|Name:||Cage, companion, and backyard birds|
|Theme:||keeping, raising, and breeding birds- companion, and wildlife rehab|
|About:||This is an asylum for pet cage birds, backyard birds, and keeping injured wild birds. Talk about anything related to birds- breeding, handfeeding, cages, cage setup, DIY cages, toys, food, playing, talk about your own birds, talk about problems and solutions. Talk about the birds at your feeders being silly! (The quail in my backyard can't sit at the hanging feeder, so instead they fly up and hit it, knock out a bunch of seed, and pig out.) If it relates, however vaguely, to something that has feathers, it's allowed. All experience levels are welcome, including the birdless who are just interested.|
I started this asylum because I wanted to see what IJ had on finches (I'm getting some when I've saved enough to build them a 48" long flight cage) and -gasp!- there wasn't a cage bird community. THERE IS NOW. :D
This is an open, unmoderated asylum, and will remain so unless and until there are problems. I don't have much time to get it started just now, and I'm far from a bird expert- my last bird has been dead for over five years. If anyone else would like to be mod or co-mod, drop me a line.
If you don't see an interest and want it listed, please let me know.
Do answer people's questions, but try to remember to say where the knowledge came from. Is it from your experience, something you've heard about, or from a website? Share the website if possible.
Please be kind to each other. You don't have to be mature, but be civil and as polite as you know how to be. Don't be inflammatory (don't start fights), and try to assume that whoever-it-was didn't mean to offend you.
