Two new little arrivals

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Over the weekend, I did some gardening at my grandmother's house and came across these two little ones just, kind of, plonked in a flower pot. My grandma said that no mum or dad had been around for many hours so guess who has 2 new little foster-kids? I'm keeping them warm and they seem to have actually grown a tiny bit in the last couple of days. I'll let you know how they go. So much for orphaned kittens!

Wouldn't it have been better to leave them there for a bit longer in case the mommy came back for them, so that they have the best chance at survival??

I thought of that but they were very cold and my grandma said they had been there without mum or dad for nearly a day. I rang my local vet and he said that the parents should only leave them for short periods to feed and that their best chance was to be fostered.

Any idea what kind of eggs they are? I saw that pic and thought of that one Simpson's episode where Bart takes care of the eggs that turn out to be horrible lizards that destroy Springfield's bird population. LOL

I think they might be pigeon eggs. The pigeons are notorious around here for just gathering 3 or 4 sticks and laying their eggs there, teetering on some ledge somewhere or even not bothering to make a nest at all, just laying them in anything that looks remotely like a nest! I saw that Simpsons episode, LOL.

Well now I am very curious as to what kind of eggs these are!!! Keep us posted! And good luck with them!

I am soooo embarrassed! It turns out both eggs were infertile, so here I am happily chatting away to them, telling them to grow up into big strong birdies etc. etc. and there are no birdies inside! LOL The growth that I thought I saw was the contents of the egg settling.

Well, at least my first two fosters for this year didn't die...technically...
