    Babies are winging their way to Ohio

    I hope they don’t get tired :lol:

    Six this morning I put three Indian Ringneck babies, four African Ringneck babies and their parents,

    in a crate I made to fit them all comfortably and took them to the airport. I am a little sad to see them

    go, but I am glad they have a place to go before the next batch hatches. I have hens on nine more eggs

    and I am exhausted. So it’s bye bye little babies, may you have a long good life.

    1. WOW! I've missed your posts lately and am amazed by this.

    And you have nine more eggs? When do you sleep?

      2. Fortunately they sleep too…

      It’s more work when they are younger, once they get close to weening they are harder to feed,

      but fed less often. It still is early mornings no matter how old they are.

      Next week all the birds that don’t have eggs, are going out to the aviary in the backyard.

      Emma will be the only bird in the house. I am so happy.

        3. That is good news. I guess it's warm enough now they will be

        comfy out there. How long do you keep them after they hatch?

          4. The ones I shipped today were,

          10 – 11 weeks old. I have two that deposits were made on and they will be here about another week

          until their new parents can come get them. One lady driving from Pueblo, to get her boy.

          Indian Ringnecks can withstand very cold temps for short durations. The weather has been improving

          and I don’t think those of us close to the river have much to worry about.
