Our New Residents

Buff Orpington

Hard to believe these cute little puff balls will become fertilizing egg laying machines! Oh the fun of spring! Be sure you are checking your new charges daily. You will need to make sure that not only their cage is clean but that they are clean is well. Occasionally feces will get stuck in the fluff and build up on their backside.

Whenever you see this, use a warm rag to gently remove the feces. These build ups can clog the vents of the small birds and prevent them from regular elimination. I hope you are enjoying all the peep peep peeping!
