These pics are a little bit old...2-3 weeks ago. I'll update them soon.

Let me start out with an introduction to my buddies. I've had Sweet Dee and Chet for over a year, and the kids first hatched on 10/16.

Chet and Sweet Dee, Dad and Mom.

Image

In hatching order, with their temporary names:

Mac (I'm keeping this one, it's his real name)

Image

Buckbeak: My Harry Potter Fan and Tween loves this name, she's the only girl.

Image

Tweeter:
Named by my 4 year old, he's the most vocal and loves singing with Chet.

Image

Junior (he's the youngest)

Image

One of the amazing things about these guys? They all survived! Usually a first clutch doesn't survive.

Here is a pic of Mac, his first day in the office with me today.

I have never really considered birds all that cute but omg those are adorable.

And those are very tiny... My eyes hurt just thinking about it.

I never thought about having birds as pets until I saw a National Geographic (maybe Discovery channel?) special on them and I was immediately obsessed. Best pets ever. I also have cats, btw. I just keep those low life moon rats away from my baby birds :)

I believe it's a Stug III G yeah. It's hard to differenciate it from the Stug IV without looking it from the side.

Worked on some more Bolt Action in 15mm while I binge watched Man in the High Castle. Just put in some quick color blocking. I keep telling myself to speed paint...but find myself seeing new details I want to paint :)
