I bought some cagees and racks from this lady for my new hobby.
Im going to try to figure out how I can divide the cages..there
should be enough room in them.
I did take the chick out this afternoon, and put it alone. He
(She?) is in a cage right next to the parents, and I saw it eating
on it's own! YAH!! I went out and bought some Petamine Nestling
Thanks for all the info..I have learned alot today from you!
I will try to attach a picture of my new "hobby" room.. hope it
