The Healing Power of Bird Farming: A Journey to Happiness

Hello, wonderful people! Dexter here, bringing you another slice of life from Dexter’s World. Today, I want to share something that’s very close to my heart—the therapeutic joy of bird farming. Life, with all its mysteries and miracles, offers us countless paths to happiness. For me, that happiness is found in the simple, natural things: interacting with animals, tending to plants, and immersing myself in nature. Among these, bird farming stands out as a source of profound joy and fulfillment.

The Soul-Soothing Magic of Birds

Bird farming is more than just an activity; it’s an engagement with life that fills the soul. Whether it’s the colorful flutter of African lovebirds, the chirpy conversations of parakeets, or the dream of adding majestic parrots to our family, each moment spent with these creatures is a step closer to inner peace. The beauty of bird farming lies not just in the potential for profit but in its ability to heal the soul. In moments of loneliness or sadness, the simple act of feeding these birds can uplift the spirit and bring unparalleled happiness.

Hand-Feeding: A Bond Beyond Words

Our journey with hand-feeding the babies of our African lovebirds has been nothing short of magical. These tiny beings, now tamed and seeing me as their father, have become a testament to the incredible bond humans can share with birds. This connection is a source of daily inspiration and joy, a reminder of the beautiful interdependence between humans and nature.

Training for Tricks: A Goal for October

In the spirit of engaging further with our feathered friends, I’ve set a goal to teach our African lovebird babies to play basketball by this month of October. Birds are remarkably intelligent and capable of learning various tricks. Adopting a reward and merit system, where successful tasks are met with treats, we’re embarking on an exciting journey to unlock the full potential of these dynamic creatures. This training not only promises to be a delightful spectacle but also a deeper dive into the understanding and communication between species.

The Right Diet for Flourishing Feathers

A significant part of our success in hand-feeding involves the careful selection of their diet. Contrary to buying ready-made bird formulas, I’ve opted for a mix of cereals, soy, vegetables, hard-boiled eggs, and Moringa—nature’s powerhouse of nutrients. This balanced, natural diet has contributed significantly to their rapid growth and vibrant health.

Letting Them Spread Their Wings

An important lesson learned through this journey is the timing of hand-feeding. To ensure the survival and well-being of baby birds, it’s crucial to begin hand-feeding only when they’re fully feathered, around three to four weeks old. This practice minimizes the risks and maximizes the chances of their thriving under human care.

Dreaming of a Bird Paradise

Looking ahead, I envision transforming our farm into a paradise where birds can roam freely, returning to us by nightfall to nest and raise their young. This dream extends to creating a haven where visitors can dine and delight in the company of these beautiful birds, making our farm not just a place of business, but a sanctuary of happiness and healing.
