Donald Saunders of South Africa sent in some fabulous pictures of his Borders. Aren't they lovely!!!
In South Africa, they are conditioning and beginning the breeding season.
His Cats love the birds too!
Donald says "Here are a few pics of my Borders. The hens in the flight cage areenjoying the sun and greens. They share the sun with my 2 shorn Chinchilla longhair cats.They are not interested in the birds. In the morning when I prepare the border veggies, they scream for some grated boiled egg. Once they have had their titbit they move off. I begin pairing up 1 week before the full moon in September."
