Bird Breeding Project

During a meeting with the land owner, I suggested that we abandon our initial plan. "Let's ececute Plan B", I said.
Obviously the reply must be "what is Plan B?".

Honestly I was not sure myself hahaha!
But then cooking up something in the split of a second is nothing new to me. Not in a cunning or sneaky way, but there are just too many plans in my head at any one time. So, sorting out some to meet the occassion appears feasible.

Anyway, plan accepted and now I have to plan for myself.... a bird farm!
A Barau Sanctuary and a Shama breeding facility to be precise is at the core. ;)

The workers' quarters....

the landing strip for my Homing Pigeons? or a "chai" arena for the Jambuls? I have yet to decide....

One of the common sights when I was a kid.... now not so common anymore (a skink wandering around in the garden)

Tortoise Collections

Life would be boring if we just stick to routines. The dilema should be that routines are the best way to keep birds in consistent form....

So to stray a little from routines, I have indulged myself with some cold-blooded friends ;-)

Leopard tortoise - saw some for sale in KL, but with a RM650 price tag, getting this fella a mate is going to be painful :-D

Red-footed tortoise - appears to be growing quite fast. Keeping a pair. One appears to be significantly bigger than the other.

Elongated tortoise - listed as endangered. My friend who kept it for some time (5 years?) said it's a female. Would be interesting if I could find a male.

Asian brown giant tortoise - need a license to keep according to the new law being enforced. The biggest tortoise specie found in Malaysia.

Yellow-spotted river turtle - originated from the jungles of Amazon....

Ah! how's that for a little diversion from all things avian :-D
