I might ask, which one is T-Rex and who's Velociraptor? They always look like little dinos to me. Even Cheddar.

I had a friends baby cockatiel in with them for almost a week. That's the T-Rex. Always screaming for food. I expected the suns to be loud. These two are almost silent.

They are starting to get louder and more demanding. I think the one on the right is going to be the trouble maker. It's impatient and demanding when it's time to be fed. They've graduated from a brooder to a small cage. They are already climbing up on the perch. The little one is clumsy, but trying hard to keep up with its sibling. It hasn't quite figure out how those toes work yet. It keeps trying to do three in the front and one in the back, and then falls forward, but only with the left foot. When I place the toes the right way, it holds on just fine. Sometimes it gives up and just sits there with its head on the perch and takes a nap. I'm going to start putting seeds and pellets in see if they will have any interest. They are already putting their mouth on everything, so I don't see any problems when it comes time to wean.

Older one on the right - 6 weeks old today. Younger one on the left. The older one is almost fully feathered. Another week should do it. They are both a little more demanding when it comes time to eat and they will try their hardest to convince me that they are starving to death, just a few minutes after being fed. I open the cage and encourage them to come out on their own. They both get to the door, but can't figure out how to get down. However, when the big one decides its done eating, it crawls back into the cage and gets on a perch. So it can go in, but not out. I've put some small pellets in the cage, but neither seem interested yet. They look different every day, and they are getting fun to play with.
