Introducing little Dalai

Since Cagney’s passing in September, it has been on my mind to increase the flock.

Enter little Dalai.

Little Dalai

 

He was re-homed 4 weeks today on the 14th March.  As with re-homes, little is known of his background.  He was approx. 5 months old & was originally with a hen who had died leaving him on his own, hence, I guess, the need to re-home.  His owner had named him Rama.  I decided to rechristen the little one, but wanted to retain his roots & came up with Dalai Rama.

He was housed in a round cage that I did not want so he was transferred to my travel cage.  Once home, I quickly finalised the set up of his quarantine cage (folding cage) – I had waited until I saw him in case that helped decide what toys to put in.  As he was younger than I imagined, I chose toys that I thought would be more suitable for a youngster.  Once all was set up, I managed to transfer him from the travel cage to his new home (at least for the next 4 weeks) & left him to settle.

With luck, Bezukhov & Phineas will welcome him!
