You guys…

An intruder has shown up. Inside my very own home. It’s a small intruder but their presence is MIGHTY…

It goes by the name of Peep-ette.

4 days old

Peep-ette is a golden pheasant that hatched at our house on May 14th. I know you’re thinking, Oh, Noodle! How cute is it?!

WRONG! It is NOT cute. It is an attention hog and it has stolen my Mom.


I am extremely displeased with Peep-ette.

Mom: Noodle, we talked about this.

Noodle: No, Mom. YOU talked about this. I had no say in the matter.

Mom: Peep-ette is all alone in this world. None of her clutch-mates have hatched yet. Don’t you think that’s pretty lonely?

Noodle: *sigh* Well, yeah but the couch is lonely without you so now I’ve been spending a lot of time in my crate. That’s how sad I am.

Mom: Soon Peep-ette will have a brother or sister to snuggle with and I’ll be able to snuggle with my best boy all the time.

I need that to happen yesterday! I even tried eating Peep-ette. Mom didn’t let that happen. Not even close. AND I got a bop on the nose.

This is my super displeased face that I use when I look at Peep-ette:

You know who doesn’t mind Peep-ette? Macy! In fact, I think Macy wants to be her mama. Yuck….

“Mom, can I hold Peep-ette?”

Mom keeps Peep-ette tucked in safe:

Usually Peep-ette’s head is all the way down in Mom’s shirt and Mom keeps her hand over him/her just in case. Peep-ette just sleeps and sleeps and sleeps. On my Mom.


The sharing of Mom never stops in this house and I will never be okay with it. She was mine first you know!

Anywho, there are 14 more eggs in the incubator. One hatched yesterday but died shortly after the egg broke open. Mom and Dad said that’s to be expected and will more than likely happen to some of the remaining eggs. Hopefully one will hatch soon so Peep-ette will stop stealing my Mom.

Here’s a picture of the 3 adults we have:

The males are the super colorful ones. We used to have 2 females but one dug out and flew away. Mom and Dad are trying to find another one so the other male can have a wifey too.

You know what another wifey means? More eggs. You know what more eggs mean? More Peep-ettes! You know what more Peep-ettes mean? MORE LITTLE MOM STEALERS!

    Our Mom is having a giggle attack reading this. Please don’t give her any ideas on “adopting” baby birds – no matter the species. You are right to be upset. We would not like it either!!

  3. Noodle Boodle, I bet if you were scared and shaking your Mom would have to hold you and then Macy could play Mom to peep -ette and all would be right in the (your) world again and isn’t that what really matters, right? xox Xena
    Noodle, sometime, honey, we have to share. I was here first, but I still share my Mom and Dad with Xena. Love, Lucy

  8. The golden pheasants are just beautiful! We hope Peep-ette gets a hatched brother or sister soon so you can have your mom back, Noodle!

    We haven’t seen pheasants around here in ages! But don’t worry, Noodle. Birdies grow up fast. Most of the local evil grackle gargoyle babies have left their nests and have flown away and soon their annoying squawking will be gone too.
