    We are facing a cold winter here in Georgia, I have concrete floors in my loft. I wanted to know if maybe I should cover the floors with some thing like pine needles or straw? What are the benifits of both? Any suggestions on the matter?

As he is now pretty much grounded, we offered him a permanent home. He nests in the shed at the end of the most recent aviary extension. When we put...

    I have a basket attached to the side of Blueberry's cage that was filled with a nice bouquet of flowers until he literally plucked every flower from the stem. :( When I was cleaning one day I just tossed the yellow flower in the hanging basket. From that point on, he has spent much of his...

    I have had a few different occassions this year of fertile eggs survive until very close to hatching and then the egg appears to literally melt, killing the near ready to hatch baby inside. The egg appears to just kinda fold back, and kindof melt off the top half of the fetus. Anybody heard of...

    Just received my cock bird today to go along with the hen I have. I don't know if I should let him and her alone and see if they will become a pair on their own, or lock them up in a nesting box for a couple of days and see where it goes from there. I got them both to breed and raise their...

    Yesterday in the late afternoon, I was checking on my little boy-doves to see if they needed anything. Sunshine was sitting on the floor of the cage, a little fluffed-up. Sometimes they sit in that corner on the floor and sunbathe, but I did a double-take this time since there was not much sun...

    I have decided that I really want to let my fantail pair (Munchkin and Isabella) have a baby. I can tell it would mean so much to them. They are so nurturing of each other and of their fake eggs. They will be very good parents. And I would enjoy the experience too - of watching them raise a...
