Anyone keep birds ?

I have some quail chicks mostly Chinese , the odd Japanese , that are going to need homes shortly .

They are really good at cleaning the floor of the aviary , tidying up seeds etc dropped by other birds and the eggs are quite tasty/useful too.

 

If anyone is interested PM me , also if anyone would like to swap for some of your birds or finches gis a shout :wink:

Soon as i've switched over to tapatalk i'll stick a couple of pics up :wink:

Yeah . Wish I could keep it in there ....

I have to do that to the wife quite often ...

My sons mother just likes birds . Theres 6 Chucks & 1 Bantam ( the other one died ) , so lots of eggs for Boilies lol , a home made Aviary which has pairs of Canaries , Diamond Doves , Java Sparrows , and Quail both Jap and Chinese .

 

The quail eggs are nice but you need a lot of them for a decent Scrambled eggs on toast :)

 

At the moment she is hatching the eggs with 3 incubators at various stages of development , new batches hatching weekly .

 

Thats without the damned Rabbits , including a young un that i've had to hand feed because the mother trampled on , and killed his 7 siblings blessim his names Tarquin fin tim lim bim bim bus stop f'tangf'tang ole biscuit barrel :) :) :)

That's cute! You've got a right old Farm going there Nm.

I prefer to call it a menagerie Dan ......and people wonder why i dont get to go fishing ffs :)

 

A young fella came round with his kids yesterday to pick some quail .

Had nothing to put 'em in , nothing for 'em to eat and nothing to put their drinking water in .

 

Whats the matter with these people ? :(

Hello NM

 

What about a Cockerel , you old Iron ?  :P .

 

I think I had a rabbit like your Tarquin ; it was supposed to be a Lop Eared Dwarf , but it grew , and grew , and grew a bit more ., and by then we didn't want to take him back to the pet shop . He was very interested in the lady Guinea Pig when she was in season , but most of the time they lived together quite happily .

evening Cru , hows it 'anging ? :)

 

Cockerels mate :wink: no Spuds jokes today mate , well maybe a little one .

 

All the Chickens were hatched from eggs in an incubator and amongst them there were 4 hens .

 

And 8 bloomin' Cockerels .....

 

The Hens got added to the existing Chucks & Bantams and when it became Apparent that they were boys they earned a little trip to Albert Pierrepoint or at least the Chicken equivalent :wink:

 

Tarquin , yeah he's a Lop Eared something or other , one up one down at the moment lol , when i was hand feeding him Goats Milk nearly all his hair fell out .

Although Goats milk is close it still lacks some of the good stuff that is in the Doe's milk and he ended up as bald as a Badger save for his ears and feet , he looked like one of those Shaven Poodles for a few days .

Growing back now though .

Have 2 more baby bunnies as well but they are still with Mum .

 

Glad your Mrs has a GSOH .... Spose she has to living with a Football Delusional :) :) :)
