    I don't think it's a good idea to try and hatch wild birds. jmho I once took some starling eggs out of my dryer pipe where they had built a nest and started to incubate them. They were developing but then I was told that they had to have the mother feed them because she would give them some kind of enzyme or something that they needed to live. I decided to stop incubating. I would think it would be terribly difficult to keep a baby robin alive from the beginning. Other nesting birds too. I did raise two robins to adulthood when I was a kid but they already had some feathering.
