 No these are not con-joined twin White-Crowned Pionus! These little babies are just very shy at this age and are stuck to one another like glue!


 Here are our two pretty baby "specially colored" Blue-Fronted Amazon chicks, nearly feathered on 6/18/02. The coloration of the chicks from their parent pair vary widely from year to year but
the chicks are always beautiful.

This baby Rose-Breasted Cockatoo is full of youthful exuberence on 6/18/02.

The colors of this baby Blue-Headed Pionus Parrot are quite lovely. The red on the forehead and green in the cheeks and neck areas are juvenile plumage coloration. The entire head will be blue after the bird's first feather molt.

Pionus make super family pets!

This is Apollo, a cheeky Blue & Gold Macaw



Apollo has a wonderful sweet personality and loves to flap his wings and exercise!

 This is a pile 'o Pionus Parrots- White-Crowned and Maximillian- photographed on 6/19/02.

 What a lovely bunch of baby Amazons!
One baby Tres Maria and four baby
Panama Amazons pose charmingly on 6/18/02. We are quite partial to Amazons here and these babies are very beloved.

The Tres Maria is trying to talk already.

 This is a "passle of Pionus" as I was taught to say, growing up in the southern U.S. These babies are as tame as puppies!



Weaning baby cockatoos frolic in the nursery on 6/21/02

This baby Yellow-Thighed Caique, on 6/21/02, has just discovered that there is a big world outside of his nursery box! Caiques love to go
exploring in the nursery as soon as they learn to climb out of the box!

On 7/16/02, the baby Caique phototograped on 6/21, has fledged and turned into a nursery explorer!

Aha, there are there's the food!

The baby Caique loves to sit on the head
of Chelo, our nursery manager.

Pobrecito, these babies are always hungry!

Yellow-Thighed Caique chicks on 7/17/02

 Three baby Congo African Greys are weaning on 7/18/02. These babies are delightfully curious and extremely personable!

We have a number of gorgeous
Bronze-Winged Pionus Parrots weaning now. These babies are exquisitely colored!

specially-colored Blue-Fronted Amazon

 A baby Yellow-Faced Amazon is pin-feathered on 7/18/02 but will soon be covered in beautiful plumage. This uncommon species makes a great pet! They are more similar in personality to Pionus than to Amazons. They are relatively quiet like Pionus and have calm, even personalities.

 These two fat baby Blue & Gold Macaws are always ready to eat! These babies are a month of age and growing by leaps and bounds.


 This is Sydney, a baby female Blue & Gold who is already sold and is starting to wean now! She loves to flap her wings!



hand-feeding baby Black-Headed and Yellow-Thighed Caiques
cavorting in the nursery

 Once the baby Caiques are fully feathered, they become very curious and begin to wander around the nursery looking for adventure!

Caiques are very playful and precocious
and absolutely adorable!

 We have two baby Hyacinths hatched 7/18 and 7/20/02 hand-feeding now.
These babies will wean in about six months and have a lot of growing to do!

 This is a Yellow-Faced Amazon chick that will start to wean soon. We have been working with this uncommon species for many years and can now offer them as pets, although they are still quite rare. They have a good talking ability and a calm demeanor and make great pets.

 This baby Noble Macaw is between three and four weeks of age and is pin-feathering. We are very pleased to have new bloodlines in Noble Macaws this year. This subspecies is much less common in the United States than is the nominate species, Hahn's Macaw,

 This baby Blue & Gold Macaw is between six and seven weeks of age. It takes a few weeks for the large macaws to completely grow in their long feathers. Large macaw species are fully feathered by eleven to twelve weeks.

 These delightful pin-feathering babies are a Hahn's Macaw at left and a Noble Macaw on the right. The Noble is a subspecies of the nominate species Hahn's Macaw.

 These cute baby Sun Conures are hand-feeding in the nursery on 8/14/02. The baby at right was photographed on 7/30/02 and again on 8/14/02 (shown on the right below).


 What a darling baby! This baby Hyacinth
Macaw is sound asleep on 8/14/02.
Even the camera's strobe did not disturb this chick's slumber! It's thick dark down feathers are just coming in and this baby will be covered with thick down in another week. At nearly a month of age, this baby has at least five more months before it will be fully weaned.
