Not enough for an omelet...



I just got two pretty little white finches a couple of months ago. I am really enjoying their company. One is Lizzy and the other is Mr. Darcy of course. My dog T.T. Rabbit hasn't any use for them. When I first brought them home I was sure he was going to find a way to give them a heart attack. Now he hardly notices them. I've never been a bird owner before so when they started surprising me with these little gifts I wasn't sure what to do. I bought a nest for them at the pet store but Lizzy evidently has no use for a family yet because she refuses to set. That's ok because I'm not ready either.

Your finches are wonderful, I have never seen white ones before! And how wonderful that the female is laying eggs! you are right, they would be too tiny for an omelette! But you are welcome to come on over to my house and share an omelette made with our chicken's fresh eggs! :-) What a nice story to share with us all. wishing you a great day, Debby

I never had any desire to own a bird, and then I heard my friend's birds singing! What a beautiful song. Is your house filled with their music?

June those birds are gorgeous! I've never seen snow white finches like that before! Maybe someday you will build a little nesting box for her and grow a finch family?

I love the sewing room-it looks so organized to me! The birds look like fun-for you:) I like little statues of birds but not so much *real* ones. But they are soo very chic...

Yes, my family is doing well...thanks for asking! The triplets get to come out in public for the first time in a couple of weeks and over here for Easter...they are soo fun! Is your granddaughter doing better?
