MISCELLANEOUS JUVENILE BIRD FACTS

 

Juvenile birds are shipped Wednesdays,unless otherwise noted, via USPS Express Mail. We will call you when we are ready to ship your order.  Juveniles will eat a poultry layer crumble or a gamebird crumble. They are given scratch during transit.

 

If birds appear to be extremely stressed upon arrival, they can be given Duramycin or Oxytet, and Quik Chik (or electrolytes such as Gatorade or Pedialyte).  Also keep them in an area that is 85-90 degrees.

 

Pinioned birds – The right side is pinioned. Feel the end of the wing where the bone would be and compare with the left. They are easily pinioned at hatching, otherwise it is a surgical procedure. Juveniles that are not pinioned can have a wing trimmed. The trimmed feathers will grow back, though, so it will need to be done approximately four times a year.

 

Birds that are not wing trimmed or pinioned will fly away, and most likely not return.  Keep in mind these are wild birds - pinioning or trimming the wing are sure ways to keep them from flying away.

 

Miscellaneous Notes:

  • One pair of swans can take care of vegetation on a one acre lake.

 

  • Mandarin bill color : Male – Red Female – Dark Grayish Black. Young males & females look alike. True colors will develop after 3 months.
  • Wood & Mandarin Ducks – Molting – they will molt yearly for a couple of months.

 

  • Ornamental Pheasants – different breeds can be kept together until Spring. They will fight during breeding season so must be kept separate at that time.  It can take up to a year for full coloring of ornamental pheasants.
