Peanut’s Beginning…

Uncategorized

Peanut came to me at the end of May this year as a 14 day old owlet…he [although I can’t be sure if he is a he, without sending a feather off for DNA checking] still had his egg tooth and would only open one eye for a short time each day!  He ate every 4 hours – through the night too for the first couple of days – exciting and hard work for such a tiny thing that only weighed 2 and a half ounces and easily fit in to my husband’s hand!

He was always full of character and very quick – now at 3 months old he weighs around 5 ounces – about the same as an I Phone.  He spends lots of his day hunting and chasing leaves – pouncing on them as they blow in the wind.

A couple of weeks ago when it was really hot and sunny [yes, really it was] Peanut was in our conservatory enjoying the space while the final touches were added to his aviary.  As it was so hot I thought I would offer him a cool down by spraying him with cool water – look at the photos – he loved it!!

Totally enjoying the cool down spray!

More please?

More please?

He actually loved it so much that when he was in his aviary and it rained he would stay out and got so drenched that I just had to bring him inside to dry – he really will have to learn not to stay out in the rain when winter comes!
