I weaned a single youngster from the stock birds yesterday, 23 days old. It was coming out of it’s nest box.

I went in to the young bird loft this morning and started scraping out. It is the only youngster on the floor at present. I have another 2 to wean next week, then quite a few the following week or so. 

It couldn’t work out why all the others were up in perches and it couldn’t get to them as I was scraping the floor. So it decided to get as high as it could.

It was quite happy sat in my shoulder while I continued scraping.

Thanks Killer. I like deep perches, especially with youngsters. I find it is much easier to catch them and get them friendly as that go back into the perches when approached rather than fly out. 

When I went and scraped them out this afternoon that little youngster jumped straight onto my back again as soon as I bent down to scrape the floor.

Lovely baby. Bit of quality. {pear}:happy:  

I like pigeons that will sit on you. Old Diver, the good old cock bird, stands on me when I am cleaning out, and the 'Billion Dollar baby' flies across onto me every time I go in the shed. 

Shows character, I think. 

Regards

Murray.
