I can only admire that in the middle of all of that destruction, you still can take contructive action and once again make a few of lives better.

Keeping my fingers crossed for the underdoggy- lots of healing for all of you!

Re: Aviary Life

I leave tomorrow morning for a short trip home so my parents can get a family photo with all 12 kids (won’t include children in law or grand children) before my brother deploys and my sister leaves for Guatemala for a few months.

My husband says to me in a whisper “I am going to feed your birds every. Single. Day.”

Most romantic thing he has ever said to me! Hahahaha!

Re: Aviary Life

Sick cockatiel is still alive and has been named “Gideon” because I asked my husband “who is someone who was super pathetic and then became awesome?”

Re: Aviary Life

Welcome to the world little angels
Emmalani (mother) is blue and Lochinvar (father) is turquoise so we should get about half of each color

Re: Aviary Life

My genetics are a bit wobbly when it comes to all those glorious feathercolours, so they are either going to look like mum or like dad?
No blending of the colours?

Re: Aviary Life

Blue (recessive) is the gene that removes all the yellow from a green bird. Turquoise is a gene that brushes some but not all of that yellow back into a blue bird (co-dominant with blue, recessive in green). So they will be either or unless dad carries two of the turquoise genes then all the babies will be turquoise.

Here are some photos that show the color differences, including how turquoise acts when combined with other mutations
