Oldest baby fledged! :)
My oldest baby (4 weeks) came out of the nest today. I was prepared for it by lining that half of the flight cage grate with fleece over top of rags and cardboard to cushion his landing a bit. He had been sitting in the door of the nest box the last couple of days, so I figured it was coming soon. Do I leave him out, or should I put him back in the nest box tonight at bed time? Mom sleeps in the nest box with the chicks, but Dad has been sleeping on a perch in the cage the last couple weeks.
Thank you moonchild for the pretty signature!
