Hello once again, and welcome back to Dexter’s World channel! Early this morning, I found myself immersed in the serenity of my garden, tidying up and trimming down unnecessary weeds with my trusty grass cutter. Not only did this activity help in beautifying my garden, but it also brought me to a moment of introspection about life. Just as we need to trim away the overgrown and unnecessary parts of our garden, we also need to cut away negative attitudes such as anger, hatred, and jealousy from our lives. This process is essential for living a long, joyful life.
Bird Update: Embracing Change and Learning
In today’s video, I am excited to share some updates and new realizations about our feathered friends – the birds. Our avian companions have taught me lessons that are applicable not only in aviculture but in life as well.
The Dilemma with Parakeets and Zebra Fins:
As I observed, our parakeets and zebra fins had some cohabitation issues. The zebra fins, especially during their nesting period, were getting disturbed by the parakeets. This led me to take a proactive step to ensure a peaceful coexistence.
Creating a Solution:
Understanding the need for privacy for the zebra fins, especially during their nesting period, I decided to make an adjustment. I introduced a bamboo nest box with a small entrance, just enough for the zebra fins to get in and out, ensuring that the parakeets could not disturb them anymore. This was a new experiment for me, and I was open to seeing how it would pan out, ready to make further adjustments if necessary.
A Lesson in Aviculture: Ensuring a Peaceful Environment
I’ve realized that when breeding birds, it’s crucial to maintain a disturbance-free environment. Here are some insights:
- Separate the Babies: If you allow the baby birds to grow in the breeding cage, it can create disturbance for the parent birds. Hence, it’s advisable to transfer them to a flight cage or a smaller cage where they can pair naturally.
- Identifying Babies from Parents: It’s crucial to ensure that you don’t accidentally separate the parent birds from their chicks during the harvesting process. Pay close attention to their appearance; the babies usually have cleaner and undirty beaks compared to the parents.
Maintaining Cleanliness and Providing Proper Nutrition
- Cleanliness is Key: Ensure that the bird’s environment is always clean to prevent ants and other pests from disturbing them.
- Proper Nutrition: Providing the right kind of food plays a significant role in the successful breeding of birds.
Conclusion: Embracing Change and Continual Learning
As we wrap up today’s session, I hope the learnings and realizations shared have been helpful. Remember, life, just like aviculture, is a continuous learning journey. We need to be open to making adjustments, learning, and evolving for the better.
