    They have such pretty faces. Hope they keep feeding the babies, They were so cold sitting out in the pen, it was a bit chilly this am. Wanted some button quail, but the only ones I could find were pretty feather picked:(

    Looks like Turbits, sometime with the short beak you need to hand feed them,or use feeder pigeons.

    OMG, pretty little Old German Owls!!! They make excellent parents, and great pets too(although my breeding female will literally beat me out of the enclosure when she is nesting).

    They seem to be settling in pretty well, they did feed the babies earlier so I hope they keep doing so. In the spring I will probably have to build them a place in the garage.

    Looks like they are feeding them, just some of the other short beak breeds cant. african owls, Frills. Was guessing they were turbit could be owls. Several type of owls. Nice looking birds.
