!
    (Is not going to push it if they don't sell, at least I can say I tried lol)

    http://m.imgur.com/gallery/Vc5yv The pic with only a single baby it in is Aramis, the last (definitely not least) baby. He is soo little compared to Athos and Porthos, who are only a few days older!

    Yes, soo small! A newly hatched tiel is about the size of half a thumb. They're healthy and eating, and growing like crazy! Little Aramis hatching yesterday afternoon and he's aleatory a couple grams bigger then he was, it's crazy!

    Little Aramis died sometime, this early morning. Idk what happened. He was (what I thought anyway) healthy, and even gained some weight. He had blood on him, so I am thinking he got trampled by the parents. I'm comepletely heartbroken! Wish I could be prevented this... RIP Aramis!

    http://m.imgur.com/gallery/qRpoP Here they are tonight! I zoomed the first pic in, so you can kinda see the color difference in the down, (the fuzzy fuzz) Its hard to see in pictures, but Porthos (smaller, with dark eyes) down is a lot light yellow then Athos (the bigger one) down.. I'm hoping that Porthos will be a pastelface. Both started to open their eyes on the 19th; at 10 and 8 days old. Athos is just starting to get pin feathers, and I can't wait for Porthos to get his feathers so I know for sure what he is! I suspect a pied pastelface. I weigh ever three days; the 19th, Athos weighed 22g and Porthos weighed 8g.. we had a rough time getting Porthos to eat, nut I think we're all good now.

    We miss lil Aramis, that's forsure!
