    I know they aren't peafowl, but I did find them and a dead parent (killed by rat) in with my adult peas, so it's sort of peafowl related. [​IMG] .

    Baby pigeons.

    Hahaha awesome! Wow they really are heavier! Looks like you know your stuff about helping baby birds! I wish I knew how to do that since theres a lot of nests in our palm tree and every year a few chicks fall out!! What are you feeding them?

    I just weighed them again and they're up to 90 grams! Right now they are being tube fed a mixture of Kaytee Baby Bird Food and Pedialyte.

    Wow!! Great job! I rescued a baby Magpie a few years ago, and it grew up to be a big beautiful bird. Please keep us updated on these little cutes, and keep up the good work!

    A Magpie, that would be fun. Ian Tyson, a Canadian Cowboy does a song called Magpie, you should check it out.
