Re: Sunny and Polita

After a couple of days of hand feeding, the boys are gaining weight and doing just fine. They know Merlin's voice and start chirping when they hear it and are hungry, as he does most of the feeding. They have pretty much conquered the syringe, but are a bit messy. Any suggestions on bathing them? I think they need one, but don't want them to get chilled. Jackie's head has just about healed, but he has a bald spot there, poor guy. Feathers are all gone. I'm sure they will eventually grow back.

Re: Jack and Bobby

The chicks continue to gain weight and are becoming more active. They are starting to play together and preen each other a bit. Given half a chance, Booby will make a beeline for the waiting syringe, but he doesn't quite know what to do with it without a little guidance. The parents aren't so freaked out as when we first took the boys away. They are starting to come out of the cage a bit now. They are most interested and curious about the chicks, but I'm not sure how much the parents put together about them. It has been an interesting time.

Re: Sunny and Polita

Updated pics "merlin" ... make your magick happen!

Saw two other baby suns the other day ... one was a Sunday and the other was a Red-Factor Sun Conure ... didn't look much different than a regular baby sunnie to me, but I guess, like any sun, their true plumage doesn't come out until like 18 months old or so ...

Re: Jack and Bobby

Here is one of the latest pix. This is the last pic that they will let me put up with a post. I'll have to check out the gallery and see what I can put up there, if you guys want to see more of the boys. If the gallery won't work for me, I'll just have to send you to another URL on which I will upload pix of them. I'm not too savvy on that, but I can learn, I'm sure. The boys are doing fine and growing like weeds. We are starting to introduce semi-soft food, but they really don't know what to do with it yet.

Re: Jack & Bobby

Check out more pix of J & B in the Photo Gallery under nimuemerlin. I'll be posting them there from now on, I guess.

Re: Jack & Bobby

The chicks are doing fine. Little Jackie is starting to climb up the sides of his cage. He accidentally walked off the edge of the bar trying to get Merlin yesterday. Merlin was terrified, but Jackie just opened his wings and drifted down to the floor. No harm done at all. Both Jackie and Bobby are getting more mobile and vocal. They are actually like little sun conures now. We think they are a miracle.

Re: Jack & Bobby

Merlin put a couple of perches down low in the cage and put the boys on them. They are still wobbly and uncoordinated, but they can get get up and down on them and stay on them fairly well. They think they are big boys now on their perches! Merlin took the nesting box out and we've put in away for the time being. I'll be posting some pix of them on their perches soon. Merlin noticed that Jackie is a little lame in his right foot, but it doesn't slow him down too much. He is walking and climbing everywhere. We'll monitor this, but that foot is definitely different. I don't know how to describe it.
