Cowart's Common Room
The babies, Dwight and Demelza, are over four weeks old. They move freely about the aviary, but have not yet been outside, and still like to spend a lot of time sitting in with mummy Mariette, or daddy Pan, whoever is on the new eggs. If Pan doesn't take them outside by the end of the week, then I will.....but so far I have left it all up to him and Mariette.
Pascal is not tolerant of the babies, and pecks them when they come near. I think he is in a mood because he and Primrose don't seem to be having new eggs. I don't really understand it. They had their first babies, Myth and Magic, when they were only just over babies themselves - and a while later they had babies that didn't live more than a couple of days..... and now, nothing.
