I have another little baby girl I am handfeeding. She is blue split to yellow. She comes from Turquoise and Dilute Blue parents. She is so darn sweet. I think these last 2 girls have been especially friendly because they have each been raised alone. She waits on the bars of the cage, chirping when she sees me or hears me hoping I will let her out. She is not afraid of anything, but when something does startle her, she runs to me. So cute. She also likes to climb in my shirt and cuddle and preen herself.
This little handfed baby Dilute Blue Parrotlet girl has been such a joy to raise. She is by far the friendliest bird I have ever handfed. A bird like this only comes around once in a rare time. You can see by the photos how alert and curious she is about everything. She loves being out and ruling her world. She looks the camera right in the eye! She will be on her way to a very lucky new family in Denver, Colorado tomorrow! I will miss her so much, I don’t want to think about it, but I know she will get all the attention she deserves!
Misty’s little girl is now about 4 1/2 weeks old. She is the cutest and sweetest baby I have ever raised. I think it has a lot to do with her being raised a lone. The baby loves me and will cry for me until I go and get her. She is so trusting and will let me do anything to her. Her favorite place is still at the front of my shirt, snuggling against my chest and chirping and singing, and playing with my necklace. What a doll.
This little girl is just so cute! She spends the day hanging out in my shirt. She sits in a warm sock and pops out when she wants attention, or she thinks it’s time to eat. Whoever ends up with this little doll is going to love her!
Remember those little pink rubber eraser babies from about 6 weeks ago? Well look at those beauties now.
They grew up to be 1 marbled blue pied male, 1 exquisite turquoise, marbled, pied female, 1 turquoise male & 1 turquoise female. All of the babies look to be of the Lucida subspecies so their coloring is incredibly vibrant.
I haven’t really seen pieds like this before, but they have a scalloped, edged marking on the wings and a marbled coloring on their chests.
This is a female. She was baby #4 of the clutch, and the youngest. She is a gorgeous rainbow of colors. I just love her. I am calling her a Turquoise Marbled, Lucida Pied.
Here is another look at this remarkable little female baby parrotlet. The camera really cannot capture the soft pallete of colors on her chest. There is pale yellow and pale minty green and pale blue mixed in with a lot of white.
This little baby female parrotlet also has tiny white feathers above each eye which gives her the look of eyebrows. She is very shy.
Here are some great photos of my sweet boys, Sidney a turquoise pastel (dilute), and Fletcher, a turquoise. They are so cute. The camera just doesn’t do justice to Sidney’s rainbow of colors.
Fletcher – Beautiful Turquoise Male
I think Fletcher may be a lucida male as the blue eye streaks wrap around his head and he has a very deep violet cobalt rump.
Sidney is a good boy and loves me. Fletcher tends to be very shy. I am not sure why since I hand fed him from a very young baby and he got lots of loves and attention.
Even though Fletcher is shy (see him hiding under Sidney?), He is still a very sweet bird. Doesn’t bite, he is just a bit skittish.
Gorgeous Sidney! I wish the camera could really capture his true colors!
