Can't wait to start seeing pictures of them growing. I love watching your babies feather out.

It is nice to see babies grow up. You should update us frequently, and obviously include pictures!

ok i got a call from someone who wants one of the babies. i did turn him down as he wanted the bird on valintines day. i said sorry the chick will not be ready till atleast the minimum march 7. he proceeded to saay it,s ok i no how to hand feed. so i replied in saying i will not sell any baby bird till they are fully weaned. it is not fair to the baby bird or the customer.

I don't blame you for not giving him a baby un-weaned. Getting a bird for a holiday, or as a gift for someone, always sets up a red flag for me - does the person receiving the gift really want a bird? It's not fair to the bird, or the receiver, if it's not as well received. Especially on Valentines day - what happens when they break up? :giggle:

ok so today i had the 3 oldest chicks out of the box hand tamming them and lord behold dad fed the youngest chick so now i believe that the reason they have not been feeding the youngest is that the other 3 have been hoarding all the food
