Hello, my name is Zara, it has been 41 days since I last spent more than 1 hour out of the house. I think I'm going cuckoo... Me and my man walked to a local restaurant for dinner and as soon as I got home I change into snuggly pj's so Adélie can snuggle in to his favourite spot.

He's the cutest. I just wanted to share how adorable he is.

He's now 6.5weeks old but so small still, his brothers (1day older) are already flying and have now weaned onto solid food but Adélie is still having 4 formula feeds a day.
He doesn't like sleeping in his nest, he cries, he only likes to sleep on me... I think he actually thinks I'm his mum :(

He's just a little fuzzy fluffy ball of sweetness, I have to share how adorable he is with the world ❤

@Ripshod He was originally to go to my boyfriends pal. The first 2 were for my friend, the second 2 for his.

By day 21 I had fallen in love and was thinking up excuses to not hand him over. I had already observed that he was growing super slowly. His friend later backed out. It was bittersweet. I had my baby, but I also had a homeless baby and I couldn´t keep both.

Luckily there was a happy ending.❤

@sunnysmom @Tiel Feathers thanks :) He´s a little warrior

He's enchanting! If someone had been asked to draw the cutest baby bird they could imagine, they'd come up with Adélie. He's like something out of a Disney movie. Except that photo of him at a couple of days old...that's more Jurassic Park :)

Funny, thats what my mates on facebook said about Nube and Lapis. I cut back posting pics of the chicks this time on social media after my issues with facebook last time flagging me for posting ¨porno pics¨... :(
If i post that story here I´ll tag you in it

Such a lovely Adélie :xflove:

I get into worried mother hen mode whenever I am raising chickens, and chickens are much more independent. I always want to give them stable and loving upbringings. It is a lot of work.

I couldn't imagine how difficult it is to raise a young parrot.

It is breeders like you who make the rest look better. You take the time to evaluate & do what’s right for your babies - instead the money. Keep on flying high @Zara & I’m sure Adelie will have a wonderful life :heart:

Adorable and so dainty. Birds just dont come any cuter.
Thanks guys, he´s the sweetest... I Know we all say that about all of our birds hehe

There has been a lot of worrying - waking up in the night and panicking. That gut wrenchng moment before checkin on him and hoping he hadn´t fallen to the bottom of the pile of chicks or worse :(

hehe

Where I live these birds cost less than a pizza. So it was extra worrying and difficult to find a home for the third chick. I´d listed him online but I didn´t feel good about the people contacting me. So I removed the adverts.
I gifted the 3 birds I gave away. So I didn´t make 0, I made minus, plus all my time. but It´s ok. They are in good homes and I can keep in contact with all 3 birds, Petin, Saatchi and Blue.

In saying this, Aldora won´t be keeping any more chicks for now. I can´t keep anymore, and I don´t want to go through the ordeal of looking for homes.
Maybe when I move to a bigger house, but I´m at my limit at the moment. I wan´t her to have a super long break from laying while we can just enjoy her as a bird, not sat in her box all day not wanting to leave.


What was the happy ending? Do you get to keep him? I hope so!
Aye, he´s staying. That was for sure from early days for me. I knew I wasn´t going to let him go. But I waited and let my man suggest it, he reads me so well ;)

Thanks @Dona they are my family.

I´ve always thought of myself as a dog person. I´ve always had dogs around me, and never thought that there could be a day where I won´t have a dog in my family.
But over the years with my birds, I´ve have changed how I am labelling myself. I know that when the dreaded day comes and I lose my beloved Jacob, it will destroy me. And I can´t imagine bringing another dog into my home. I just don´t see it happening. I feel like, that will be when my life shifts, and I will probably only ever have birds in my home. ❤
