Rain, Rain, go AWAY!!! Boy it poured here like a monsoon yesterday. Remembered I left the window open in the brooder house so ran out to close it. It is truly like 50 feet from my door and I was drenched in my PJ's when I got back. LOL.:D
Babies are growing good, got about half my cages filled with birds for show in October, need to get the others moved soon. Got my one old hen who is still spinning in circles, she gets crook neck bad when she gets stressed or too hot. Vitamins are a must and I have gone back and forth with what to use. Been using Avian Super Pack but wondered if there was something better. I have Avia Charge 2000, pretty old though and moisture got in there so icky. Ordered some more but the birds never really seem to care for it. Also bought Amino Plex 500 but I just do not think it is entirely what I need.
Got some people interested in some males this year, which is a good thing seeing thats pretty much what I hatched out. Only 1 blue bird this year and it was a female, which I suppose is fine but would like a few more blue, got a ton of black. Never did get rid of my 6 toed issue in the blacks, got about 3 babies that need to be sold as pets because of it as well as my 2 little calicos. Oh well, everyone always wants silkies so its a good thing, just wish there were more people in CO to sell too!!
