These babies are from 3 to 4 weeks old and are relaxing in the warm brooder after a good meal. (much like crashing on the couch after a great dinner!) Baby cockatiels grow fast and fledge around the 4 week mark. Note the picture of the same 5 babies below a mere week later. What a difference a week makes! They've all fledged now and enjoy a good fly for exercise and some play time on the gym where they socialize with each other and begin to climb and explore.
