One more of "the girls"

Mom and Dad and one of the whole crew:




That's it!! :) They had a location change due to noise issues in my office! The blue wall in my office is a much better background than the dull guest room!!!! :o

Awww! They're so cute! How old are they now?

OMG!!! They're SO cute! The three triplets look almost identical. ;) It has been so much fun to watch these little ones grow up, from tiny eggs, to the gorgeous birds they have turned out to be. I wish them the best of luck in their new homes, and I hope *mom and dad* won't miss them too much. :p

One of my "bird buddies" calls them "Ditto", "Ditto" and "Ditto"!!!! LOL!!!! They do look alike, don't they, Popcornbird? The oldest baby, Bennie, is 8 weeks old today. The other two little ladies will turn 8 weeks old on Sunday. :)

Logan, you read my mind!
I was just wondering if there were any new pictures and here they are!
I bet you will miss them as well as Roger and Milly!
Great pictures. Will Bennie get to move in with Aly? Hope! Hope!
It would be great to be able to see him after he finds his new home! Hint Hint!:D

aww those babies are so precious I hope they have a good time in their new homes!

Those are some excellent pictures, Logan. I love seeing them all together too. Now, just how do we determine the girls from the boys? If I remember correctly, Milly didn't start out as Milly.

I am another one who is simply amazed at how they started out as little eggs and then those scrawny, funny looking pip squeeks and. taa daa, now such mature beauties. What fun. They must have been growing right before your eyes.

Also from the looks of the cages and surroundings, they certainly aren't missing anything to stimulate their development. :p

HOPEFULLY! The only issure in the way is transportation. I'm trying so hard to work something out. I spent 2 hours talking to the bird people and playing with the baby cockatiels at a local pet store last weekend. I'm doing a lot of pet sitting this week and by coincidence made the exact amount of the cost of the cage. So I think I'll make the final step in the cage search and buy it Sunday. Hopefully soon I'll have the good news that I've decided on a method of transportation.

Great pictures Logan! They're sooooooooooo cute :D I'm glad you posted them before we had to resort to begging! :D :D :)

Can you believe they looked like this only a month or more ago???


If I could figure out a way to link the whole album, I would, but it isn't working so far.

It's only been a little more than a month!?! Are you serious!? Cute cute cute!:D

Logan, I think it is fantastic that you have been able to share a miracle with us from start to almost the finish (when they have their forever homes).

I have loved every picture you have taken of the babies.

Will you do it again?

Was it a lot of extra work for you to care for them?

Will you do it again?

Maybe one day, but no time soon. As cute as they are, the personalities of Milly and Roger changed during this process. I'm sure it is because they are being protective of the babies and each other. But I want my sweet birds back.

Was it a lot of extra work for you to care for them?

More frequent cage cleaning and more food, but not really "work" until we started handling the babies to get them used to our hands. We're still spending at least an hour, if not more, each day doing that. That takes time and their new owners will have to do it too.

:eek: Where did those itty-bitty-tiny babies go??? Such sweet pictures, Logan!! I love the close-up of Bennie -- you can see each feather so perfectly.

:) I could just stare at these pictures all night long. :o :D

Sooo cute, Logan. They've really become gorgeous birds.

I hope Aly gets to take Bennie! :D

Awwww they're full grown birds now! It's been wonderful to be able to join you via pictures and watch this new flock grow! :) What beauties...good job Milly & Roger (and Logan too) :D
