    The time was due for buying another couple of chicks. I'll post pictures tomorrow. They very cutely weave between our feet wherever we go and are a lot friendlier than our previous purchases. It kind of makes walking difficult though with a couple of very small birds hanging onto your shoes... :lol:

    Their names are Silva (my choice - stands for something in french about nuclear power) and Peach (my mother's still on the food-name train for the third time)

    Thank you :D
    I still don't have pictures. Sorry. I was doing German homework for ages last night, after having realised I'd translated all the sentences into the wrong tense...

    :yuckyuck

    Past-self always finds ways to amuse me.

    I've got some pics of the little Silvas. Not so little anymore. Big Silva I jokingly say looks like a cloud, because it's very puffy :love

    Silva is facing the front. (I never get good pictures of them together)

    And, just for kicks, here's a nice pic of a rainbow from our garden.

    A cute one - under the water tank. (Blurry picture - it was a horrendous angle from which to take a picture)

    It's so adorable when those wee lil legs come leaping over the nettle bushes when it's time for feeding...

    Here are some more pics of Silva.

    I think the two of these together are a nice representation of the bird's rather sedate nature. :p Silva likes me so it moves fast when I come over with food, but usually she takes her time doing pretty much everything.

    Now you see it...

    Now you still see it...
