4th of July babies
Today I received eight very tiny pheasant chicks. They appear to have been hatched yesterday and were found coming out of a recentlty swathed hay field with no parent seen. These little babies will be capable of flight in just a short time but because they have to be brooded at night, they will stay here for a few weeks until old enough and feathered enough for release back where they were found. It's apparently a very good habitat for raising pheasants.
