Baby Budgie Spreads Her Wings

I hope you can see this video: it was taken before we removed the three unhatched eggs. The large bumps under the baby's neck are her crop: very full! I hope you can also appreciate the buddha stomach she has. She is trying to spread her wings, although her eyes are not yet open!

Amazing! The infant's pinfeathers are darling! And she obviously gets a wonderful feeling from touching her Mom, while being fed.

it is really sweet to see the apparent affection between the two. clearly, love and affection are darwinian advantages. not to mention adorable. i sure hope she/he makes it!
