Re: Ways to play with IRN chick ... ?

My Darwin is 3 months & 1 week now. He's so smart! We've just been working on new tricks. He can step-up, "dance" by nodding his head really fast, "wave" by picking up his foot & waving it, & turn around on command! I swear my birds a genius, but I guess every birdy mom thinks that :wink:.

Hand Feeding help please!!!

My baby IRN is about 5 weeks old. He used to eat 12+ CCs at each feeding at 6AM, 1PM, 6PM, and 10PM. Now, he's not wanting to eat as much. He's also still kind of shy, and doesn't really come to me and get excited about eating like my other chick that's about 4 or 5 days younger. Any tips???

Re: bird shows

You'll probably find cool mutations. Usually you can get healthy birds there because they are from good breeders, they just generally won't be as tame because chances are they're breeding lots of birds if they are participating in the show.

Re: will siblings breed?

Best thing would be to separate them. Siblings (of any animal, really) breeding is not recommended because genetic flaws will be bred double, because both will carry the same flaws. They'll breed their siblings, mom, dad, it does not matter.
