Re: Feeding Baby Dinos
Few important things I forgot to mention when caring for baby birds: feeding
should be done as close to every half hour/45 minutes as you can from sun up
to sun down, leave the baby bird a dish of food till you see it has started
feeding on his own. I would not recommend leaving it water till you see it
has started eating on its own then leave it a small dish like a mayonnaise
jar lid with a small stone in it. Also you should have a branch for it to
perch on and feed it without handling it or you risk the bird bonding with
humans. If its a very young bird and doesn't perch make it a nest with small
plastic container lined with tissues till its old enough to perch.
Let me know how you make out.
If you can get it to a rehabilitation facility it would be better for both
you and the bird!
Lastly, should anyone pick up a baby dove species (mourning dove, rock dove
commonly called pigeon) these species have to be tube fed and will not
survive without going to rehabilitation facility. Very young birds that will
not gap will also require tube feeding, which cannot be done without proper
