Yea, they're most definitely birds now! At first they were baby jellybeans, then aliens, then porcupines! LOL They're already bigger than Mom, I guess you can thank Ace's English blood for that! They preen a lot now, and nibble at any foods you put in front of them. I give them lots of time with the other birds, and they are adjusting well, but Mom and Dad are super protective and won't let anyone else near them! Nero is the most inquisitive about them, which gets him beat up since he is the lowest guy in the pecking order!
