|Mom and Dad Lady Gouldian finch, babies under them.|
|They liked the shredded paper best for nest material.|
|Their first clutch was five, second clutch was six.|
|Five not long from leaving the nest.|
|Fledged and healthy. Colors will change in time. |
They all love the swing.
|Out of the nest and eating on their own. |
Still have spots at edges of their mouths.
These below were raised in an incubator and hand fed to adulthood.
|These two hatched in an incubator. Photo taken shortly after hatching.|
|Closer shot of two brand new babies. Other eggs weren't fertile.|
|Growing. Stuffed full of hand feeding formula|
just as their parents would have stuffed them full.
|Showing my feathers coming in.|
|An earlier shot before pin feathers started. We've gone|
from looking like little worms to looking like little frogs.
|A crop feeder would be a better device than an eye dropper|
with these little guys, but I used what I had.
|We're flying on our own, but love being friendly.|
|A hand feeding. We still sleep in a box at this stage, but|
can fly really well. Continued hand feeding for two more weeks.
