Hi, I'm Emmilia! I love birds! I have some lovebirds, quails and a rescued finch at home. I love to find as many bird people as I can. Looking at other bird pets will make my day! :)

Nanny among her adopted babies…  I introduced her slowly to the flock. She still prefers hanging out with me to these babies. But she’s ok if I put her with the babies like this for a while. When she wakes up she’ll leave them to be with me again. The babies are quite tamed. They do step up and don’t mind me picking them up. Sometimes they all cuddle on my palm to take a nap but they prefer each other company to me. After meal/bath, they always hang out together playing on the gym or chirping on my window sills. Pipi always comes back to me after eating/taking a bath. She’ll ask for a head rub and sleep on my palm. If I’m busy painting, she’ll sleep on my finger with 1 foot lifted up undisturbed with me typing or pressing keyboards for shortcut. If she’s done taking a nap, she’ll play around my hand with her toothpick. She’s just unbelievable beyond sweet…!

Since some people have noticed my new birds on previous pics, I guess I should introduce them properly. So here are my 2 vegetarian owls: Ping and Pong. They are very friendly with my finches. As you can see on this pic, Pipi likes them. :D

Petpet eating a mung bean sprout. This boy really has a BIG appetite. When I was hand feeding and weaning him, I always fed him first and then locked him in a cage, otherwise he would steal all the food I was trying to feed to his siblings and all the food that was still in his siblings’ beaks. Petpet trusted my hand about what I fed him. Whatever I gave him, he would gulp it down without doubt. The others would usually got suspicious when they saw new food. So it took them a few second to watch and study the new food before I managed to put it in their beaks and then another few seconds to chew and taste which sometimes ended up with the food got spit out. I’m glad they are all weaned now. :)

Here’s the new gym that was made specially based on my design. I put it in my new (indoor) bird room which once was my working room. I don’t use the outdoor colony cage anymore, this is my lovebirds’ new home. They have cages where they sleep at night that are put in this room too. That’s a connecting door to my new working room with a pipping barred window. The connecting door is just used for emergency only (in case some of them fight). Otherwise I usually use another door to get into the bird room. I have socialized Pepe with the others successfully so that he can share room with them safely now. Before, I put the cages in a different room and I let Pepe and the other 4 used the room in turn but they ended up calling each other and climbing and pooping on the bird room’s main door. However, just as expected, Pepe got bitten 3 times by Papao when he was learning the rank system about living with a flock. Now he knows that: 1.) It’s a no no to meet and greet Papao. 2.) If Papao is walking toward you, you should run like hell. 3.) Never climb Papao’s cage. Pepe now knows better to keep at least 30 cm away from Papao for avoiding her bites. Now I can have my peace and continue painting with cute finches next door. Note: I no longer use this gym that I made from guava branches because it was really hard to clean some corners/joins from poops.

3 month old Pepe and his uncle, Peewee, who was almost 2 years old at that time. Body size does matter. :D

The Finch Station. The cage is only used to keep the 5 babies at night, or when I clean my room. At day, the cage is open as part of their play station. They are free to roam my working room otherwise. Pipi sleeps on my PC table on her toothpick treasure box at night. She doesn’t use a cage anymore, night or day. She even can calmly watch me cleaning my room. The others will get panic when they see the broom and mop, thus they need to evacuate from the room when I do room cleaning.  :)

Pepe delivering 2 toothpicks that I ordered. Would you like to order some toys from his store? :D He has had a good business instinct since he was a baby, remember this pic?  I guess he likes opening a store more than running a hotel like his uncle, Pocky, did. :D Pepe is like his mom, they both love piling stuffs in their dents. See baby Papao, Pepe’s mom and her junk store HERE.
