Looks can Deceive
These little guys are cunning-and there are three of them on the shelf. The tail to the right does not belong to the head to the left.
I spent several days chasing them and putting them back in their cage only to rinse and repeat. I finally gave up and put them n a different cage until they get a little bigger.
The culprits are baby peach faced love birds. Their peach will become more vibrant and the black on their beaks will fade-earlier in the week the beaks were completely black.
I know this in part because I spend a lot of time looking at them after I catch them.
My aunt gave me two adult females and these three babies-the hope is one is a male. I don't know how to tell-but the birds do so that is all that really matters.
