FOL14 - Week 19 - Good Things Inside

May's topic for the Focus on Life 2014 weekly photography challenge is 
'In, At and About' 
and for week 19, Sally over at  
The Studio Sublime, gave us the prompt:

Good Things Inside

She told us that this was a good prompt to think 'outside' the box.  

Not quite sure I've accomplished that this week or not but since Mother's Day is Sunday, I thought a photo of these might fit the bill and be rather appropriate.

 These are Kiki's eggs. 

Coco and Kiki are our Peach Faced Lovebirds.

Coco's on the left here, and Kiki's on the right.
 Coco's my baby and can do no wrong. 

But Kiki,...she's a piece of work!  

I still love her though.

She's just barely 2 years old. Coco is somewhere between 8 to 10 years old (I simple can't remember the year he was born - bad mommy!!).

 None of their eggs have ever had anything 'inside'. Well, one did last year, but it didn't form all the way and after about 28 days or so, she just quit sitting on them. As I cleaned up their cage the other day and held these up to the sunlight, it doesn't look like there's anything at all in these little guys either.

Poor Kiki. She's such a good little 'Mama in preparation'. 

She's still sitting on her little eggs, protecting them with all she's got and building her little nest. 

Driving Coco nuts. (you know, just like normal pregnant women do to their men!)

And, she's got 'good things inside' as far as I'm concerned. 

Good instincts and a pretty little song voice. 

And one of these times maybe she'll have eggs with 'good things inside'. 

Coco and Kiki "Inside" their "love shack"! ;-)

Hop on over to all the other participants this week and see what 'good things' they have 'inside'! 

Until Next Time, 
Peace, Love and Happy Mother's Day to all of you Moms out there!  (Including Kiki!!)


  1. Bless her! It is amazing how they 'know' to sit on eggs and protect them... Great photos!

  2. Great pictures of the eggs and your love birds! They do look like sweeties!

  3. Poor Kiki all that work for nothing! Do love birds in captivity often have hatchable eggs? (guess speel check doesn't like that word!)

  4. I love this post! It's perfect for the prompt and for Mother's Day! The last photo is just so sweet.

  5. Beautiful birdies! Love your piccies' perfect for the prompt. I hope she gets to become a mum.

  6. I hope that one day Kiki gets to 'enjoy' the gift of motherhood. Heaven help poor Coco when that day comes though! *smile*

  7. I enjoyed reading your story of Coco and Kiki. Your birds are adorable.

  8. Aw it's sad that none of the eggs have hatched. Maybe one day...
    I think the love shack is cute!

  9. Awww How sweet. They are so cute perched there side-by-side. That Ma-Ma instinct is a strong one, regardless of the outcome! Happy Mother's Day!
