Last night I brought home 3 older black silkies. These birds have never seen fresh air sunlight or any food other than from a bag. I felt horrible seeing the conditions the have lived in for 2 yrs. So on the one hand I'm happy to get them out of there, but on the other they have no clue about the new enviroment. I have them in a good sized tractor on the dirt where there is abundant bugs, grass, plants, air sun, rain etc. I am also prepped for a variety of homemade food. I wish I had a bird to show them the ropes but I dont. Do you think instinct will take over as they adjust? I dangled a huge worm right infront of them and nothing. They still havent come out of the box I brought them home in so I am gently tipping the box a bit each time i check on them. So has anyone out there experienced this? How did ot go?
