Green Cheeked Conure chicks have come to the Perch! We did not breed them but are hand raising them for another breeder as all of our babies are currently weaned. The parents are a visually normal male Green Cheeked that is split to yellow sided and cinnamon and a yellow sided female. It is too early to be sure what colour the chicks will be but we think we will have two green cheeked, two yellow sided, and one pineapple. Will post some pictures soon!
Green cheeked Conure chicks!!
Where are they now??
If you have adopted a bird from us please let us know how he/she is doing! This space is for you to post pictures and updates of Lake Erie Perch alumni!
Clover is one of our Green Cheeked Conure chicks that we hand raised in the summer of 2014. This photo was sent to us from her wonderful new home in Port Dover, Ontario.
Lilly is one of our Caique chicks from Spring 2014. She flew all the way out to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to join her new family.
Welcome to Peter and Piper!
Peter and Piper are a proven pair of Senegals that we recently aquired from a reputable breeder who is retiring from the business. We hope they will quickly settle into their new accommodations and feel right at home.
Easter Chick Update
Our Easter chick is weaned and in his own cage! He is a male and we have named him Ricky. We chose the name because our Chattering Lory, Quincey, is always giving orders to someone named Ricky who must have been a member of his previous household. We thought it only appropriate that he have a new flock member with the same name! Ricky was our first fully co-parented chick. He is very snuggly and tame and readily steps up for anyone who approaches him. He is learning to give kisses and becoming more adventurous and playful every day. Eventually we hope to pair Ricky with a co-parented female and continue our co-parenting approach to the next generation.
White Bellied Caiques!
Welcome to Zip and Pixie! Our tame pair of White Bellied Caiques are friendly and full of fun. They have very quickly become integral members of our "flock." They come to us from a wonderful aviary in Owen Sound Ontario and have always received the best possible care and socialization. This really shows in their sweet dispositions. Although they will not be ready to breed for another year or so we think they will be perfectly suited to our co-parenting approach.
