    My Birds


    These are pictures of all the birds I keep as pets!

    Photo Album - My Birds

    Button Quails
    (Hatched in August 2010)

    Taquito
    Silver
    (Hatched: August 2010)
    Taquito was always my favorite. When he hatched, I noticed that he was never as active as the others. Then I realized it was because he was blind in one eye. He was very calm around me and he loved to be held.

    Gir
    Wild Type
    (Hatched: August 2010)
    She laid lots of eggs and incubated a few clutches. She wouldn't take care of the chicks so I would have to take care of them for her. Near the end of her long life, she began changing color and developed male color patters! It was strange!

    Doom (Passed)
    Blue Faced
    (Hatched: August 2010)
    Doom flew away when she was very young, but she came back! After that, she had 2 clutches of chicks. One clutch she hatched herself but killed 2, so I took the rest of the chicks. She died of old age at 4.

    Button (Passed)
    Cinnamon
    (Hatched: August 2010)
    Button was cute, but he became aggressive with the other male I had. I had to sell him, so I don't know how he is now.

    Peepi (Passed)
    Darth Vader
    (Hatched: August 2010)
    Peepi was another favorite because of his colors. However he was always very nervous and ran back and forth in the cage all the time. He died after being attacked by Button, my other quail.
