Look what I found in a bottom flight in my aviary!! This flight is where I put old birds and those judged unfit for breeding. I just let them live out their life in peace.
The birds are a mostly Staffords but a couple of rollers. And boy was I shocked to see they somehow successfully raised a chick with nothing provided but seed and water and occasional greens..!! The seed was not plain but rather the petamine and vitamin wheat germ oil coated excellent seed I get from Bird of Paradise 316 263-0850.
It is very wild acting compared to my pampered chicks but hopefully he will warm up to me once it is fully weaned!
