how to minimize stress during transport
by Harold schessler
I am about to adopt 2 Suns & a Nandy from someone who lives 60 miles away.
The Suns are currently sitting on 2 clutches of eggs.
we are wondering whether we should wait until they have 1)abandoned their eggs, 2) remove the eggs and wait for a number of days for them to quiet down or
3)transfer them while nesting 4) take their nest box (and eggs) away a few days before movement - don't know which would be less stressful.
The Suns are laying but the Nandy has joined in and sits on the eggs too! Incredible!
I have lots of experience with birds but don't know what to do in this instance to avoid trauma to these precious girls.
We will be grateful for your opinions.
