2 Quails who live in the indoor aviary with the cockatiels and budgies actually laid an egg last week. It was so Tiny and looked like a Cadburys chocolate Mini Egg. Am not sure what to do with it, they're meant to be a delicacy but eaten how?
Here is a picture of it alongside a hen egg (a bantam egg is somewhere in between sized)
Put Apple Cider Vinegar in their water (not if in a galvanised drinker, only plastic) as ACV lowers the freezing point for the water.
Even though we hate using straw due to mites and bugs, this week we will make an exception and ensure they all have a deep layered floor as not many ex batts use the provided low perches.
Please take extra care of your ladies at this time of year, the warm porridge radiates them from the insides for a while, but do not leave them out after dark-get them in the cosiness of their houses where they will snuggle and share warmth.
