Osiris and Blu Update

I don't  know if you all remember that last year we hatched 2 pea fowl.  The male was named Blu and the female was named Osiris.  They were so adorable and lived with us for the first three months (in my dining area!!)  Apparently pea fowl are susceptible to parasites and many never live past 3 months if they go outside and are allowed on the ground.  Last week we were at Liz's farm so I could plan out the graduation quilt and while I was in working on the quilt my DD1 was out visiting her "kids".  I thought you might like to see how they have grown.

Here is Osiris:

Here is Blu.  Isn't he beautiful?  He won't get his train for another year.  But he sure is a pretty boy!

Blu
DD1 spent a LOT of time socializing Osiris. She is such a funny bird and firmly believes that EVERYTHING is her business! I leave you with a video of her being "pet" and groomed by my DD1.

Have a wonderful evening and I will be back tomorrow with some quilty content! ~XOP~
