Diary as of 6/30 – 7/2/08
This morning at 5.20 they were fighting on the balcony again after Pete returned from his night sleep – so I took the water sprayer and put an end to it – all 3 of them flew away to another balcony where I hope that they stopped fighting.
I decided to take the sprayer each time when they start fighting again – I don’t want them to injure themselves.
It seems that they are not quite angry at one another because during the day they often sit side by side or fly all 3 of them together (because one is with the babies). Must be the hormones but I may be wrong (I was wrong as it turned out later).
I also examined Winnie and Jimi (the new babies) – both are in perfect health so it seems. They seem to develop a bit differently than the early spring babies – both can open their eyes already and that after 3/2 days. And they already feep. But the feathers seem to grow slower if I compare the pictures of the spring babies with these now. Also the new babies seem to have more of these fine “hair feathers” than the former. Must be the difference in temperature.
Today I saw Pete feeding Winnie for the first time!
Well – this is the doctor’s couch……….
