Found Budgies - HELP
About a 3 days ago my two cats found a small box and brought it inside. They hid it under my kitchen table, so I didnt see it. Yesterday I came home from work and there were three budgies ontop of the bookshelf in my kitchen, when I looked around I found the box full of cotton wool and a few feathers...I can only guess that these budgies were in the box. I'm guessing that this means that someone has abandoned them or something. I've put notices all around my local area telling ppl who they can contact, with a picture of the three birds. For now I'm keeping them in my old bird cage, and I have everything they need to be happy (I used to keep budgies a year or so ago).
I was wondering though, two of the birds have no tail feathers (I'd guess that my cats probably had a go at them), do their feathers grow back? They are all beautful birds, and it's a shame that they don't have tail feathers.
Also, if nobody replies to the fliers what should I do with them then? I'm willing to keep them, and make sure they are nowhere near my cats, but do you think it would be better to hand them into somebody? I've never been in this situation before, please help asap!
