Woody and Alan

The Two Squabs = Young Wood pigeons, (Woody and Alan) are doing well in spite of my inexperience with young nestlings. They seem to be growing fast on the diet of liquidised wild bird seed, wheat  oats, chick starter and lettuce.
I have now started to give them some of the solid mashed  residue from the liquidiser, messy but getting them used to solids.There's no doubt caring for young birds is messy but rewarding !  Short vid below prior to feeding.

Meanwhile the Mother duck and 15 ducklings are also doing well and starting to grow.
