More New Hatchlings~

Now it truly feels like a real breeding season!

On a whim I decided to try to foster some eggs from Zebra Finch parents who aren’t very attentive when it comes to incubation.

And of course, Big Mama and Papa made it work! Four happy little squeaking babies hatched yesterday and I watched hatchling #5 inside their egg moving vigorously just now.

 

I also watched Big Mama and Papa tag teaming the newborns, with Papa regurgitating food to fill those crops and Big Mama encouraging their feces out. Gross, but very heart-warming and impressive to watch believe it or not. They’re definitely living up to their “fantastic foster” name! C:
