    I got a pair of Green cheek Conures 5 months ago, I just love them. They are sweet and cute and fun to watch. I put their nest box in not too long ago and they laid 6 eggs. I candled them about a week and a half ago and 5 were developing. So far I have 4 babies and I just candled the last egg yesterday and its still growing!

    Here is mom and dad

    and the babies though they are not the cutest just yet!

    Oh my goodness! Congrats on the babies, they're adorable. Their parents are so beautiful too. Are you going to try hand feeding them?

    Your birdies are beautiful! Love the picture of them sharing their food. Congrats on your little pink blobs. It's amazing how small and helpless they are at hatch. I hung a plastic bowl in the cage with a pair of my keets and now have 3 little pink blobs too. I am wondering what color they will be. The mom is bright normal green and the dad is violet with a little white.

    Those are so cute. Not so much as babies. [​IMG] Amazing how something like that turns out so colorful. I make the parrot diapers on ebay so I've been getting to see a lot of different types of parrots and conures. This lady even sent me a pic of her parrotette. I bought some adult parakeets for my daughter and they were so mean we finally got rid of them. I guess the key to to hand feed them from babies. I don't think these had ever been messed with at all. Thanks for sharing those pic. [​IMG]
