Inspired by the lovely Karnkates pictures of Boon Rod, I went searching my files for some old pics of the flock to compare to how they look since the first day until now.

Please share your own ¨Then and Now¨ pictures from the first day with your feathered companion and the most recent picture - Even if they are the same ;)
(If they were born in your home, then day 1 is the day they were pulled from the nest or the day they were handfed)


I´ll post in order of joining the flock :)

Day 1 - 15 June - Sydney

Day 1 - 20 June - Jaime

Day 1 - 15 June - Aldora
Ald.png

Day 1 - 14 June - Left Nube, Right Lapis Lazuli on both pictures.
(These two birds still had a lot of daily contact with their parents after being taken from the nest and still do.)

Day 3 - 30 May - Adelie

Just as cute as can be Zara. Two early photos of M&M. Murphy while he was still with the breeder and then the both of them the day they came into my life. You can see what a pip squeak Mickey was back then. Baby Murphy.jpg P1020305.jpg

No flight feathers back then thanks to the breeder.

Yes they have really changed. They were from different clutches. Murphy still is bigger and weighs more than she does but not by much. Thanks Zara for creating this thread.

Tau, when he first came to me:

And yesterday:

Now that Tau is beginning to bloom it's getting a little easier to look back at those pics. Sorry no fluffy baby photos, Tau was estimated to be @13 wks. :(

It´s not just about the baby pictures, it´s the change.
Look at the beautiful bird Tau has turned into! The way he´s stood on his door so proudly! Just look at his posture! :)

Take Aldora, another example, picture one on day one she is a fluffed up, scared, confused bird.... and picture two which was last week, she is full of confidence with a ¨get the hekk away from my cage¨ attitude ;)

The chick pics are just a bonus... ❤

Amazing how our birds have grown up to healthy, beautiful birds. Tau is so handsome and stands up straight as if to say "Im here"
Elly you budgies all look so happy not matter how old they are.
Diane Blu is gorgeous!

If you look at Mickeys cere color when she was a baby in the photo she looks very male I think. Her cere dramatically changed. Also she was what we call the runt of the clutch. Her feathers looked awful.
