“We take out the aviary chicks as babies – for release by the hacking method. That is, they are very small placed in such boxes, which are called hacks. There they are feeding and gradually, when their wings are getting stronger, they begin to make their first flights. Gradually get acquainted with the territory. And they are already flying out to look for a food base. And, making sure that there is food, they remain in these parts, ”the nursery said.
