Aw...! I hope they stay this way. They're not flying yet, but they climb up my front and nestle under my chin. I've got to take a picture of it.

Those are your babies now, they have forgotten all about their birth parents.

The babies are flying now! They do a funny little helicopter flight, in which they kind of flutter and circle around a foot or so off the table. They also fly up off of me and land on my head! I can't help laughing when they do that! So far, no one has pooped in my hair, thank goodness!

Lovebirds grow very fast as you have seen first hand. I seriously doubt you would be willing to part with them anytime soon.

I've given them names, which means that I certainly can't part with them now!

In recognition of their beautiful, mostly green plumage and the fact that they are like precious jewels to me (I can wear them like a necklace!), their official names are:

Emerald, Jade, and Peridot.

Just refer to them as your "Little Diamonds".

just be careful with keeping too many birds because as time goes on those little babies will start mating and then you will have oodles and oodles of birds and it can get out of hand quickly . Good luck and those little gems are adorable .

Thanks for the advice! I sure don't need oodles of birds! The nine I have now is quite enough!

I've taken out the hollow coconuts that I had in the three cages for my adult birds, in hopes that will be a deterrent against further nest-making. So far, so good!
