My ankle is...well....almost better...
After a lot of bruising and beautiful shades of purples and greens my ankle is finally back to normal! I am still not back on the court! Even though I am desperate to be! I know that I really need my ankle to be 100% perfect before I play again! I just can't take the risk of hurting it again! So I'm being a good girl and wearing my brace every day and doing strengthening exercises each night! I few more weeks and I will be back out there!!!
And our last big news which has been taking up all of my little spare time is our brand new baby! I swear between nannying and these birds I am set for motherhood hahah These little beauties were hatched on Easter Sunday and we got them 3 weeks later! We only bought 1 but the breeder asked if we could look after 2 for 2 weeks! How could we say no! So for the past 3 weeks we have been hand feeding our latest additions to the 'zoo' They came to us with half opened eyes and no feathers! Fragile babies desperate for a 'mummy' to take them in and care for them like her own! I'm that mummy! Ive been up every 3 hours feeding them and burping them - yes that's right...burping them...can you believe it! The things we do! I've formed a bond with our little bird and I LOVE watching the change and growth in this gorgeous little creature!
As the birds came to us with no feathers we didn't know whether we had a girl or a boy! We just had to wait! Wait until the little feathers peaked through and the colour revealed itself! Red for girl or green for boy!
There she is! A beautiful HEN! Little red feathers showing through at 29 days old!
What a poser! - 29 days old!
Snug as a bug - 32 days old!

As you can see I'm a very excited bird mumma! All my spare time and attention is being put in to our new addition but I make sure that I also pay attention to my other loves - our 14 other pets - oh dear and my husband! Life is crazy - but beautiful!
