good day everyone. sorry i haven't been on. things have been quite
busy as we are nearing the end of our flip. the babies are doing
great. mom has finally stopped plocking them. tried taking dad and
babies away from her and dad screeched and screeched...very loud and
hard on the ears. the babies are going down to the food dishes. i
have been feeding other stuff besides just seed. broccoli and sweet
potatoes....eggs, peppers,little apple,brown rice....some
oatmeal...seem like they are trying to learn...anyway, my camera is
on the fritz so when i can i'll get pics...can't tell sexes unless
you go by attitude....then i think we have one of each....chat again
