    Hi

    After 4 long months we've just finished hand rearing our babies and today was their first time in a flight cage - they've loved it [​IMG]

    I thought it looked like my Toulouse when he hatched [​IMG]
    The parrot eggs are a lot bigger than I would have thought [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone. Yes we own the parents and they're now 10 years old and bred for the first time when they were 7 years old. In our Greenwing pair the male's HUGE!!! They do produce lovely big babies [​IMG]

    I am aso jealous. My dream is to one day own ONE of these guys. I want to either hatch an egg or at least handfeed her myself. You're super lucky.
