Re: My Bourkes

What buurd said!

And... your Bourkies are beautiful. So delicately colored. I love their expressive little faces - just mischievous and so lively.

My two birds look like yours; rosy & grey pebbling. They also have the baby blue down on their undersides.

How long have you had these 3 guys?

It's my hope that my birds will one day feel comfortable enough to not have to watch for hands and scoot away. But I dont know that that might be too much to ask of them.
Before me, they had 2 years with a crappy owner, so wonder if its not going to take 3 years now, for them to be completely comfortable.
But that's just human math, used to calculate when you bounce back from a break-up. I have no idea about how birds do their math ;p

Re: My Bourkes

Great pictures and adorable birds!



Your writing is better than many students attending American high schools (and I am an American, so I can say that lol). Honestly though, your posts have been very clear and I wouldn't have assumed that you were not a native speaker (had you not posted the disclaimer)
Bird math has no formula other than exponential time....and patience...You are right to over-estimate (at least that way, your will be pleasantly surprised if they beat your time estimates).

I've had them 4 years. The male is a half year shorter with us because we thought Fela was a male

Re: My Bourkes

I found my favorite pic of babies. It was taken during cleaning their nest box (here the photo is darker)

I’m so glad you started this thread for your Bourke’s - such happy, intelligent little faces they have

I've never had birds before and I wasn't aware of how expressive they are with their eyes. It's amazing to me. And yes; they are all adorable

Re: My Bourkes

I see pictures don't work longer. They are in my private forum album. Here is the latest photo taken yesterday - 2-5 days old bourkes chicks
