Re: Help please New ! hand feeding ???

If you have NEVER hand feed a baby bird I do NOT recommend it. MANY things can go wrong. You don't want to risk the death of the baby. You can over feed, underfeed, feed wrong, have to weigh them on a regular to know how much to feed.... It's a lot. Not even a book can really walk you through appropriately. You would have to do it a few times and watch someone who has done it for years do it to really know what your doing and the risk for someone "New" hand rearing. Sometimes you have to force feed... But you need to know when you must take it that far... I do not recommend you get one at that age.
