We sale only fully weaned babies, whenever possible we leave the chicks with their parents for the first two weeks, this gives the babies an excellent start. As their eyes are just starting to open at this age the first thing their eyes will be focusing on is people. This means they imprint on people and helps them become the best pets possible.
Babies are kept in temperature and humidity controlled brooders until they can regulate their own body temperature, this is usually by the time their eyes are completely open and they have started feathering.
We recommend fresh fruit and vegetables in the morning, with free choice of their dry food mixture (pellets, dried fruit) all day. Hopefully they can even share a small portion of the healthy part of your dinner in the evening. But whatever your routine, they adapt quickly. Social time out of the cage is so important, they look forward to being taken out of the cage and it is critical to their mental well being.
Because our babies are raised in our home when they arrive at their new home they understand the household routine; they have heard and seen, a vacuum cleaner, a dog, etc. Babies that come from the largest aviaries have never even seen the inside of a house, so everything is scary. We don't mean that those babies won't make wonderful pets, our babies just have a good head start.
