Misty Has A New Baby Chick

Misty - Female Dilute Blue Turquoise Lucida Parrotlet My Dilute Blue (Amercian White) Lucida Turquoise female parrotlet Misty has a new baby chick.  She is such a proud mommy.  She had 4 eggs, but only 3 were fertile and she kept getting off of her eggs.  Amazingly, she managed to hatch this 1 cute chick.  Can you see the fuzzy little pink baby?  She is a good mommy to the little chick.

 

 

 

Misty - Female Dilute Blue Turquoise Lucida Parrotlet 2People always wonder if their pets will stay tame if they breed.  Misty certainly has.  She loves my attention (one of the reasons she keeps getting off of her eggs).  ”

 

 

 

 

 

Misty - Female Dilute Blue Turquoise Lucida Parrotlet 4As you can see, she loves when I scratch her neck.  She just melts.  So sweet.

Parrotlet chick is doing great!

The little pink fuzzy is doing great!  He is getting stronger everyday!  Looking forward to pulling him for handfeeding!

Babies First Picture – Awwwww!

Here is the first picture of what I am sure will be a pied parrotlet!  He is only 5 days old and an only chick!  The other eggs in the photo are infertile.  Oh well, maybe next time more siblings.

Here is a photo of him with his gorgeous father!  Mama got spooked my the camera and bailed but he stood his ground to protect his only chick!  So cute!

I hope to pull this baby for handfeeding in about 1 week if all goes well!  Fingers crossed!

Babies Are Hatching!

Good News!
I just had 1 new baby hatch on Feb. 27th! 
This is from a very unusual green pied male – He has a completely yellow head and green body so he looks a bit like a tiny double yellow hear amazon!  I am not sure if he has any splits. His mate is a green pied female that has double leg bands so I am not sure what splits she carries, but I am guessing the the original breeder put two closed leg bands on her to designate some split or another.
The male is a bit older.  They only had 1 fertile egg of the 5 they laid.  I will pull this baby for hand feeding when he is two weeks old at which time he will be closed banded with one of my bands carrying the initials GCB, 11, and # on it. My leg bands this year will be black with white lettering.

I also currently have 1 blue pied male & green/blue pied female sitting on fertile eggs.
I have 1 spectacled pair of parrotlets going in and out of the nest box as well as some other pied pairs of parrotlets!  Check back to see if any new babies are posted and available for deposit!
