I have freed enough shell on African that he is trying to work his head free of shell now. I made more progress on the big Toulouse, but hit a vein in membrane, so quickly put it away for a while. Not sure what to do next, so taking a breather.
My menagerie includes 5 horses, 3 dogs, 3 cats, 32 geese (mostly dewlap toulouse & African), 16 assorted ducks, and 1 pair of fancy pigeons (Taganrog tumbler)

Very young.  I got him from ChickenCrazy12.  He basically just found out he has a Pee Pee.

Wish my drakes would get their job done! At least I don't have to worry about the problem we have at work. We get to deal with several muscovy drakes that want chickens as girlfriends. ep.gif

3 quail in bruces hands.jpg

 

Here they are trying to hide between DHs big fingers.  I have tiny little hands, and wear rings sized 5, but he has man hands, for a good comparison.  They are eating, drinking and pooping, so I'm a happy quail mama today.  The girls are ecstatic, and love them immensely.

This duck would try to mate with a wet mop right now.. I swear.

big_smile.png ok Dutch.

Still chipping away at everyone, mostly African. I have removed enough that he has gotten wing fee and is pushing so hard to get head out that his body is starting to spill over the end of the shell. Hoping he can get out on his own.
