    Hubby brought these two ladies home yesterday. Can anyone tell me what breeds they are? Lucy is, of course, the redhead. Thanks!

    Quote:No feathered feet on either girl.

    on another note, Lucy's beak is crooked and doesn't match up properly. WIll that be an issue later on?

    Thats called a cross beak. Many people cull those birds. I've heard of a few living with special care.

    Cull means to kill/slaughter.

    If you do not cull her she will most likely starve to death. I'm sorry. [​IMG]
