|FYI: How they got their names...One afternoon in the Chat Room, Owliver said to more than several people all at the same time, "Look at that cute little Punk!" Everyone laughed, and they all agreed, since it seemed to be so fitting at the moment. The names stuck! So since that day, they have been known as "The Punks." Punk 1 (the oldest), Punk 2, Punk 3, Punk 4 and Punk 5, nicknamed, of course P1, P2, P3, P4 and P5.|

Everyone sleeps generally throughout the day,
eating what may be left in 'the Pantry'
Typical feeding time begins about 8 p.m. each night,
and continues throughout the night.
See that mouse under Owlivia? Three of the youngsters
can swallow at least 1/2 a mouse these days...!

The smallest one, Punk5 just swallowed a
whole small mouse tonight! Additionally,
Owlivia feeds each one individually,
just to make sure they each get what they need.
UPDATE: April 22...we lost our two littlest owlets today.
Punk5 (known to some as 'Pancake' or 'Scrappy')
in the afternoon, and Punkie4 died at 8pm.
He simply fell down, and died just moments later.
The live feed was turned off, and these four screenshots
replaced the streaming video temporarily
during this sensitive time.
UPDATE: April 23...
Owlivia, Owliver and the three
are doing well.
The camera is still off the air.
In the morning perhaps,
would be better...
UPDATE: April 24...
Cameras were back on
at 1:15 pm Saturday,
April 24, 2010,
have since discovered in all practicality, and with the 'experts'
weighing in, that the two sweet creatures that died ingested enough of a
dose of poison from a small
mouse, which never was shared with the others, or Owlivia, thank goodness.
The reason they believe it occurred? Starving owlets would have whined sadly for days and days before the end, they stated. We would have seen it coming. These two had been lively and frisky just moments before their 'final' moment. They just rolled over and 'dropped dead' without any warning.
Let's ALL please use mousetraps INSTEAD of poison!
4th...Our three little owlets are doing WONDERFULLY!
And by ALL means, check out what Stacey O'Brien
had to say about our Fledging concepts...
