Hi, i’m Oscar, the founder of Homeground Birds. In addition to keeping variety of birds, provision bird services and products, we are also trying something a little different, that is, offering free education to our youth.We make sure every single idea we encounter is recorded, written and made as either pdf/ebook or blog post and is released for free to readers. we want to deep down share our work with our fellow African youth.
Homeground Birds need help start building new birds house(outdoor and indoor). This is no exception. Homeground Birds is a project we have been developing to allow our people see birds and tell stories currently and in the future. Our action story has been set in a brand uniqueness that we are eager to explore the self employment opportunities/ideas in Africa as well as to end the fixation which states that, “Africa is poor continent”.
Space and Shelter for the birds has been a major problem to us. We understand the complexities our birds go through, but for all handwork we had to operate in the limited space and poor shelters where all the ideals are not always gathered to. With this, we are after our people, and we love seeing change that we need. That is why we need help!

This time has come to get a better place and housing and we need to raise KSH 50,000 by 11st December fit it out and make a cool birds environment.
This is our first venture to help bring the action into live, we will be able to offer conventions starting from our home, Africa and even abroad. Additional backing will go towards forwarding the goal, helping sought out future issues and helping us create new interesting projects.

Our current goal: Ksh 50,000

Keep spreading the word and we will be hitting the higher goals in no time!

Help Us Improve the Future

See you.

The African Grey Parrot

The African Grey parrot is considered a large bird,
approximately 12 to 13 inches from beak to tail, with a
wingspan of 20 inches. They are native to western and
central Africa. African Grey Parrots mate for life.

Colors: grey feathers, white patches around the eyes and
red tail feathers. The curved bill is dark grey.
Food: seeds, berries, nuts and fruit.
Average Lifespan: 50 to 65 years!

The African Grey is a very talkative, smart and sensitive bird.
Because these birds are so smart, they tend to be
demanding pets, and will get bored quickly if not stimulated.

African Greys have been said to be the most intelligent of birds.
They pick up on words and sounds very quickly, including the sounds of telephones, microwaves, and even other pets like dogs and cats. Some boast
vocabularies of up to 2000 words! It’s no wonder that many Grey owners are
careful to watch what they say around their

Perfect ways to Save Cash

Step 1: Determine the week of the year
For example, this week is July 13 to July 19. It is the 29th week of the year.
Step 2: Choose a day of the week that is best to make a deposit or do an online transfer
If you know that Sundays are best for you to focus on your money and other personal business choose Sunday. If Wednesdays after work, after volunteering or after the gym are best, choose Wednesdays. Whatever day is best for you. Just remember to stick this day. If you change it from week to week you’ll risk losing your momentum.
Step 3: Open or designate a dedicated savings account
One of the reasons why this strategy is so successful is because you have a specific action to take in a specific account. To see your savings accumulate, from week to week, serves as motivation to keep saving. Having a specific account to do this, versus using your checking account or some other type of account, helps separate your savings from your “operating money” used for bills and monthly expenses. When you co-mingle, or mix these monies, you run the risk of spending your savings and/or losing motivation to save.
Step 4: Make the deposit or transfer
On your chosen day of the week, make a deposit for or transfer the dollar equivalent of the week of the year to your savings account. For example, since we are in the 29th week of the year, you would deposit or transfer $29 for this week.
Step 5: Do it again next week!
Next week, we will be in the 30th week of the year. You will deposit or transfer $30 next week.

A Modified Poultry Cages*

Wire poultry cages 30 x 46 x 41 cm (12 x 18 x 16 in.) high, in three 
batteries of 10 cages each, may be  suspended on a custom made rack 
over standard, slightly forward sloping, rat-rack dropping trays. The fronts 
of the cage batteries are modified to suspend feed and water troughs or 
individual cups. Temporary dividers can easily be inserted between the 
individual cages if desired, although signs of insecurity, or of fighting 
between birds in adjacent cages, has not been a problem. Birds have 
thrived in these cages over a period  of 12 years with no indication of 
maladjustment, and have been used consistently in behavioral studies. On 
release, at any time, they are able to fly immediately.  
In addition to being far less expensive, routine cleaning is much quicker 
and easier than with standard, individual cages. Dust control, as in all 
pigeon rooms, presents a problem,  the control of which in this cage 
system, may be aided by a gentle spraying of the racks and pigeons with 
water. (Pigeons, it should be noted, like to bath and splash if given the opportunity.



Where did Domestication of Doves and Pigons Start?

  • Archaeological records suggest that  both pigeons and doves trace their 
  • domestication back to around 5000 BC. Greek and Roman writings refer to 
  • the selective breeding and housing of  pigeons in dove cotes (Levi, 1969), 
  • which must represent one of man's first recorded attempts at intensive 
  • animal production.  
  • The hardy and prolific Columba livia has, through the centuries, given rise to 
  • hundreds of breeds and varieties at  the hands of pigeon fanciers. These 
  • exhibit a very wide range of sizes, shapes, forms, and behavioral 
  • characteristics. By far the most numerous single group is that of the racing 
  • homers, which express the characteristic homing and survival instincts 
  • common to all pigeons, but not to doves. It is probable that this almost 
  • complete lack of homing instinct, and its vulnerability to predation accounts 
  • for the captive dove never having been as widely propagated and never 
  • becoming established as a feral bird like the street pigeon. As a consequence, 
  • doves have remained relatively unchanged by selection, with only the fawn 
  • and white coloured varieties being commonly propagated, despite their grace 
  • and the ease with which they can be maintained (Hollander, 1954).  In addition to the keeping of pigeons  for racing and for fancy, their young 
  • (squabs) have long been raised for food. In the USA, a squab industry had 
  • been established by the middle of the 19th century and still flourishes, 
  • particularly in the southern states (Levi, 1969). To date, a large and viable 
  • squab industry has not become established in Canada, although one seems 
  • now to be developing on the west coast.
