    I have the most beautiful 5 week old baby bird ever. Such personality if another baby seems in trouble he/she comes running over to help. I'm thinking roo but the comb hasn't grown and he she has a ton of feathers what y'all think? [​IMG]

    If I got an incubator id be in trouble....absolute trouble. I'm sure it would never get unplugged and I'd have to skip mortgage payments for feed
