New with ER Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello my name is Stephanie and we are going to be starting a little chicken coop, but a baby black bird sorta dropped into our lap and I need to clear up a few questions. If it was a kitten puppy mammal of any kind I would have it made with my health back ground, but I think I am flunking at my first fowl emergency and we dont even have our chickens yet

It looks to be almost ready to fly and the poor think has skinned joints, scratches and won't eat the egg yolk protein mix I found earlier on this sight. Looking for any idea's to bring him through to freedom, please

Thank You, Stephanie

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join us here! Sounds like it could be trying to fledge. I would try to feed it some grubs of some kind with tweezers. Just try to mimic its parents. I'm one expert on this but just going through on what I have seen.

Good luck with the little bird fl.gif

I agree.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
