This is 'Lucky' 3/4 days old, the latest addition, its the only survivor from 7 eggs laid. I left the pipette in the photograph to give you an idea of the size of the chick (about the size of my thumb nail) I had to hand feed it for a day when it was only 3/4 days old, its now a healthy chick and getting its feathers but still in its nest now being fed by its 'mum and dad'. Its been a real little toughy!!

The wee one that I hand fed for a day is just about ready to 'fly' from the nest and what did I find below it today?? 4 eggs (not laid by it of course Shame on you Applause )
Just looking forward to see it flying.
Guess all my good intentions of selling the young back to where I bought them from has gone 'out of the window' Just cant seem to part with them now- (Thinking I must separate the 'mum and dad' Think )
Emmy Very Happy

You are taking such good care of your birds, eggs and chicks, Emmy.
Have to show my mother your photos too.

Reminded me that I should get out and buy more sunflower seeds!

The birds here thank you for getting me to the store to feed them.

Dave

Hope to post some photos and 'book reports' soon.

You are going to have to open a pet store soon, Emmy - the best kind with someone who loves her birds and other animals.

Are you going to post pictures?

Thought of you today when I saw a rabbit in our neighbors' yard, and distracted Slug so he wouldn't see it. Stomping on the ground to get his attention, I looked over and the noise must have spooked the rabbit away. Slug never saw it and later was out front looking for Ebbie the black cat.

Later he was all the way back on the wooden posts laying at the lot line, looking at something. Rabbit safe though - called him anyway.

Have to keep all the other animals safe around here.

Emmy, Glad to hear of your success with the Finches. Pretty soon you will have to get a breeder's license!

(The 4 previous eggs laid in Feb. werent succesful only one hatched but died the next day- so sad but they laid another 4 eggs recently and thoose are the ones I'm writing about)
Well the 4th egg didnt hatch out but the three little chicks are doing fine and are being fed etc. My grandson got a lovely photograph of one of the chicks actually hatching out of the egg but for some reason I cant get it to upload to post it (he took it with his camera?/Ipod? or something like that then downloaded the pictures onto my computer but when I try to download it- it comes up with 'invalid picture' - once I get it sorted I'll post the photograph.
Must be doing something wrong tonight just couldnt get the other photographs downloaded either!?!
So I guess
you'll just have to take my word for it - Very Happy I think they are very cute and to me they are just another 3 little miracles.
My quails are still laying eggs every day and i was just reading tonight thet quails eggs are very good for your health, better than hens eggs, wished I had kept a note of the link about that If i find it again I'll post it well worth reading.
(Just a pity I wont eat the quails eggs Dancing )
Emmy Very Happy

Perhaps the photos are in a different format and you need a converter program. Just found out about docx vs. doc when I couldn't read a recipe a cousin sent. Luckily there were programs available. Very far behind in updating.

I showed my mother the photos of your zebra finches - she liked that of course. Will they get stripes later or are they a different type?

When you post the other photos I will show her

Thanks for the update. Ask your grandson why the picture won't post. I'm sure he should have an answer.

This is 'mum' with a mouthfull of nesting material and the 4 eggs that 3 hatched out from. She is a 'fawn' zebra finch.
I'll post this before I try to do another photograph
