    Don't listen to them your in the right spot! Mandarins are a easy to raise exotic! They only need a 10x10 pen with some brush to be happy! They lay in elevated best boxes and for the babies it's always good to give them a little but of meal worms to get them going!! The gorgeous colors they are known for are only there for a couple months then they molt. The male then looks like the female but he gets his colors again once breeding season rolls around
