Collin and Astrid's fourth chick hatched, and we finally got one with plum colored eyes. That means it will be cinnamon. We should be expecting about half of these chicks to be cinnamons, and they can be either gender, since Astrid is cinnamon and Collin is split to it.
You can also see that a Bourke's parakeet hatches with a fuzzy coating of white down. The one on the right has so much on its head, that it looks like a Mohawk!
This year we are going to try something new. Our Hatching and Growing page is going to be in the format of a blog.
