  • Baby chicks keep dying?

    About 3 days ago I bought 4 baby chickens. But the next morning I saw one that was dead. And this morning I noticed another chick was dead. They have all been eating the chick starter food, they have fresh water and they do drink it. The heat lamp is at 85 degrees. (They were born about 1 1/2 weeks ago). But... show more
    About 3 days ago I bought 4 baby chickens. But the next morning I saw one that was dead. And this morning I noticed another chick was dead. They have all been eating the chick starter food, they have fresh water and they do drink it. The heat lamp is at 85 degrees. (They were born about 1 1/2 weeks ago). But instead of walking around the brooder they spend most of the time in one of the corners all bunched up together chirping all day. My parents say it's dumb to have a heat lamp and that they don't need one, so they always turn it off, but I turn it on again whenever I see it off. I always remove any poop from the brooder and clean their buts if they have any poop on them. I'm not sure what's wrong because they look healthy but they keep dying... It really makes me sad seeing my baby chicks die. Any help or advice i could use?? Thx

    You would need to decide whether the job is likely to last, if you would get another of equal demands if it doesn't, the time school takes, AND if you have time to clean the cage even if you got him a friend. You could wait a bit, but really, do what is best, overall, for you and the bird.

    Maybe your sister would like him?

    I currently have a bird feeder in my backyard but as of late, I’ve had a mother and baby squirrel show up and they continue to scare my birds away. I went out today and bought a squirrel feeder but I would like to know how far up from ground level and how far away from the bird feeder I should place it. I’ve been told that distance isn’t too much of a concern as with their own feed, they wouldn’t bother each other. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!

    I'd like to make some bird feeders to hang outside, but I don't have all the ingredients mentioned in the recipes I've found so far. I have some vegetable suet, various nuts, oats and raisins (not sure which things are bird/squirrel/general wildlife friendly?). Could probably buy lard from a local shop, but can't get to a wildlife centre to buy bird seed or anything. Is there anything I can make with these kinds of ingredients? Thanks!

  • Is there any fairly cheap veterinarian that takes in birds (parakeet) in or around Los Angeles?

    Best answer: Look for an AVIAN vet, not all vets have bird training. Contact the local zoo to ask who they use. Parakeets have 2 common foot issues, and this is one of them.

He's a scared and lonely child. You are the parrot's flock. You might be really big and ugly (to a parrot), but you are the flock, and he wants to be with the flock.

    I would recommend that you invest in some books on raising parrots.

  • I have 4 Sparrow eggs I need help with to make sure I'm doing everything right. Help please!?

    Every year we have hundreds of sparrows, dove, finches, blackbirds, crows, a few hawks and falcons, and other birds flying around, making nests etc., around my desert home in New Mexico.

    Every year we have hundreds of sparrows, dove, finches, blackbirds, crows, a few hawks and falcons, and other birds flying around, making nests etc., around my desert home in New Mexico. And every year, the sparrows make their nests in my vents on my roof. The worst one is our heater, which causes major issues for us. So this year, after the crazy weather seemed to come to an acceptable end (we have had terrible winds and freezing weather of and on still) we decided to get up there and clear any attempted nesting that had started, and screen it up better. Well, for the heater vent, he was too late and there was a full nest with 4 eggs inside. Before he even told me, he took the nest out with the eggs in it and was checking them out, handling then etc. I was mortified! But told him to give me the nest and the eggs. We don't have any tall trees or anywhere safe we could put the nest, and since we had handled then so much, I'm sure mom's would have just killed them. So I decided I was going to attempt to help them, worst case, they don't make it, best case, I'm going to be a busy Mommy for a little while.I just want to make sure I'm doing everything right and giving these little guys their best shot. So I have them in their nest, in a box, with heat lamps, some blankets, a thermometer used for hydro growing so it has humidity etc, I have a small glass of water in there, and a stuffed animal. I'm turning them and checking them under light in my phone. Am I missing anything?

  • My parrot chewed open a battery he is a alexandrine parrot and is a year old what do I do?

    Best answer: Nothing, but keep an eye on it. Those birds will chew on anything and everything. If it shows signs of becoming sick then I see a Vet.
