Three-Week-Old Lady Gouldian Finches

These five Lady Gouldian finch babies hatched three weeks ago today. Their feathers are almost completely in, but bright adult colors are about six months away. They get cuter every day.

They are very mellow and not afraid of me. Sometimes even ask
to be fed. Two of them were hand fed a couple of times, so maybe
they remember it? Sweet little ones. They have good first-time parents.
All our other birds are still resting from last year. They'd like to get busy and raise more youngsters of their own, but I want the hens to be strong and well-recovered before letting them go back to rearing again. Maybe in another month or so their nest boxes will go back up.

Peace & Blessings.

They probably think of you as "The Bird Lady" but must wonder when you will feather-up.
