Springtime is a very busy time for us as we receive lots of orphaned baby animals, that need to be hand reared and cared for. In particular we rear a lot of baby birds, yesterday we received our very first of the season, a young collared dove.
The phone rings and ‘can you rehome my cockerel’ is what we hear time and time again.
The boys were kept in a suburban house garden where they caused a mess and were given up by their owners. This is a story we hear far too often, people not doing their research before buying pets.
