The Terrifying Miracle of Life

A family friend recently found some cockatiel eggs in their pair's cage. One hatched and this little alien emerged. All photos courtesy of Tom Deering.

Very well done photos - nicely cared for birds. Be careful with the towels though, sometimes looped materials catch little birdy toes and I've seen fragile legs and feet with some serious damage.

Flat surfaced, soft materials, even layers of paper towels are great options.

Keep up the good work and congratulations!
