Female Temminck's is on her way!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

My male, Mr. T, was so very chatty this morning he must know that I have a girl on her way just for him!  I have never heard him so talkative, right next to me, I do not know how to explain the noises he was making, maybe a deep "peep".  The female should be here by Wednesday, hopefully tomorrow!

I have some Porcelain D'Uccles, Australorps, Araucana, India Blue Peafowl, Red Golden & Temminck Pheasants, Mandarin ducks, a few Nigerian & Pygmy goats, a couple cats, a DH and a few kids.  Simple and happy.

I just checked tracing and she left MN yesterday at 3 pm and should arrive today by 3 pm.  SWEEEEET!  Can I just put her in the enclosure with the others, wait till night, or something else?

Very nice, Happy!!  I would wait until evening.  Let her rest and gather herself a bit first.

He may be aggressive with her so be prepared.  Ideally, I have been told to remove the male for awhile.  If you can't then make sure there is a lot of thick, heavy cover if you can't take your male out for awhile.  My Swinhoe male keeps the Temm's male from picking on the girls.

She had a GUARANTEED delivery by 3:00 pm today.  Guess what, not here.  sad.png  Last tracking info is that she is on CT.   I called the PO and of course no one is there to explain why.  I hope she is ok.  fl.gif

I got a call at 6:30 am this morning and immediately went to pick her up.  That is 15 hours after their "guaranteed" arrival time.  I just left a message with our local customer service rep, waiting for a return call.  Shipping was $50 and she is a LIVE animal.  She looks ok but I want to know what happened.
