They're here!

The baby cockatiels were born on Friday and Monday and are doing great. They're so ugly they HAVE to be cute. The other three eggs won't hatch, but we're leaving them in the nest box so they don't start laying again right away. Zeke and Roscoe are excellent parents, both take turns feeding and warming the babies. No names yet. It was a little scarier process than I thought it would be, and I'd be happy with NO more babies. It's just too stressful!

K, I'm off to look for fun Halloween cupcake ideas...have a great week!
