Post: Young quaker preferences
Posted by MKay on 2/06/05
Terra just left with her new baby. She's doing just fine
with handfeeding, and is just wonderful with the baby.
It's fully feathered, very sweet, and comfy in her hands.
While she was here, we were discussing cage setups, and
she's wondering if she should put a box, or shelf, or
something to utilize as a "getaway" if desired. She was
planning to put in a nestbox, but I didn't think that
would be the best plan, as it may encourage nesting
What are your ideas, and what has worked for you? I've
seen one quaker with an apartment of sorts built in; it
had a shelf at the top with a little bed or snuggle-hut in
it. She's going to be building a cage; they have a
smaller one to use for the baby for now, and she'd like to
know other ideas. We've had lots of babies here to
handfeed and send off to new homes, but we only have our
two adult quakers, who never had a box or "getaway" until
we recently put the nestbox up; for breeding purposes.
