Rarely seen picture of baby hummer in nest. Nest is about the size of a half dollar coin.
I got started in aviculture in 1967. 1st ordered 100 variety day old chicks from McMurry Hatchery. It continue to grow, quail, geese, ducks, pheasants, guinea's, peafowl, Emu and some songbirds and other prohibited fowl(raptors) but living way out in the "sticks" no one knew or cared about what I was raising. Currently, im raising/breeding Red Golden, Yellow Golden, Lady Amherst, Elliot, Reeves, Bianchi, Versicolor, Ijima Copper, Idaho Blueback ringnecked, Wild Kansas ringnecked, Green, Black and Blue Melanistic pheasants, plus 16 other species of "true pheasants". Also, Greater Prairie chickens, Gamble, Blue, Valley, Mountain, Mexican Speckeled Bobwhites, Northern Bobwhites and Button quail. Here are a few of my favorite pics.
