 This is as close as any of our birds has gotten
to a chicken! This baby Hyacinth loves his
new chicken toy that crows and dances to the chicken song that it plays! 3/10/03

This little Rose-Breasted Cockatoo is almost completely feathered in April/03
at five weeks of age. It will be weaned in about another five weeks. Rose-Breasted Cockatoos live in an arid environment in the wild in Australia
and their babies wean very quickly. Ten weeks is the
average weaning period for Rosies.

These baby Tres Maria Amazons are showing a lot of
color at an early age!

The older baby is only seven weeks of age in this photo and will
get a lot more yellow coloring in the coming years.

 Baby Poicephalus in the nursery in 3/03. Shown are Ruppell's, Meyer's Senegals, and Orange-Bellied Senegal Parrots.

 Here is a pinfeathering Umbrella Cockatoo baby on 4/27/03. These babies take about four months from hatching to completely wean.

 What a cutie! A precocious Slender-Billed Cockatoo chick on 4/27/03

 8 week old Tres Marias Amazon baby on 5/6/03

 Two baby "Specially-colored" Blue-Fronted Amazons are showing beautiful colors on 5/6/03. It is fun to see the development of the pin-feathers for clues to the future
feather coloration of the chicks-
each one is different!
