Seems like it's an ongoing problem since one of the others has a bald spot on the back of his head. Poor birds.

Moto and freckles are the parents of all the others my guess is they over breed them =(

The one with no feathers on his head reminds me of a vulture.
How can you tell them all apart?

There were 14 all together!!!
We each took 7,I kept 3,still have one I'm rehoming.
I already rehomed 3.It was terrible!!! There were the 2 original
parents of them all..2 were not related.My girl Flo is one of the unrelated.The other we dont remember,could be one of hers,or
one I already rehomed.I seperated the one when I brought it home,so I knew for sure.My husband took a liking to a grey boy,originally it bit him,and made him mad,and has been handling
him more,and has gotten alot better.He named him Spitfire.I also kept a lutino girl I named Lexi,and put her with my original Tiel Miller.He doesn't care that shes there,he just wants to be out with me.Now its only been a little over a week that we've had these new tiels,and Flo and Spitfire mated! I kinda freaked! am tryin to breed my keets,and those two did that!! I have been getting all the info on them as I can.I already know all about keets,so their pretty similar.I put in a nestbox today,and gave them their own cage.Hopefully i'll see some eggs in a week.

Flo and Spitfire

Gettin' it on!!

The new lutino Lexi

My first tiel Miller

oh,heck im not desperate..i didnt have the tiels set up!! they did it on their own.I dont want to have fertilized eggs die tho either,so I will allow them to carry through.as for the keets,they're not breeding and its been over 2months,so desperate my foot!
