Chirpy The Blackbird Chick Practices His Flying

We have built a flight partitioned off in the chicken and duck run for Chirpy the rescue blackbird chick to practice his flying and become a bit more independent. We used recycled panels we had intended to get rid and it has made him a nice 9ft by 3ft area. He didn’t really look very impressed with all our hard work but it is early days.


He has only had limited flying practice before so I was happy with his progress. I think it is going to be a very difficult job for us to make him independent though. I’ll record his progress as he goes along.
