Photos Compliments of Others
This baby Splendid was rescued and is being hand fed by Debbie in San Diego. Not all new parent birds realize they must feed their young. My first clutch of three Splendids went unfed and died before I knew what to do about it. Fortunately for this little guy, Debbie did know what to do and he's progressing well.
With my birds, the second clutch with the same parents did fine. They hatched three of their four eggs and raised all three. This pink cage is another example of a nice travel (or transition) cage.
The photo below is of a "Rainbow" Bourke parakeet, another color mutation. This bird was bred in Australia. Visit "Visual Wings" on the internet to see more attractive grass parakeet photos. http://www.grassparakeet.com/index.htm
