Growing fast...

The little handfed grasskeet is growing fast.  Looking a bit like a hedgehog with all its pin feathers.

Handfed baby update

The handfed baby keet is doing very well.  It's increased from 1 ml of formula per feeding to 2ml every 3-4 hours, though sometimes it gets a bit in between if it gets particularly noisy.  A stuffed crop is a sure way to make babies sleepy :)

While I do not normally hand feed any of my birds, sometimes if the parents do not feed for some reason and no fosters can be found, I will take over care.  For grasskeets, occasionally a very late hatching egg can lead to a baby being much smaller than the rest of its siblings.  It may not be able to get enough food at feeding time.  I found such a baby and had to take over.  While it was getting some feeding from its parents for a few days, it became dehydrated and weaker since its siblings are now 5 times its size.  So far it's looking a lot less dehydrated, so hopefully it will make it.

Downsizing some

Some of my birds have been very prolific - especially the societies, and due to space reasons, I must downsize some.  For anyone interesting in purchasing some, please see my ads (click on the links) on societies and gouldians.  I will also be sorting through my  shaft tails as well as scarlet chested parakeets, and ads for them should be up soon as well.
