Re: Baby tiel hatching way ahead of schedule!

Was that just recently you thought about giving up the breeding?

Re: Baby tiel hatching way ahead of schedule!

No I actually quit back in 2001 and then doing just a few pairs at a time in 2011 until now. I was just told by my partner yesterday that I need to find the babies home as I just did $600 food and product purchase for the animals not long ago. And our weekly grocery to buy their fresh food as we buy them twice a week to keep everything fresh. We do not pre-made them to freeze as everything is made fresh and fed fresh. And I order water filters as we go through filter water for all, I'm drinking tap....lol

Re: Baby tiel hatching way ahead of schedule!

Do you breed Macaws as well? If I lived in America I'd buy some of your babies
When I first got Rocky, my husband was admitted to hospital seriously ill. He almost didn't make it. Rocky was my first pet bird and hand feeding him was a distraction for me and made the time more bearable. Since then I'm now obssesed with tiels and have 5 of them!! I look back at photos of Rocky when he was a baby and pics on here, that's why I want to breed them one day I will never allow Rocky to breed though.

Re: Baby tiel hatching way ahead of schedule!

OMG that baby is adorable it looks like an Easter marshmallow peep!

It is a hefty investment at first but we purchased a Berkey water filter, they are attractive, come in different sizes to meet your needs and truly make the best water I have ever drank! The black filters can last up to 10 yrs and the white ones 1 to 2 yrs depending on use. I did a lot of research and these rocketed to the top in customer reviews! There is a test a guy did on you tube putting ditch water through it and it came out crystal clear. They are impressive, I now use that water for everything, for humans, parrots both drinking and misting and the dogs now get their water filtered too!

Re: Baby tiel hatching way ahead of schedule!

Iabell,

My dogs and cats all get filtered water as my girl got kidney stone on Christmas day the year before. So after that I put everyone on filtered water. I didn't sleep all night laying by my girl in the living room constantly putting her outside. She was not feeling good. I called the vet as soon as they open the next day at 7am. So I rushed Alexis to the vet and Rocco the other husky decided he wanted to explore the house since he gets upset if Alexis isn't around. He went to my computer room and had diarrhea on my rug and step in it and track it through the house. So after coming home from the vet I'm washing rugs and disinfect the floors through out the whole house on my hands and knees. I was super mad since I had no sleep the night before and then deal with that mess after getting home. My partner came home and said well the floor is clean and laughed. I was even more ticked after that cause I spent 4 hours cleaning by that time....lol.....anyway Alexis is on prescription diet and drinking filtered water.

Re: Baby tiel hatching way ahead of schedule!

(((Doing the little girlie gasp squeal)))) ... followed up with the old "valley girl talk" UH! NOOO .... WAYYYY!!! LOLOL!!

If that isn't the cutest thing I've ever seen! Soooo ADORABLE!!!

I honestly never knew tiels weren't hatched totally naked like pictures of newly hatched parrots I've seen.

How the heck do you even pick up sucha little gem?? I'd be terrified of breaking it!

CONGRATULATIONS!! And keep us updated with progress photos...Please..((batting my eyelashes and giving you the innocent sweet smile))
