The nest arrived today for the Doves (which I've called Richard + Judy) and within 5 minutes of putting it in their cage, they started using it.
I've given them some hay to use as nesting material and they seem to like it :D

Britains Got Talent

Today me + my friends got free tickets to go to watch the Britains Got Talent auditions in Birmingham.
We queued for a few hours, and we got quite good seats upstairs in the circle.
There was a warm up man, who was really funny, who introduced the judges - Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan - aswell as Ant & Dec. He explained how it all worked, and then we had to record clapping, standing ovations, boos etc.
Some of the acts were really good, and others weren't so :P! It started at 1ish and we got out at about 7.
Afterwards we walked past the Stage Door, and Tony - Simon Cowell's bodyguard was there, so I had my photo taken with him :D

Diamond Doves - 2nd Egg

The doves have layed another egg, the second one. I went to 2 pet shops and couldn't see anything suitable They've also got more small grit so that they have enough calcium.
It was on the bottom of the cage cracked open. There was a bowl in the cage on the bottom with hay in it, but they didn't use it so I've been trying to find them a nest. I've been to 2 pet shops and couldn't see anything so I've ordered a proper nest for the off the internet (from Portugal of all places!)Hopefully they'll use the new nest and we may have a baby dove in a few weeks time :D

Diamond Doves

I got a pair of Diamond Doves for Christmas and when I got home today there was an egg in the bottom of the cage. It has cracked so they won't try to hatch it, but I'm going to have to get them a nest and then hopefully they will lay more eggs and try to incubate them themselves.

They don't have names yet, but the male is the one with the bigger orange ring around his eye, and the female has a browner chest.

New Candler

I've bought a new pen-candler.
It was only £5 off the internet. You use it to look inside eggs while they're hatching so you can tell if the egg is fertile and if there is an embryo developing inside it.
If the egg is fertile, when it's candled you can see the blood vessels inside the egg.
It's a lot smaller than the one I made, so it's easier to use.
