Eggs on the Nest
Our cage is big enough to let the birds fly comfortably. It is in the corner of our little garden, and under some fruit trees which have 2 real birds' nests.
This week, the girls giggled with surprise to see that there's an egg on the nest box. To date, there are already 2 eggs. Funny, we don't know who's the mother bird because Lime and Lemon take turns sitting on the eggs.
Zoe is the family vet. Although we all take responsibilities taking care of our pets but it's Zoe who is more keen to care for them.
I don't know how many more birds we'll have next month. I don't want to count until the eggs are hatched. That's one hard lesson we learned taking care of birds. But we are excited and confident that at least one or 2 will make it. We are already guessing of their colors: blue or yellow?
