    When can you begin to tell if a bird is a hen or cock. I have a bird that the former owner said was a cock but is rather small. He says the bird is roughly 5-8 months old. He said he thinks it was a cock because he started the cooing and the puffing with the strut that cocks do, but this bird...

    I was talking to a poultry doctor and he mentioned that we should not give baytril often in the sense that the disease or germ causing it gets immuned to it after the first the treatment and that we should alternate between brands.

    Oscar last night started doing some star-gazing type moves, but we thought it was because Pinky had landed on top of his cage, and he was trying to see her. But he was doing it repeatedly. So I took him out to sit with me and he did stop doing it. But Aias says he's been doing it more today...
