    Excellent idea with the HB egg! They never seem to eat enough crumbles that first week. It's prob helpful too as they associate your hand with good things. Let alone a med delivery device. Smart! I purchased some wing bands & the applier pliers. Just have to muster the courage to use them.
     

  2. It is a bit tricky to get used to and not all the applicators work right out of the box. Some modifying of the bands by bending before inserting them into the applicator makes them work easier.

    If you run into trouble start another thread and I will guide you.

    Here's an old cameo male that at the time has no ladies but that doesn't stop him. IMG_3157.JPG IMG_3171.JPG

    Midnight is it's own color.
     

  8. Like BB said, it is its own color but in this case the Spaulding is what makes it stand out.
     
  9. So hot outside today! We have the fans going but it didn't seem to be enough to ward off the 105* and the heat index of 120*, so what to do? A quick misting system of course! IMG_1794.JPG
    Pretty simple really, all it took was a three tube hose sprinkler, a drill and a hand full of zip ties.

    We put up 150 feet of hose in just a few minutes, and the birds went from glumpy to happy. IMG_1812.JPG
    They were like kids in a kiddie pool, the water was beading up on them and they were drinking the fresh cool water off each others backs.
