My pair of Pekin Robins have just completed constructing a nest amongst the overhanging ever green brush in the aviary and laid 3 eggs! With the possibility of chicks falling out of the nest onto the aviary floor i constructed a wire “hammock” and hung it immediately under the nest! Now I am getting ready for the chicks to hatch in about 12 days by stocking up on mini & adult waxworms, frozen pinkies & buffalo worms and hopefully produce some Aliens (the pupae of the Darkling beetle) and some soft white skin mealworms (when the mealworm sheds its hard skin!!) and ensuring there is a dose if vitamin B to help the chicks on their way. Wish me luck!!
