I just purchased two pairs of white homers on Thursday, and need some pointers. One pair is from this year and the other pair are adults, and both pairs have never been flown before. So how long till they can be let out to fly? And when I have them trained, what is the best way to catch them ( this is such a stupid question, but they are hard to catch!)? I was out feeding them this morning and noticed that one of the males has some light gray feathers on his breast. Will this mean that his offspring will have gray feathers too? And one more question, I was holding one about an hour ago and this little bug come crawling out of the feathers. . It was oblong, and kinda brownish, and really small. What is the best way to get rid of the bugs? This made me question the care that the breeder gave these birds. Needless to say I won't be getting birds from this person anymore. Any pointers would be super!!!
