I took some more bad phone pics of the fluff heads........ its amazing how much they have grown they must have at least doubled in size....its mad....i will get pics next time of them next to an egg......!! nothing else has hatched yet and acording to my bad memmory and bad maths they probably wont now..... but leaving the eggs in there for now as they are good hot water bottles and they use them to hold there heads up like they have 2 each and flop their necks over the sort of egg cleavage :lol1:

big fluff head was a week old sort of last night



and little fluff head is a week old tomorrow... ish

shes been fab George..... im gonna take the other eggs out soon they are all swishy inside so not going to hatch.... and chickies are getting so big now i dont think they need the extra warmth from them when petal is out anymore.... they look bigger every day i cant believe the speed theyve grown and one of big fluff heads eyes is beginning to open.... Petal doesnt mind me picking them up when shes out but wont go back in the nest box if they arnt both in there .... shes started staying out a bit longer now and started eating a bit herself as well as jimmy feeding her ..... im dead chuffed with it all......!!

Jimmy has started feeding the babies too now...... he goes in the nest box just the same as Petal...... all 4 were in there yesterday....!!!

Big Fluff Head is quite big now..... he(?) can stand up a bit .... but his legs arnt very strong..... he has even started preening...!!!! you can just see his red cap beginning to show and the red behind his eyes.......Hes really got the look of his daddy about him...... he looks at you the same...... i noticed this am tho he has 2 tail feathers that look like theyre going to be green......












Little Fluff Head isnt so big ....she(?) has red coming too in the right places.....but she isnt any where near as strong...... her legs seem to be a bit out of control and sort of splay out way to far....... hopefully thats just cuz she needs to be stronger.... also Big keeps leaning on her..... but shes very cute...!!

Awwwwhhh!! Aren't they just the cutest things now?! I love it when they get to this stage, not so creepy looking!! :lol1: I swear my babies were never that fluffy though, they look like cotton wool!

Uhhh, legs thing... I wouldn't be too worried unless her legs stay wonky past the stage when she should be able to stand up by herself properly. What's in the bottom of the nest box? If there's not any/much bedding in there then that can cause splay-leggedness but I doubt that'll be it because otherwise the other one would be having problems too. I should think she'll sort herself out in a few days time full_of_it

Daisy do the makeup sponge on them..its how I have fixed splay legs...
http://www.parrotparrot.com/splay/
you dont want to wait too long, otherwise your baby could get worse...splay legs are the pits of an existence for a bird to live with.

if you have any questions just holler!! its worked very well for me using this exact treatment!!
