New! Chukar Bird At MasiranFarm

Recently I've acquire 2 pairs of Chukar bird (aka Chukar Partridge) from a friend. this bird habitat is quite similar to quail and its size is three times larger than adult quail. At MasiranFarm, I place them together with the Budgies in a hut or large bird cage. It can live peacefully with the Budgies and at the same time eat the their leftovers. Its own food is black bran.Next are some pictures taken at MasiranFarm.

There are several species of country chicken at Masiranfarm. Among them is bald country chicken. Bald means its neck have no feathers. Its the hybrid of female bearded chicken (have no neck feathers) with the original male country chicken. The purpose is to ensure the next species can endure being hit by rain.

Geese Bathing And Mating

Rare event occur at MasiranFarm in June 2009, hundreds geese bath happily and in interval mating activities occurred. And at the same time during that month, the geese doesn't lay eggs at all. It maybe a sign that in the month of June, they didn't lay eggs but kept mating to prepare for laying season next month. It is shown that in early July, the geese started laying. Therefore in July no geese chicks hatch and the demands for them cannot be fulfill.

Next video shows the happiness a flock of geese bathing and mating in the water. This video was recorded 24 June 2009 at 3.30 pm after eating. Enjoy...
