Wow, those are beautiful. How much time per day does it take to feed, water and otherwise take care of that many birds? Are most of them tame enough to handle or do they not like to be touched?

I am intrigued.

Daily, it's not too bad. It takes about 30 minutes in the morning to change the food bowls, chop vegetables and change water dishes.

The indoor birds require floor sweeping 3-4 times an hour, when i'm home. Just because i hate seeing seeds all over the floor.

Once a week, I clean cages and that's about a 1/2 day project. In fact, i'm just starting to clean the indoor cages now. yuck.

NOT Tame!! they're all breeders and are quite aggressive, especially when they are on eggs/chicks.

Herbs however is very sweet and tame. But he's only 12 months old and just weaned. His girlfriend is now 5 days old!

I will take some photos of them after the 20th. My camera went on vacation last night (lent it to my little cousin).

I'll also take some photos of the blue yellow-nape pair.

In the meantime, here are photos of the birds taken by the person I bought them from.

Beautiful, the photo of the Blue Grey is the same one I got permission to use in my book, nice to know who the owner is.

There is a lady in Florida, who breeds one Blue per clutch from a sibling pair

Nothing cuter than baby birds--not puppies, kittens, or cubs.

Sorry I am working nights this week, so I have not been too active lately...Yes Blue Greys, I will email her and ask if I can forward her email address to you...it should not be a problem as she has questions about pricing etc.
