Lost my bird outside - Page 2

post #11 of 19

Lol, he sounds like he has quite the personality!

 

I had a cowbird I raised that still wanted to be fed when he was 4 months old! I told him he was a grown bird and could eat by himself LOL, but sometimes I still fed him cause he was so cute when he was begging...

Yeah they must have, the nest was up high and somehow he survived the fall. He ate an extraordinary amount too, one day I figured out he ate 123 pieces of soaked cat kibble a day! (that was when he was fully feathered)

personality wise what was the cowbird like?

He was kinda goofy and wanted his head scratched all the time, plus he wanted to be fed 24/7. He also loved hanging out with my other birds or on my shoulder and making cute little chirps.

you you still have him ? and thats strange i always thought they were aggressive towards other birds

I don't still have him, he joined a flock of wild cowbirds. I've heard they are supposed to be aggressive but most of the birds I raise don't get aggressive with other birds, maybe cause I raise them together. I had a starling last year who was the sweetest bird ever and would try to preen my other birds. She also learned how to talk which was awesome. She eventually joined a flock of wild starlings though.
