My Birds Are Weird - Communal Nest, Babies With 1 Papa and 2 Mamas

Newly Hatched Baby Conure


Last week we had the first of our green cheek conure babies hatch.  Since this photo was taken 6 more of the 13 eggs have hatched. Our birds here at the loonyverse are a little bit unusual, they would have to be to live with us. First of all conures are usually monogamous forming lifelong pair bonds. Petrie,Tiki and Hotrod are all bonded to each other. It started before Tiki and Hotrod moved in with us when they still lived with Casey.  

The first time Tiki saw Petrie it was love at first site, for her. Think Pepe Le Pew but with birds. Petrie was very much a people bird back then and for the most part wasn't as into Tiki as she was into him. Then Casey got Hotrod and he and tiki where inseparable. But any  time they came over TIki still wanted very much to be with Petrie. Eventually  it worked out so Tiki and Hotrod had to live with us, and the three of them became a unit.  Fast forward a few months and i slipped up on my diligence in finding nesting sites and getting rid of them and we have eggs. Turns out Tiki and hotrod are both girls and Petrie is a boy.  Also instead of each having separate nests, Tiki and Hotrod share a single nest, which from everyone I've talked to is unheard of.  

And now, they’re hatching.

Which brings me to another strange thing about my birds.  I am also currently watching Kyra’s husbands conure Isaac. Initially Hotrod didn't like the new baby when they got him for Christmas,  but they get along great now. So well in fact that instead of being chased off as an interloper, Isaac helps care for the babies. He helps them sit on them and also helps Petrie to feed the girls and the babies, which is good because otherwise I don't know if they would get all the babies fed. But I’m happy to say all of the babies are getting fed even the newly hatched ones which might otherwise get pushed out of the way by the bigger ones

That's all for now. I'll have another post next week when I have to start pulling the babies for hand feeding. I should have more pictures by then as well. Right now though it seems that they know every time I'm bringing in the camera and Hotrod wants to kill it. I”m trying to stress them out as little as possible so the pictures can wait till I pull them for hand rearing so they can make wonderful pets.

  19. When I was young, people used to tell me that cleanliness was next to godliness. I suspect that when the phrase was used in a sermon by John Wesley in 1791 it was referring to the cleanliness of the mind and not a person's body or surroundings. But people still promote cleanliness as being important and especially around the home.

    Working in the cleaning industry for nearly 20 years has given me the chance to see inside many people's homes. I have seen properties so clean that you feel scared to walk into the place and the complete opposite where it is difficult to find a path through the rooms.

    I will admit that the people who live amongst the clutter are embarrassed to show me around, but they are quite happy to live in those conditions. I don't believe these people are lazy and don't clean, because their kitchens and bathrooms are not filthy. They clean the areas where hygiene is necessary, but are hoarders and cannot discern what should and should not be thrown away.

    In the meticulous house where everything sits in its prescribed place the home owner is a person who can't stand living in a mess. This doesn't make them a better cleaner than they person who lives amongst clutter, it just means they work harder at keeping their home clean.

    Now of course these two scenarios I have described are the extremes. Most people survive happily somewhere in between, and plod along trying to keep their home in a reasonably clean condition. Some will ritually clean every week, others will do it when they can't stand the dust and dirt any more. But what is the happy medium and how often should you clean?
