Please meet baby Peanut, offspring of Pepper and Parfait. Pepper and Parfait are siblings and are the daughter and son of my beloved Traveler and FanFan. Some of the family background can be gleaned here: Family Tree



Pepper and Parfait are first time parents and did OK with Peanut for the first few days. I found Peanut way far away from Pepper and Parfait this morning and saw that s/he had been slightly pecked on the top of the wings by the other birds. Not wanting to take a chance with this precious little bird, I removed Peanut at least for the day and night and am considering moving Pepper and Parfait to a private abode with Peanut until Peanut is grown. We'll see how things go.

Peanut isn't exactly an oops baby as I did notice that Pepper and Parfait had paired up and made a nest and laid two eggs. I guess I just decided that what would be would be. Turns out only one egg hatched, and the lovely little Peanut is here with us now.

I'm glad to have another little part of Traveler with me!

Ohhhhhhhhhh...golly...


So are you handing out 'Pink' Banded Cigars? Or 'Blue' Banded ones?


I myself let a not-exactly-oooops Baby occur a while back...such a joy to have 'peeping' going on again!

s/he is adorable, as all babies are. Trying to separate the family from the others may be a good idea. Hope it helps, and you don't have to raise her. Please update us as Peanut grows.

Bet you'll miss the feedings! LOL. Well maybe sometimes! Good excuse to handle such a cute little ball of feathers.
