New Baby To Handraise

Recommended Posts

This poor bub really has had a bad life so far.

 

First his father breaks his neck so he became dad less, then his mum decided to no longer feed the bubs so they got moved to new nest, he went to one brother went to another.

 

Everything was fine for a few weeks and then tonight I go out to put them to bed and find that the adopted hen has kicked the bub out of the next and was jumping on it. So I see this flat cold bub I thought he was dead so put him on the bench to go and bury and then when I went to take him out he let out a groan so a quick heat and a crop feed and now he is now in a heat box.

 

Just when I thought I had enough on my plate with Willow the Eckkie I now have a bub to handraise as well.

at least it's a few week's old... so shouldn't be too difficult... you may need to dedicate the night to the bub i'm afraid... which means feeding's every 3 hours or so to make up for the food he missed out on the last day or so.....

Well the little guy passed away last night. Got two feeds down him but I noticed that his legs where going black so I figure he had internal issues :(

They are both older and the parents attacked their tails so outside of blood loss and cold they seem to be okay, have feed them three times and they seem active and bright eyes so here is hoping. Really need these guys to be okay as I am starting to feel like just chucking the towel in, also lost a love bird today went out and found it's head missing have no clue what happened really just feeling over it all

Bird keeping has so many ups and downs and can be very disheartening often for long periods of time. I truly hope the two babies you are trying to save now, live on and put a smile on your face and hope in your heart for better times ahead :(

Some good karma must be coming your way soon, you have done a lot of good for the birds in your care in the last couple of weeks in particular.

Well I am shipping these two off to Pip as they are his birds and I just don't have the energy to HR them. Both are at work with me today making lots of noise and letting the whole office know there are here :(
