Two Birds in The Hand is Worth…

2013-02-23 15.16.25At four days old the birds are steady on their big orange feet and eating all day.   They already have wing feathers sprouting but are still cute and fluffy.  I am handling them every day to try and reduce the stress on them when I move them out to clean the brooder or move them up to the next cage.   They still squawk every time I put my hand in their box whether I am giving them food, water or picking them up.  I am holding them until they fall asleep which doesn’t take long, but sleep only lasts a few minutes.
