My son loves animals, he would live at the pet store if we left him there, I'm sure the owners wouldn't mind, He would gladly handle each one of the animals to tame them and even clean their cages.
but I think they wouldn't want to feed him. Riley likes to eat large quantities of healthy food, No pop tarts for him!
Last spring our neighbor told us about a man who kept pigeons and would give him some of his pigeons who didn't do this trick, (they do flips) very well. They are very amusing to watch.
Well, this Sunday Riley left the cage open and the pigeons wouldn't cooperate and go back in so we had to leave them out, and of course they got ate, and now we have the babies to take care of.
I hate feeding baby birds, they don't do well in my care, and Riley isn't any better at it,
So here is my dilemma do I take them to the local bird lady Diana Freedman, who always ends up with any baby bird I find, Last year it was cardinals, I just couldn't let them die. or take my chances, Riley has decided he doesn't care for birds very much.
the funny part is he wants a corn snake now so bad he can't see straight. What could go wrong with a corn snake?
