Actually, given the growth rates implied by the bone data,
Maiasaura chicks would have a voracious appatite - much like
the chick of modern birds. The parents would be kept busy indeed.
Also, given the large beak, and the *cheeks*, a Maiasaurua could
probably carry a good bit of food.

The peace of God be with you.
