New family members

Well, they aren't technically part of our family, but we consider them to be. Brian was cutting the dead parts of the robellini a couple of weeks ago and noticed a small nest. Inside of it are three tiny blue speckled eggs, and they are so cute. The parents were irate with Brian for being near the eggs, but he was careful not to touch the nest or the eggs and finished with the trimming as quickly as possible. Mom and dad bird are great parents and protect these little guys like crazy. We check on them frequently to see if they have hatched, and we're counting down the days to see the new little ones.
