I'd say more likely it was caused by a group of rambunctious and unruly
teen birds. The problem is that Mother and Father birds just don't
discipline their baby birds the way they used to. As a result, the baby
bird grows up feeling unloved and unwanted, and at the first
opportunity joins a bird gang to prove it's self worth and to join a
common culture where a form of self-identity can be nurtured.
I have used two products. The rubbery paint stuff sold to put on tool
handles. That worked about 18 months with two applications. Next I tried
some Epoxy paint made for a garage floor (I was doing my garage floor when I
bought the new one. It has worked for a number of years now.
Silicone caulk will work, but water will again begin to leak around the
patch, unless you trowel it on with a putty knife, sorta like paint.. I've
used a waterproofing paint, starts with the letter "U". Quikcrete also makes
a waterproofing paint especially for cement products - I think it is called
quikcoat. Also, check for toxic additives, since we are talking birds.
three environmentally friendly choices exist:
1. use it as is
2. patch the crack with cement and cement only (not recommended, the crack
will only reappear)
3. replace it
if you cannot safely put the patching material inside your own drinking
glass (which includes all materials suggested in this thread),
why poison birds with it?
What happens is that this girl meets "Mitch", And then Mitch has this
girl come back to his moms house, but on the way there she stops at a
hotel and gets killed in the shower. Meanwhile, back at Mitch's house,
a bunch of birds get together and set a gas station on fire.
Now, perhaps you can understand why the fountain needs to be patched
Yes, you just have to get the kids to go out and stick a finger in the
birdbath. That 40,000 volts from the bug zapper provides all kinds of fun.
Small boys particularly like the electric pulsating jolt that it provides.
More kewl than a sugar high.
