Ok so here at the madhouse we have many members of our flock and since starting we have grown madly. We had our quail hatch and watched them grow into maturity and now my eldest son has a group of 5 Chinese Painted Quail and my daughter has a group of 3 Japanese Quail.
We believe children should be allowed to help look after animals from a young age to teach correct handling and responsibility, all of my children are now pet owners in their own right.
We have also been joined by two rescue pigeons who will be enjoying the new outside aviary when it’s completed but for now are making the most of comfy life indoors.
So we have certainly kept ourselves busy over lockdown but thats not all…
Because someone was really, really naughty yesterday.
We have been weighing it up for a few months now that we could potentially have the attention to give to one more feathered friend and we met a couple of wonderful birds but for various reasons didn’t find the right fit.
We are very conscientious of upsetting the balance here at the mad house as we have worked our backsides off together to all get on as well as we do here and don’t want to compromise any of our current training so we decided to wait until the time was right.
Until yesterday that is when looking for Twankey’s new friend.
Please welcome Mabel she’s a Pineapple Greencheek Conure, it was a case of love at first sight and Rachel is no longer allowed to visit pet stores when they have babies 😅
Hope you are all keeping safe and well please feel free to get in contact if you have any questions.
Rachel and the Flock xx
