I'd only planed on a few birds for my flock this summer. I ordered a dozen straight run chicks to replace about half of my layers this fall. Then a batch of wild ducklings (12) came in for rehab. Add a half dozen baby blackbirds. Oh look! Someone gust gave me 8 domestic goslings that they got by mistake. Lets throw in five more baby mallards, how about another half dozen blackbirds...sure , no problem. Oops, here come the turkeys I ordered, What? The order got doubled with a free one thrown in? (15). Ok. Oh crap. I just rescued 17 finches (half on nests) from a nursing home. Oh boy. I just found a box of baby robins left on the porch. Well, maybe this is it. Wait. I have two domestic ducks on nests and a peahen with 5 eggs in the garden. Is Alfred Hitchcock hiding around the corner?

We just added a red fox kit to the mix,(along with porcupines, squirrels and turtles), it could reduce the bird population if she gets loose.

Oh heck, what's a few more animals LOL. I'm sure you don't have time for pictures, but just in case, I'd love to see what a baby fox looks like. Bless your heart for taking in and caring for these animals!

I envy you the porcupine. I just think they are the neatest little critters. There are supposed to be a few in West Virginia, but nothing closer to me than that. I wish you great success with all the critters, I know how much work the mammals are...
