Re: November 2019 POTM Contest

Still just for fun:
After death of Limonka we bought Bourkes. In 2017 Fela and Jaś had first babies (named later Luna and Klaudia), unfortunetely one of them passed away this summer. Here they are in their nest box:


Here is one of them after leaving the nest box:

They have had few clutches. The latest one was this year but is going to be one of the most remebered because it was the first time when... Fela and Jaś gave up raising their babies They were 2 weeks old, I hadn't had any hand-raising experience but I did it. Here, on the vid I think they were about 3 weeks old
Unfortunetely, one of them passed away after finishing hand-raising
My official entry:
... but my official entry is Zenek. Then he was the first day here - July 1st 2016. Also, this is his the 1st photo

They had one babie named Green. I'm sure my dad took few photos of him but we were searching and searching but unfortunetely we couldn't find them Probably they were deleted Also, we couldn't really find any pics of his parents except so bad quality photos from my first phone. Here are few of them:
Limonka (left) and Szafirek (right) together:


Limonka "riding" an eagle

Szafirek:

During the searching we found only one better (but still not the best) quality photo of them:

Unfortunetely Szafirek became ill and died on December 23th 2013. About half year later we made a mistake buying a mirror for Limonka. A budgie in the mirror became her new "partner" and this was her whole word - only she and her mirror She also laid two eggs (the 1st one was in the Szafirek's death anniversary). On January 2015 she also passed away. Then I was in a hospital and was coming back the next day after her death

In the next post will be photos related to current fids
Rozalka, Limonka and Szafirek were so pretty! I'm so sorry you lost them both, and that you were in the hospital when Limonka passed. I'm really glad you were able to find these pictures to share.

I am loving all your pictures, and the video of Karmienie being fed is so precious. The picture of Zenek is adorable as well, he looks so curious at what you're doing.

Rozalka, that hand feeding video brought back so many memories, my mother used to hand raise birds when I was young. They are just so adorable, I loved all the pictures too.

Re: November 2019 POTM Contest

This is another just for fun.

This is Lucky, a baby budgie I found in a box on the road a couple years ago. He died just a couple months after I found him.
I had hand fed him for a little bit after saving him, then he was housed with Opal and Elvis before Opal was moved to Jordan's cage.
When Opal was moved back in with Lucky just a month or two (don't quite remember) after separation, Opal killed Lucky. I never housed her with another budgie out of fear of losing another one like Lucky.

Lucky was a beautiful boy, I'm so sorry that he died too soon.

Re: November 2019 POTM Contest

I'll get started with a few Just For Fun entries from the Rickeybird Scrapbook. I'll wade into the old photo albums before picking a final entry. Thanks for this opportunity to rack up brownie points with the Missus, Terry. I'll be sitting pretty after this. Oh but of course my real motivation is that it's just such a genuine pleasure to showcase the Bird's terrific history. What a fine old fellow he is indeed. A fine fellow.
------------------------
------------------------
About 1984................ before my time, back when my lovely Missus and her rooster had their kingdom high on a hill in New Mexico. He was about a year old, I will estimate.

---------------------------
---------------------------
His debut in primitive social media at the tender age of a few years.

----------------------------
----------------------------
The Bird's birthday sometime in the early 1990s............................ he would have been 8-9.

----------------------------
----------------------------
Ho ho ho. Enough said.

----------------------------
----------------------------
The Missus, the Rickeybird, and a pile of Bird Talks and American Cagebird magazines in the late 90s, maybe. zhe would have been 30-something, and I was... older.

----------------------------
----------------------------
The two roosters are entrenched in their quest for dominance in the hen house................... a few years ago.

---------------------------
---------------------------
And then we found this Community a few years ago. Here is the infamous Skype session when Al hosted a little whoop-de-do on Salty's first birthday. Salty showed off his skills and Rickey showed his butt.

---------------------------
---------------------------
Thanks for looking, everybody.
