2 baby ducklings inside with African Grey?
Hello. I have been a bird lover for over 30 years and have rehabilitated wild birds in the past. My neighbors know this, and yesterday came home to 2 ducklings in a box on my front porch. Naturally since it was cold and rainy I brought them in.
I am skeptical about raising them since I have had my beautiful African Grey for 15 years and do not want her to get sick. I have a small 3 bedroom house. I set the ducks up in my sons bedroom with a radiator to keep them warm. I do have an unused aviary outside which I can transfer these ducks to in a couple of weeks.
Don't know what to do. I have had wild birds live in my house before, my vet would check their health, but usually after I introduced them into my house. I soon learned I was very lucky they were healthy. Can I safely keep them indoors for the time being? Thank you so much in advance.
