So I was voted to bring the petting zoo animals for a local 4-h group's family fun fair on tuesday. I think my silkies would be loved by the kids, but I was wondering. Do you think my birds would be okay for 2 hours in the shade. Would the noise and stress be harmful to them? I spent a lot of money on these silkies, and I would hate for them to die on me or something because they freaked at a fair. They are like 2 months old. I would probably bring like three of them, and keep them in a cage. Then hold one and let the kids pet it, switching them out every 15 minutes or so, so none of them would be bugged all day. Would this be okay for my babies. I would love to bring them, but I don't want to cause health risks.
