Bubblegum meets Ruth
It was a beautiful sunny day, when I went out to check on Bubblegum. She was just about done with her training, but still had a couple of things to learn. I had been working on taming her for 2 weeks. She was about 3 weeks old at this point and eventually became my tamest, sweetest, stranger-friendly bird. Anyway, back to the story. I walked up to her training pen and made an assessment of her behavior. She was excited to see me, naturally, since I always tried to remember to bring her worms. She started pacing the front of the cage. I opened the door to her cage and reached for her water bowl. As I was reached for it, Bubblegum made a quick dash through the door. I swirled around and ran after her, calling her name repeatedly. She ran to my aviary door, where I kept all my other chickens. Ruth, my light Brahma hen, who had already adopted a 3 week old Americana, saw bubblegum and immediately ran over to her, Ruth, than started doing her mother hen call. Bubblegum rushed toward her and started peeping. When I saw how they reacted when they saw each other, I decided to try letting Bubblegum stay in the pen with Ruth and the other chickens. Bubblegum still hadn’t fully healed from being crushed by a cage, so I wasn’t sure if the other hens would pick on her. Often times, when you put a injured bird with a flock of birds, the injured bird gets picked on and heals very slow- if at all. So it was a risk, but I decided I would pull her out if she looked like she was being picked on. So, I opened the door and let her run through. She ran straight to Ruth. They both continued calling untill they reached each other. They then immediately started comforting each other with soft peeps. My rooster stared at her, then began to approach her. As he began walking towards her, Ruth charged him and ran straight back to Bubblegum. It was incredible! It was as if Ruth thought she had hatched this 3 week old chick. The point of this story is that Ruth was smart enough to recognize that this THREE WEEK OLD chick had no mother. And Ruth decided the very minute she saw her, that she was going to foster this chicken.
This is Kathica. Kathica is the best rabbit in the world. She’s a New Zealand rabbit. She’s about 5 weeks old. She is the runt of the litter, and has always been VERY tame. You can set her on the ground outside and she will follow you everywhere. She loves grass and peas. If she wants to be pet or held, she will lick your toes. She loves to explore, and licks everything she likes. We brought her inside to be an inside pet at just 3 weeks of age. She really likes to chew on my leather watch. Over all, she’s a really easy inside pet. It’s just like having a dog… Except, she doesn’t eat furniture.
i have lots of pets. i have a pet rabbit named Kathica. she is very sweet and follows me everywhere. i can even take her outside with me and she will continue to follow me. i am currently teaching her to use the litter box, since she is an inside pet. she was the runt of her litter, and wasnt growing properly, so me and my family decided we would have to bring her inside if she was going to live. she did, and still does, do very well as an inside pet. every evenig i take her out to the living room and hold her. and every morning, i let her run around my room. i did alot of research on raising 3 week old rabbits as house pets and found that it was no easy task. she still is not fully litter trained, but is getting better and better every day. i also have a button quail named Sparkery. when i got him, he was full grown and hadn't been handled very much. so, as you can imagine, it took a little while to tame him up. but my work has finally payed off. Sparkey will now run up to me. now let me tell you a few things you may not know about button quail: 1. a full grown button quail is the size of a day old chick 2. a newly hatched button quail is the size of a DICE 3.these tiny birds can fly over a 3 story house, and are VERY active birds. 4. though these birds can fly, they usaully prefer keeping their feet on the ground.
this is a picture of some button quail:
