Feb 6,2007

Wow what a week. Cold, cold, cold and now it's snowing. Actually it warmed up a bit. It was too cold to snow. Looks like it's set in for the day. A nice light snow. One of those that sometimes you only get a dusting out of. This one looks like we will get an inch or two though. Of course it wouldn't bother Me or Mother Nature if it hung in there and gave us a nice insulation against the bitter cold. It would sure help the freezing pipes that Chicago has been handling. We haven't had any here cause mom has a secret way of handling that. I don't gripe about the faucets dripping. LOL.

Now for the feature of the week. Remember there were 9 eggs. Now we have 6. One baby did die while hatching. The egg was open and seemed to be stuck or it could be that it was just too weak to push on out. So again they had 3 hatch and this time kept 2 alive.
Bananas, there in yellow just loves when I open the nest box. He crowds over and gets a good look at the kids. He would sit and watch then for hours if I left it down and open. Lucy, there beside him, doesn't mind the attention either. She loves it open and trys to open the lid when it is hung up. Big brother Goose helps with keeping the little ones warm. He doesn't seem to mind sharing Mom and Dad. I have to be very attentive and quick when I open the door to the cage though, because he is a great excape artist and is very hard to get back in.
As you can see there are two babies this time. The larger one is 2 days older and a bit bigger, but surprizingly they double their size every day and soon we won't notice much difference.
