Hi there everybody! I brought home a beautiful pair of Fantails two days ago, and I'm already crazy in love with them,. I can already tell this project is gonna get out of hand before long - I had this same feeling when I brought home my first Shamo hen, and those have turned into my favorite chicken breed. So, I've noticed a few things about Norma and Norman. First off, wow, lots of noises! I have no idea what they are trying to say, though. Norma (who according to the seller was female) makes a growling sort of noise when I go to pick her up. Norman (supposed to be a boy) makes a similar noise, but much squeakier. I'm not sure about the ages except that they are juveniles, "at least 3 months". I've also heard the "coo, coo" noise a couple times. Good? Bad? The other thing was that they did fight a bit. They wacked each other with their wings a few times and Norman has picked at Norma's head once or twice. Most of this happened during the ride home, and they haven't done much more fighting since they were put in their quarantine cage. Secondly, I'm not sure about what feed to get! Right now I have them on a mixture of Bar Ale 22% Turkey Grow crumble, and Bar Ale Rojo Grande Rooster Mix (trapper peas, sunflower seed, corn, other grains, mixed with a 16% mini-pellet - was pretty similar to the pigeon feeds I saw available). My feed brand offers four different kinds of pigeon feed - a 12% maintenance pigeon, a 14% breeder pigeon, a 16% MC Racing Pigeon, and a 18% pigeon pellet. The first three are various whole grains, and the fourth is a typical wheat-based pellet. What should I be feeding them now, as juveniles? When should I switch them to an adult feed? When/if they have babies, what should they be eating then? Any supplements they should have? My other question regarding feeding is, should I free-feed or give them meals? A lot of places seem to suggest giving a limited amount to prevent spoilage. I was planning on free-feeding from a 3-pound hanging feeder, but I can ration if it's better for them. Third, if they are male and female like the seller said (he said was pretty sure, but if he was wrong I could come back to get another pair later), when can I expect them to pair? When will they mate and lay their first eggs? Is there anything I need to do for the babies or will they do all the work? I've got about a thousand other nit-picky questions, but those are my big ones. Thanks for all the help y'all have already given me!
