In the Nest

DAY 16: Baby Starlings

I couldn't take very many photos, as the mites were getting all over me. The mites were worse than ever today, so I went and found a feed store and brought some Prozap poultry delousing powder. I put a bunch in the nest to kill off most of the mites and then removed the chicks and took them down to my shower for "delousing." *Note* -- There were only three babies left this morning. They can fly now and were pulling their heads out of the nest a lot this morning. They were pretty angry at me during the "delousing," pecking and screaming bloody murder. I hope mom isn't mad at all the powder in the nest and that she will return tomorrow.
