Babies and mutations...

Despite the disappointing gouldian season, there are still quite a few new babies in the aviary.  All the society babies are big enough to close band.  Can't wait until they all fledge.  The owl babies are no more, unfortunately.  Both died with full crops and without any obvious trauma, so not sure what happened.  Canaries lost their fledgling, also for unclear reasons, but are now raising a new baby.  The white javas took over the gouldian style nest box in their flight and are raising a family.  Sea green red faced parrot finches have weaned their brood of 3 and are sitting on 4 fertile eggs.  I don't think my new turquoisine hen likes my male so far.  Hopefully they'll bond as time passes.
