Hand raising baby birds

03 . 06 . 14

Did you know that one of Andrew’s hobbies is aviculture (breeding birds).

Currently due to a mishap with one of his Sun Conures he is hand raising two Sun Conure chicks.  The hen bird injured herself just after laying her two eggs and so he had to put her into hospital.  Andrew placed the two eggs into his incubator and fortunately they had not been abandoned for too long and hatched.  They are now being raised on Vetafarm Neocare formula and so far doing well.

Mum recovered after a few days of intensive care and is also back in her aviary.
