During the heatwave last week, I had to bring these eggs inside because they would have broiled outside. I put dud eggs under the parents but they didn't fall for it and quit sitting so now I have to handfeed from day one.

These are the first two (one more egg). They are one day and two days old.





And this is mom and dad:

I'd be so scared of taking care of them. I'd mess something up.

However, Lien's a pro, so these chicks will grow up nice and healthy!

Yes, the adults are on a commercially made nectar mix (Lory Life). The chicks get half handfeeding formula (Roudy Bush #3) and half Lory Life nectar.

Oh wow Lien! Amazing pictures! We have been looking at birds more often when we find new pet stores lol. I know I know, buy from breeders!! BUT we enjoy looking more often and someday we will research them.
I agree, so completely scary to feed and care for them! I hope they do well and grow fast for you! I'd love to see more pictures!!!!

Your Lories are spectacular! Too bad that they figured out the egg switch. Good luck with those chicks. You must be very dedicated to them!:clap:
